If screw caps are used, they must be secured by tape, paraffin sealing tape, manufactured locking closure, or similar methods. The completed package must be able to survive a drop test of 35 ft. A package containing category A substances that will be sent by cargo aircraft must be limited to no more than 4L or 4 kg. This excludes ice, dry ice, or liquid nitrogen, if any of these are used as refrigerants.If the package will be sent on a passenger aircraft, the quantity cannot exceed 50 mL or 50 gm. If a category A specimen exceeds 50 mL or 50 gm, it must be labeled as "Cargo aircraft only." Category A substances cannot be mailed via the United States Postal Service (USPS) or sent via United Parcel Service (UPS).
