Sending Blood Samples
N R Kendall
24. March 2011
Blood samples are sent from veterinary practices throughout the UK to the NUVetNA lab for trace element and energy analysis. Many samples received were unsuitably packaged and often failed to fulfil the legal obligations of the consignor under UN3373. Packages containing non infectious blood samples should conform to packing instruction 650 under UN3373.
