Follow the shipping instructions included in the shipping kit before dropping samples at your Azenta dropbox or handing them over to a DHL Express courier. DHL Express will transport your samples to our European facilities in Leipzig for sequencing. Pickup times for your location are given in your CLIMS account, and on the Azenta dropbox or letterbox.
Sample preparation depends on which type of Azenta dropbox is available at your location:
- DHL Express dropbox require samples packed with a DHL label "ready to ship".
- Hosted Azenta dopbox are also processed by DHL Express, but do not require you to prepare a sample shipment. You can simply pack your samples safely in a Azenta Case and either drop your samples or hand them over to your institution’s host.
