BSPL Guidelines for Liquid Sample Processing:

Hours of operation (all campuses):

  • Monday through Friday, 8am – 4pm (excluding UCSF campus holidays). Last samples must be received by 2pm. 
  • Contact Annie Higa for drop-off cutoff times for same-day shipping and complex processing. 
  • If same-day shipment samples are received past the cutoff time, samples will be shipped the next business day. Ambient samples are generally more time sensitive and require same-day shipment. 
  • If your protocol has samples that will be collected past the same-day processing cut off time, please consult with your PI and/or sponsor for next steps. We can store samples overnight at ambient and refrigerated (4C) temperatures for processing the next day, but only with PI and/or sponsor approval.
