Flexible same day delivery

The patient sample collection is mainly conducted on mobile screening units, which are based in community-based car parks around the city of Leeds.  The location changes monthly, with CitySprint providing same day collection/deliveries.

Patient samples are collected from the mobile unit and delivered to a local hospital where they are processed and stored. Vehicles require temperature-controlled containers for sample transportation with a temperature ranging from 2°C to 8 °C.  

“The study has delivered fantastic recruitment figures and working with you has helped with this valuable clinical research study. We have developed a nice relationship and the courier shipments have played a vital part of our study delivery”
Claire Eckert, Operations Director, Leeds Diagnosis and Screening Unit (LDSU) LIHS, University of Leeds.
