Where we are located

Samples can be sent to or dropped off at:

IdentifyUS LLC
320 Needham Street, Suite 200
Newton, MA 02464

You can drop off specimen samples at the lab, however, we are unable to offer walk-in consultation assistance as this is restricted, private lab space. If you make a drop off, be sure to mark your package clearly with: c/o IdentifyUS, LLC  Suite 200. That will help the receptionists direct your package to our attention.

Please read and abide by these critical requirements! Specimens must be packaged carefully, as follows:

  • If dry, the specimen should be secured within a break-resistant vial (such as a pill bottle), or a closed zipper lock bag.
  • If in liquid (such as rubbing alcohol), include only enough alcohol necessary to cover the specimen and ensure the contents are secure within a break-resistant and leak-proof vial or small bottle. Wrap this container with clean paper toweling, and package all of this within a closed zipper lock bag.
  • Package the vial, padding and bag within an envelope. Use a padded envelope or small box if needed for extra protection.
  • Include a completed specimen evaluation form or other authorization form with your specimen.
  • The outside of the envelope or box must be marked: IdentifyUS
  • Send the sealed package to the address shown above.
