Whether patient and other biohazard samples can be collected, stored and transported safely from their source to the laboratory for medical diagnostic purposes, clinical trials or research is a difficult question. Biological specimens fall under hazardous materials regulations because they may contain pathogens. Their transportation is strictly controlled and compliance with transportation regulations is a legal and mandatory requirement. This ensures that all such packages and their contents arrive at their destination in good condition without endangering the environment or anyone who comes into contact with them during their journey.
