Express Despatch Courier has been serving the medical community since 1985, and we understand the critical importance surrounding medical specimen deliveries. Our knowledgeable medical drivers practice proper specimen handling procedures, such as temperature control, record keeping, and universal precautions. We are committed to the highest quality of service with strict adherence to all regulatory requirements. Our drivers utilize medical transport bags, which meet OSHA and US DOT 49CFR 173.6 criteria for shipping diagnostic specimens and biological products by ground courier transport.
Express Despatch drivers know the importance of maintaining various specimen temperatures and carry dry ice seven days a week, 365 days a year for frozen specimen transport. We ensure that HIPAA secure chain-of-custody procedures are followed and patient confidentiality is protected.
