Each case is very individual. It needs to be investigated and treated individually, depending on the situation. Medical examination of the body, analysis, screening, and only then does the conversation go about donation. Now donor materials are transported in the highest degree of safety, you can learn more about this here https://arkcryo.com/shipping-services/ , in the end you don’t even have to worry about their quality.
