Enter date aircraft departs on transit mission.
Supporting laboratory (while unit is in transit status) will complete the remainder of
the transit record.
When the customer returns to home base, records of analysis done at intermediate
locations must be delivered to the regular supporting laboratory. If the customer departs prior to receipt of the
completed transit record, the intermediate laboratory will forward the completed transit record to the regular
3-7. Preparation for Delivery.
a. Attach the completed DD Form 2026 to the sample bottle or wrap the completed form around the
sample bottle and insert both into the mailing envelope.
If the sample is a special sample, it must be prominently marked in red (such as red
borders), both on the form and on the outside of the mailing container to alert the
laboratory to the need for immediate processing.
b. Forward the sample package to the supporting laboratory by established channels using the most
expeditious means. Criticality of the sample should govern the delivery method, i.e., mail, hand delivery, etc. It
should be noted that 4-ounce samples require additional packaging either individually or in groups to be
forwarded by mail.
