Courier Routes

Anatek Labs, Inc. makes weekly courier runs to pick up samples from some of our rural customers.  The routes cover both the Idaho panhandle and central Idaho (from Grangeville to Moscow).
  • Courier routes are employee- and weather-dependent.  Drop-off locations will be notified the day before or the morning of if a route is cancelled for that week.
  • We recommend that samples be dropped off in a cooler or insulated box or bag.  Our couriers will carry coolers to transport samples.
  • You do not have to wait for the samples to be picked up; just be certain that they are at the drop-off location by the times listed below.
  • Please fill out all Chain of Custody (COC) documentation, because drop-off location employees will not provide documentation for Anatek Labs, Inc. chains of custody.
  • Please attach payment to the chain of custody unless a credit account has been established, or other arrangements have been made in advance.

For many years, Anatek Labs, Inc. has provided these courier routes free of charge.  Due to the high cost of labor and gasoline, we can no longer absorb these costs.

As of January 2023, we will charge $20 for each courier pickup.  If you have any questions, please call us at 208-883-2839.
