Loan Policy

Loan Request Form

Preparing specimens for shipment requires careful attention to detail. All out-going specimens are imaged prior to departure and scans of the original labels are sent with the specimens. Extreme care is taken with packing to prevent any damage in transit.
The loans are sent by reliable, trackable carriers and borrowers are expected to return the specimens via a similar method.

Specimens may now be requested on-line using the new loan request form.


Loan preparation
