Transportation of biological samples
Features of biosample transportation
Often the laboratory where the materials are analyzed and the sender (individual or organization that represents the interests of the patient) is located in different countries. Everyone may be faced with a situation where it is necessary to quickly deliver biological material from one point of the planet to another. The well-being of patients and the success of scientific research depend on timely, prompt and careful delivery of such cargo.
Among the customers of these services are pharmaceutical companies, medical institutions, medical centers, laboratories and other organizations that are in contact with the pharmaceutical business. The service is also available to individuals.
For the delivery of goods that require strict control throughout the route, we can offer transportation in the following temperature conditions: + 2 ... + 30C; + 15 ... + 25С; + 2 ... + 8С; -15… -25C; -70 C (dry ice); -150 ... -196C (liquid nitrogen).
Transportation of biomaterials is carried out in special certified containers in which the optimum temperature is maintained. Properly prepared thermal container is able to maintain the temperature within the specified limits up to 96 hours. Considering that the flight to any part of the planet does not take more than 24 hours, the client can be sure that the biological material entrusted to us will be safely delivered. If necessary, our company is ready to repackage cold pack at transit points (at customs, temporary storage warehouse , representative offices and agent warehouses), which will increase the delivery time and preserve the transported material.
The list of biomaterials accepted for transportation
The need to transport biological material often arises in the following cases: in the framework of the clinical trials of drugs, for genetic research, finding a suitable donor, complex diagnostics and analyzes. In general, it is possible to divide the materials transmitted for transportation into several groups:
blood, serum, plasma, cellular components;
biological samples (tissue sections);
Both uninfected and infected samples are accepted for shipment. Since this kind of cargo is classified as hazardous, working with them requires special training. Employees of the company have all the necessary skills in this area, they undergo compulsory preparation, training and testing of knowledge.
Air transportation of biomaterials with maintaining temperature conditions:
Our company offers services for the transportation of goods in both inland and international traffics.
Years of experience with major airline companies, as well as knowledge of the specifics of working with cargo at the airport, allow us to reduce the processing time of your cargo and choose the best route for delivery.
Auto transportation of biological samples
Our company specializes in the transportation of various cargoes that require compliance with certain temperature regimes, such as medical preparations, biological samples, various samples, etc. Often, only vehicles can be used to send samples over short distances. In this case, to comply with the temperature regime during the transportation of goods, we use cars specially equipped with refrigerating and heating installations. For transportation in the winter period, the cargo compartments of our cars are equipped with heating systems to maintain the above-zero temperature, or cooling systems to lower the temperature in the summer. All cars are equipped with thermal recorders and undergo regular technical control.
