Winter Storm Finn: Potential specimen delays


Updated Jan. 11, 2024 at 11 AM CST

There are two major weather systems moving across the United States that may impact specimen transport. Winter storm Finn and Gerri are expected to spread snow and strong winds and create possible blizzard conditions across large portions of the United States. This may impact courier pickups and cause delays at major hubs (FedEx and UPS). 

We are monitoring and tracking this situation with our logistics partners and are prepared to adjust to minimize challenges. Clients should expect to be contacted directly by the couriers should any routes be modified or canceled.  

For any immediate needs, please contact Customer Service at 800-533-1710 and ask to be forwarded to the Global Logistics specialist.
