New Client Specimen Bag to Be Distributed June 15

On June 15, Mayo Medical Laboratories will begin distributing new ambient, frozen, and refrigerated specimen bags as the items are ordered by clients. In addition to improvements to the typography printed on the bag, the most important change is the new tear-off top section, which will make the bag easier to open upon arrival at Mayo Medical Laboratories. Additionally, when torn along the perforated seam, the biohazard warning is destroyed allowing for an alternative disposal method, which will significantly reduce costs. The bag change is also expected to increase efficiency for Mayo Medical Laboratories Internal Operations as specimens are received at the Superior Drive Support Center.

If you have any questions, please call 800-533-1710.
