Packaging and Shipping Evaluation Tool



APHL’s Sentinel Laboratory Partnerships and Outreach Subcommittee of the Public Health Preparedness and Response Committee developed this Packaging and Shipping Evaluation Tool to provide a standardized resource for public health laboratories (PHLs) to assess shipments received in the laboratory. The tool is primarily intended for PHLs that are reference level members of the Laboratory Response Network for Biological Threats Preparedness (LRN-B) to assess use of the proper packaging and shipping of biological threat agent rule-out samples sent from sentinel laboratories and may also be utilized for assessments of general Division 6.2 Division 6.2 (Category A and B) and other shipments received.
