Collection and Shipping

Specimen collection

Specimen transport


Request sample transport within the Omaha/Council Bluffs Metro-Area by calling 402-559-5070 (option 1).


When sending specimens via FedEx®, it is helpful for our laboratory to know a shipment is en route. Prior to sending, please email or fax the completed test request form to 402-559-7248, including the airbill tracking number. This provides our laboratory team with information that would be needed to communicate with FedEx® and your facility should the specimen not be delivered as expected.
