In general


  • Vetscope Pathologie aims for a climate-friendly logistics and thus recommends shipping your samples by the Swiss postal service

  • Prepaid shipping envelopes can be ordered here

  • Please take care of a safe sample shipping: pack your samples break- and leakage-proof and label your goods correctly as «tiermedizinisch freigestellte Probe» (information in German)

  • Check again before shipping that all samples are labelled adequately and that the request form contains all necessary information. A good clinical history is a major prerequisite for a pertinent pathological analysis

  • Please don't hesitate to contact Vetscope Pathology if you might have any question



  • Formalin vapours may harm cytology smears. Therefore send cytology and histopathology samples in different envelopes/parcels. They may be sent within the same envelope if airtight packaging of both is achieved


  • Particularly with warm temperatures, the carcasses should be cooled on transportation. Vetscope Pathologie recommends the use of styrofoam boxes, also in terms of leakage safety, equipped with cooling elements
