Abstract (en)

A box blank (10) that can be folded in order to be assembled into a complete box for the shipment of materials. The blank has indicia (24,26) printed on each of two opposite sides that identify the material to be contained within the completed, assembled box. Each indicia relates to a different material such that the box can be assembled in one orientation to have one set of indicia end up on the exterior surface or assembled in a different orientation to have the other set of indicia end up on the exterior surface. In this manner, the same box blank can be used for different materials to be shipped within the completed box. In the exemplary embodiment, the different materials relate to (a) diagnostic or clinical specimens and (b) exempt human or animal specimens.
