Subject: International Shipping of Feces
The project I work for requires urgently to transport samples of feces of wild animals from Peru to United States for genetic studies….
The collection and transportation of the samples comply with all the government regulations, however, shipping agencies (like DHL, FEDEX, others) do not accept to transport the part of the samples that are stored in alcohol.
If some of you know of shipping agencies authorized to transport these type of samples either by plane or ship, I would appreciate to respond to this email.
If you happen to know a company that will ship poo in ethanol, please log into Ecolog-L and let this person know. Actually, since immature insects are commonly stored in ethanol, I’m sure someone out there knows the answer!
