Dear all,

Due to the presence of residual liquid nitrogen in dry shippers
'steaming' out of a tipped-over dewar on a Fedex dock, we (PX-ers in
the ALS) have been placed under some scrutiny with regards to
dry-shipping dewars. In particular, I am interested in how people
empty their dewars/pucks/vials and prepare them for dry-shipment and
how they and/or their shipping department checks if the dewars are
empty indeed.
