With FedEx Priority Overnight and Saturday delivery, semen shipping has never been safer.
Packing is important to prevent the semen from freezing according to Dr. Janice Cain, “Add ice packs sufficient to keep the package cold for 24-48 hours. Be sure to add enough ice packs: 2 large packs at a minimum. Place the semen tube/baggy either into a styrofoam insulated small box or protect semen tube from touching the ice packs by sufficient packing material. This will keep the semen from freezing.”
