    You complete the DX Tracked Specimen label, including all contact information, and retain the tracking number in a complimentary log book.

  3. Sending your specimen

    You take your specimens to your local Exchange in green sacks which we provide. You place these into the green sack at the Exchange for collection.

  4. Transporting specimens

    DX collects your specimen from the Exchange after 5pm Monday to Friday as standard, and delivers it to the recipient’s Exchange the following morning (Tuesday to Saturday) by 9am.
