(1) Specimens submitted for testing must be packaged and shipped in leak-

proof containers in such a manner as will insure their arrival at the laboratory in a testworthy condition, and must be accompanied by department approved forms describing the procedures needed. Upon request the laboratory will provide instructions for proper shipment. An accession charge will be imposed on specimens unsuitable for testing due to the negligence of the person submitting them.

(2) All specimens sent to the laboratory must have shipping costs or postage pre-paid. The laboratory will not accept "collect-on-delivery" shipments.
