Shipping Bovine and Feline Trichomonas Samples in Cold Weather

Trich samples can be especially difficult to ship in cold weather because they must be kept between 59°F and 99°F degrees from the time of collection until the sample is delivered to KSVDL.
Steps to ensure Trich samples are kept at the correct temperature during shipment include:
  1. Add ample insulation
  2. Add hand warmers or ice packs heated in a microwave to the shipping container
  3. Ship samples next-day delivery
