All packages, including hazardous materials, are delivered directly to their final destination. UPS and FedEx will deliver directly to the lab if an exact room number is listed on the label. 

For questions on shipping and receiving, please contact the MBS Front Desk.


FedEx packing labels are located in the MBS Office. You will need to include your account number on the packing label in the field "Your Internal Billing Reference" (this applies to both US and International Airbills). To schedule a FedEx pickup, call 1-800-463-3339. For the MBS FedEx account number, please contact the MBS Office.

If you require same-day pickup after 2 p.m., you will need to take your item(s) to a FedEx store to be shipped. Be advised, FedEx stores cannot accept dry ice packages, so plan accordingly.
