Transporting Biological Materials
Biobanks are an important part of medical research. In fact, they have been integral to the advancement of health and have offered insight into many diseases.
But given that biobanks store biological samples, specialized laboratory relocation services that offer biological material transport are critical to safely preserve the integrity of such samples and the equipment that comes with them.
Armstrong Scientific Transport is a premier laboratory transportation company that specializes in a select group of industries, including biotech/biobanks.
We handle all aspects of your relocation, from planning and documenting to packing and unpacking your laboratory.
About Our Biological Material Relocation Services
Armstrong Scientific Transport is equipped to handle the transportation of biological materials.
Our approach is extremely comprehensive, highly specialized, and tailored to your needs. We understand that every biobank has a range of different requirements in terms of equipment, operational standards, timelines and so on.
Here is a brief breakdown of our comprehensive process:
Each relocation begins with a pre-move survey, which is used to determine the scope of your biobank. Notes will be taken regarding the presence of hazardous materials and other requirements (such as your power needs if the transport of biological materials will include freezers).
Armstrong Scientific Transport uses specialized packing techniques and materials depending upon the type of equipment and/or material. This could include a combination of SpeedPaks, bubble wrap and double walled boxes.
Cartons are labelled and inventoried.
At this point, proper protocols regarding the safe handling of materials will take place. This will include reading the material safety data sheets as well as the detailing of emergency procedures for emergency spills, alternate escape routes and so on.
Armstrong Scientific Transport’s transport trucks and trailers are specifically designed for the transport of biological materials. This includes the ability to transport materials while they are being cooled or heated.
Our transport trucks can also monitor whether units are plugged in so that we can preserve the integrity of all materials through the biological material transport process.
The transportation of biological materials also includes a load check every 4 hours, which will be verified by electronic access. A crew member will also always be present with every piece of equipment throughout the relocation process.
During transportation, every single piece of equipment will be attended to. Load checks are performed every 4 hours.
