Dryshipper Requests

The AMCC may provide a dryshipper (liquid nitrogen vapor shipper) to facilitate collection or transport of frozen specimens to the AMCC. Dryshippers are issued at the discretion of the AMCC Oversight Committee and are contingent upon the availability of a dryshipper. The borrower is responsible for the proper use and safety of the equipment. Dryshippers require time to prepare, so please make the request one week in advance for domestic use and as soon as possible for international use.

Non-AMNH researchers should make a request in a letter on intitutional letterhead, signed by an authorized representative of the institution. Include an explanation of the research project for which the equipment will be used.
