Non EU based academic users, and all industrial users can also arrange their shipment with DHL in ISPyB but must supply their own DHL account number. Alternatively, they can arrange their own courier for incoming and outgoing shipments.
All users must specify full details of their shipment in ISPyB before shipping. This is neccesary to confirm safety of samples being shipped to Diamond.
