One member of every lab needs to attend the IATA shippers training in order to qualify to send biological specimens or packages with dry ice.
UPS and FedEx get delivered directly to the Silver/Brown/Waverly/CGSB buildings.
USPS (United States Postal Service) mail all gets routed to the NYU Mail Services at 547 LaGuardia Place and will take an extra day to get to the labs once it is “delivered” according to the company.
USPS mail that looks like personal mail will not be delivered to the labs and needs to go be picked up at NYU Mail Services.
