Case Study: A Full Lab Relocation for the University of Ottawa
Client: University of Ottawa
Origin: Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research
Timeline: October 2023
The University of Ottawa recently faced a significant challenge: relocating an entire laboratory from the Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research. This task required more than just moving items from point A to B; it demanded precision, expertise, and a deep understanding of the complexities involved in laboratory relocation. Armstrong Scientific, a leader in laboratory moving services, was up to the task.
The Task at Hand: A Full Lab Relocation
The relocation involved a comprehensive transfer of laboratory equipment, chemicals, liquid nitrogen, and freezers containing critical specimens. As experienced lab movers, Armstrong Scientific was tasked with ensuring the safe and efficient transport of these sensitive materials, a responsibility we took with utmost seriousness.
Chemicals: A Specialized Approach
Our specialized chemical transport specialists were brought in to handle the chemicals. They meticulously segregated and packed all chemicals according to their UN numbers and hazard classes, strictly adhering to Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) guidelines. This careful process ensured that the chemicals were transported safely and compliantly, with the shipment delivered on the same day.
Liquid Nitrogen: Precision Handling
Handling liquid nitrogen for the University of Ottawa's lab relocation required the specialized skills of our LN2 specialists. This critical part of the relocation process not only involved our white glove service for the safe and secure transport of these sensitive materials but also showcased our commitment to comprehensive and expedient lab relocation services. Additionally, we featured our same-day, direct drive service for this task. The customer's LN2 dewar was collected and delivered on the very same day, minimizing any risk of compromise and ensuring the integrity of the materials throughout the transit.
Specimen Transport: Maintaining Integrity
The most critical aspect of this relocation was transporting specimens that needed to be kept at -80°C and -20°C. The challenge was that the customer was not shipping their current refrigeration units. Our lab relocation specialists provided a solution by supplying our own -80°C freezer as a loaner and collecting a freezer from the University of Ottawa. This service ensured that the specimens were maintained at ideal temperatures throughout the journey.
