    Hello,

    I need to send the methylation panel test kit with an ice pack from the UK... I just wondered if anyone knows of a good ice pack to purchase in the UK that would do the job and be small enough to fit in the envelope they provide.

    Thanks :)

    looking on amazon i can't find any small packs that stay frozen for longer than about 5 hours - is that going to be ok for this purpose? thanks again.

    Hi, harrycat.

    A guy in Australia wrote me recently that he sent blood samples to the lab in Netherlands via Federal Express, that they had a mailer with provision for an ice pack, that he used regular ice, not dry ice, and that the samples arrived in good condition and he got an analysis back that looks O.K. The lab specifies that they want to receive the samples within 48 hours, but Dr. Audhya told me that the preservatives in the sample vials are good for at least three days. I hope this helps.
