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 institutional letterhead, signed by an authorized representative of the institution. Include an explanation of the research project for which the equipment will be used. Address the letter to Svetlana Katanova, AMCC Collections Manager, American Museum of Natural History, 79th Street at Central Park West, New York, NY, 10024.

AMNH staff may make a request by email to the Collections Manager, Svetlana Katanova. Students and post-doctoral researchers will require a supporting letter from their advisor or academic department head.
