Dr. Russ Jaffe, and the entire staff at ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies wishes you a happy and healthy holiday season. With these holiday wishes in mind, we also want to remind our customers about some of the shipping challenges we face this time of year and how best to minimize their impact on you, your staff, and your clients. Here are a few holiday tips for running LRA by ELISA/ACT tests during the holiday season.
#1 – Check the schedule for days NOT to do blood draws. Download schedule.
Don’t draw blood samples on Monday 12/25 or Monday 1/1.
#2 – Between now and the end of the year, the high volume of packages being shipped is likely to result in delayed delivery of your LRA specimen to our lab. We recommend allowing an extra day for shipping and NOT drawing blood on Fridays.
#3 – If you are drawing blood the week before Christmas, please call us for special instructions for shipping. 800.553.5472.
We will email you a special label to insure your blood sample against late delivery. This may not prevent the specimen from arriving late, but if it does, UPS will be picking up the cost of the blood draw.
