Sending laboratory samples

You can send laboratory samples in a letter or a parcel. Sample items are transported in Finland as letters, reply mail items, parcels or freight, for example.

  • The letter item or parcel shipment is delivered for transport by taking it to Posti's service point, ordering a pick-up from the desired location or dropping it off at the contract customer's Pickup and Delivery Service for transport.
  • Samples must not be dropped off in a mailbox or a parcel locker, and they are not allowed to contain dead animals.

The sender is responsible for the correct classification, packaging and markings of the substance. The sample must be packaged according to legal requirements and using a package with yellow and black stripes. If you decide to use another type of box, please mark it with tape that has yellow and black stripes. Please also mark the classification of the item on the packaging.
