Armstrong Scientific Transport’s approach to relocations is extremely comprehensive and rigorous. We rely on a systematic set of procedures and protocols to ensure the safety of all laboratory contents and, of course, the highest of operational standards.

It is this extensive approach that sets us apart from the rest.

We use a 3-part packing system to ensure the safety and security of all specimens throughout the transportation process. This includes a primary and secondary leak-proof container as well as rigid outer packing.

Our transportation truck/trailer is able to accommodate different temperature/power needs, depending upon the contents of the laboratory.

These needs will be discussed during our pre-move survey, which will be used to determine the scope of your lab move.

Our trailer is also climate controlled and has an internal security system. It is also able to monitor whether all equipment is plugged in throughout the transportation process, which helps ensure all specimens and other biological material throughout the transportation process.

Armstrong Scientific Transport upholds a rigorous lab relocation management system wherein all equipment is always monitored by a crew member throughout the transportation process. Load checks are also performed every 4 hours and verified by an electronic access system.
