Courier Service and the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory
The OSPHL provides courier service for many locations that submit specimens to our laboratory.
The OSPHL Courier Handbook (pdf) is provided for use by healthcare facilities (county health departments, community clinics, etc.) that are using the OSPHL's contracted courier service (Senvoy) to send samples to the OSPHL. This document is intended to help these locations understand this particular courier system.
These materials are not intended to provide comprehensive training about transporting laboratory specimens or general regulatory requirements for transporting laboratory specimens. Additional information about regulatory requirements and training can be found on the Guidelines for Non-Courier Shipping and Transport of Specimens webpage.
