Dry Shippers are an alternative to using Dry Ice, when you need a stable cold environment to ship your sample in. Dry Shippers can be rented directly from FedEx and shipped as a non-hazardous cooling option. Regulated biological hazards may still not be allowed entry into China. Check with your Chinese collaborator for details.
