In addition to the improved location and accessibility of our new facility, the NHVDL offers convenient after hours specimen drop off. These secure specimen vaults are available 24/7 in a climate controlled vestibule at our front entrance. The two large vaults are separated for fixed specimens (containing formalin) and fresh specimens. Submission forms, instructions and additional packaging materials are also available for your convenience. While these vaults are checked daily and on weekends, if you arrive during normal business hours we prefer to receive your samples in person at the receiving counter. Necropsy cases must be submitted in person during normal business hours only.
