Be sure to receive CONFIRMATION of the pickup before placing it in the drop box if:

  • The weather is extremely hot or cold
  • If the specimen requires special handling (i.e. non-fixed specimen)
  • During the weekend (Sunday) or Holiday
  • If there is a concern for the security of the specimen in the lock box

In the event of regional emergencies, such as severe weather, prolonged power outages, etc. it is recommended that patient specimens be retained in the security of your office until confirmation of pickup is received from 4path. We will typically POST HERE any interruptions in our service which may result from such emergencies.
