The majority of the specimens we receive here at VCS are via postal mail. Most specimens processed at VCS are considered by Australia Post to be Category B items for postage within Australia. These samples must be packed using Triple Packaging guidelines.

The instructions given in the attached resource, when used in conjunction with correct mailing containers supplied by VCS, meet these requirements. Please download the document below for detailed instructions.  VCS Pathology covers the cost of mailing specimens through the use of 'Reply paid' postage.
