How to send my cDNA library?
Hello everyone, I have just finished an cDNA library for 454 sequencing. But I came cross a difficulty in sendding the sample from China to the USA. Dry ice and other things which can help keep the temprature low enough is forbidden by FedEx or UPS,and so on.
I wonder my cDNA sample may degraded if I used an normal Express mail because It may take 3 days in room temprature.:confused:
I appreciate that anyone can give me some suggestions.

Are you sure dry ice is forbidden by fedex? Within the US, they will ship samples on dry ice, but it is necessary to declare the amount of dry ice and have the proper warning sticker on the outside of the package. The information on shipping various hazardous materials is on the fedex website.

We use World Courier to send our samples. It's not normal courier company as it only handle biological samples. There's a branch in Beijing.
