2) OBTAIN MAILING SUPPLIES

The OVDL accepts specimens shipped through all commercial delivery services, including UPS and FedEx, and the U.S. Postal Service (U.S. Mail). UPS and FedEx are recommended for perishable specimens. While clients can ship specimens in their own containers, the OVDL is also able to provide mailers for shipping specimens. For your convenience and savings, we offer package mailers with the option of prepaid postage on shipping of specimens through UPS (with guaranteed overnight delivery, Monday-Friday). Clients using the pre-paid UPS service are not charged additional shipping by UPS, instead charges will be reflected on the invoice from the OVDL

See our Packaging and Shipping Guidelines for more information.

Please note: When reusing boxes that have been used for other shipments, it is essential that ALL prior labels are removed or covered. As package sorting becomes more automated, any stray labels or marks (on any of the six sides) can cause packages to be routed inappropriately. This causes violations for the delivery service provider and results in fines against the OVDL. Delivery services can end contracts with clients who have repeated violations.

3) PACKAGE SAMPLES

Specimen and packaging requirements differ depending on the nature of the test ordered. Packaging specimens (with minimal likelihood that pathogens are present OR for diagnosis of an infectious disease) requires sufficient inner AND outer packaging. For information on packaging and shipping, please refer to our Packaging and Shipping Guidelines, or contact us at 541.737.3261.

After completing the online form, you will receive two documents via DocuSign that require the primary account holder to electronically sign. These documents are required whether using the online client portal or paper forms for submissions.

Note: Samples will not be tested until a new account is set up and all documents have been electronically signed by the primary account holder.

A submission form should accompany each submission. If using the portal, you can print the submission form once the submission process is completed. Or if you would like to use a paper submission form, our most current forms are available below.  While the OVDL accepts both forms of submission, use of the CoreOne Online Client Portal offers many benefits, such as real time testing status, the ability to view invoices, statements, and make secure online payments.
