Sending Samples To Us
Samples will be stable enough at room temperature so do not have to be submitted on ice. Please make sure that they are well packed if they are being posted.
Please mark them clearly with your name.
You can either leave the samples on the shelf outside lab 314 in the Lindo Ferguson Building, or you can use the internal mail and send them to “Genetic Analysis Services at Otago, Department of Anatomy, Lindo Ferguson Building” (FAO Joanne Gillum)
