Every day, infectious substances are transported from sites such as hospitals, medical clinics, and scientific research locations. To ensure the safety of the public, special rules apply to the transport of potentially infectious substances, as well as the cooling agents often used to preserve them. Knowing how to classify and prepare these substances correctly for transport can mean the difference between easy, effective shipments versus delays, lost data, or perished specimens.
