The transport of blood and urine has typically been done via Federal Express International in the past however once their hub changed from Frankfurt to Cologne, Germany, there were various blood shipments which became delayed and did not make it to the Kief Clinic in the 72 hour window in which the Germany government requires before the blood is no longer useable for testing or for production.
Branch to Hope stepped in to determine a more dependable solution. Through diligent efforts and a persistent pursuit of approval stages, we have established a relationship with an International Courier Express Service that is licensed and approved to transport the blood and urine sample straight to the clinic by a hand carried courier representative:
Within the aircraft
With the package on-ice
Within sight at all times
This service is provided at a cost TBD payable to International Courier Express Service by check or wire transfer. Once the package arrives to the Branch to Hope facility, the package will be carefully prepared for international shipping and the transfer of the package on ice and in preparation with all required paperwork will be delivered by a Branch to Hope representative to the DFW Airport for transport to Germany.
The blood and urine sample, once drawn, must be packaged on ice and placed within the bio-hazard bag provided by Federal Express and shipped for NEXT MORNING DELIVERY to the Branch to Hope facility.
Please call (214) 227-2590 for the shipping address and instructions.
