Order a prepaid FedEx Air Waybill < 1 lb./ 500g

You can use our prepaid FedEx Air Waybill to quickly ship samples in packages up to one lb./ 500g.

We will generate a prepaid Air Waybill, prefilled with the correct information, and send it to you by e-mail (PDF format) within 24 hours.

Then follow these simple instructions:

  • Place your samples into microtubes. Pack in a suitable transport box. Remember to print and include the sample submission form.
