Radioisotope Package Delivery Service

Read about free radioisotope package delivery service for qualifying UC San Diego laboratories.


To qualify for delivery service, laboratories must have:

  • An employee authorized on the lab's Radioisotope Use Authorization (RUA) present to sign for the package delivery
  • A posted Radioactive Materials Area to store the material
  • A posted refrigerator or freezer in a designated Radioactive Materials Area to receive refrigerated or frozen isotopes, if applicable

Request service

Note: PIs can authorize delivery of radioisotope packages to their qualifying laboratory without a receipt signature.

  • To request this option, check the "Release of Responsibility" box at the bottom of the Radioactive Materials Package Delivery Request form.
  • Delivery without a signature is not available for packages marked Radioactive Material Security.

Delivery schedule

Deliveries are Monday – Friday, 2–4 p.m. If delivery is not possible on the first attempt, a second, final delivery attempt will be made the next working day.

Undelivered packages will be returned to the EH&S Services Lab where they will be available for pick up.
