Sample shipments to/from Argonne have separate requirements according to their status as hazardous or non-hazardous.
Shipping dewar addresses:
Monday - Friday (except Holidays)
Weekends and Holidays
The Argonne Guest House will take delivery of non-hazardous Fed-Ex Shipments on weekends with at LEAST one of the following conditions met:
If none of these conditions apply or the shipment is hazardous, the shipment will be refused.
The listed recipient is expected to contact the Guest House to ascertain that the shipment has been delivered and arrange to pick it up.
The shipment of samples frozen in propane must abide with all DOT and IATA regulations, the failure to do so may result in a delay or loss of your shipment along with possible fines. Argonne National Laboratory has obtained a letter of competent authority from the US DOT for the legal shipment via air transport of macromolecules frozen in propane, freon, and other flammable and nonflammable gases when packaged in a dry shipper. Please refer to APS Technical Updates on the shipment of samples frozen in propane for shipping instructions. (Technical Publication TUD-25)

Under no circumstances may users transport a nonexempt hazardous or bio-hazardous material to the APS in their own vehicle. To have a hazardous material shipped to NE-CAT, please inform the NE-CAT staff user contact of shipment and address the package to:
