Diagnostic Test Kit Shipping

Your Shipments Are a Top Priority for Us

Mercury provides shipping for diagnostic test kits, including category B shipping and blood samples. Our clients are world leaders in precision oncology, hereditary cancer genomics, personalized medicine, pooled COVID-19 testing, and molecular diagnostics focused on pre-implantation. They choose Mercury for our logistics expertise and individual attention to the status of each testing kit shipment. 

We track and monitor each test kit, let you know daily how many shipments will arrive at your lab, and provide detailed data analysis and reporting so you can measure turnaround times.

We can also integrate your information flow to schedule pickups, preprinted shipping labels, and provide numbers and other visibility directly into your own internal systems. 

Our couriers have access to the latest pickup schedules in the area, enabling them to collect packages well after the standard carrier pickup time of 3-5 PM. They operate at night to gather your packages, bring them to our office for processing, and deliver them to express carriers for the same evening's flights. They can wait for crucial packages or perform secondary pickups for packages that weren't ready on schedule. Furthermore, we offer to take packages straight to the airport and hand them over to FedEx and UPS beyond their local station cut-off times. 

Mercury helps you understand the different types of labels that carriers offer for both outbound and inbound shipments, helping you make the right choice. We then work with you to select the right service level, what is needed on the label to keep track of the various tests and other internal information.

We offer both first- and last-mile services.

We can provide dry ice before shipping samples.

Kitting and Assembly Services

We simplify the assembly and shipping of diagnostic kits with timely, cost effective and reliable delivery. Our kitting fulfillment services ensure your products are assembled, packaged, and delivered, streamlining the logistics process for you. Whether you require custom configurations or standardized kits for large-scale screenings, our team of experts will collaborate with you to create the perfect solution. We also use sustainable packaging to reduce environmental impact.  

To ensure chain of custody, we incorporate secure tracking and documentation protocols, guaranteeing the integrity and traceability of your kits from assembly to delivery.

Helping a Vaccine Manufacturer Overcome COVID Challenges

Helping a Vaccine Manufacturer Overcome COVID Challenges

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine manufacturers faced challenges creating a secure environment for their researchers to develop the vaccine. Our client shared this concern, and our team designed a personalized solution. During the critical phase, Mercury coordinated the logistics to ensure the researchers received test kits promptly, and our couriers delivered the tested kits to the diagnostic lab to be tested the same day. This guaranteed the timely delivery of results to the manufacturer and enabled the identification of virus-free workers, ensuring that safety remained a top priority during the vaccine development process.

With that plan in place, the vaccine development process progressed smoothly and on schedule.
