We use double-walled cryo containers made by the leading world manufacturer Taylor-Wharton for the transport. The cryo container is filled with liquid nitrogen in advance to let it absorb the inner material. Once the container has been prepared, it can be transported either by air or on the road.
The On-Road transport is a quick way of transporting samples on short and middle distances. The transportation container can be completely filled with liquid nitrogen which provides an absolute stable temperature of -196 °C, convenient especially for the transport of vitrified samples.
This kind of transport is recommended for long distances. Due to the aviation safety rules, samples are transported in nitrogen vapours only, not directly in liquid nitrogen. The container is not transported in the luggage compartment, but directly on board under our continuous supervision.
We are a sister company of the leading reproductive medicine clinic REPROFIT International. Being the worldwide recognized experts in the field of reproductive medicine, we understand the demands on the transport of samples, know the risks which can endanger the quality of human cells, and are able to prevent them.
TRANSPORT UNDER SUPERVISION
One of the biggest risks with reproductive cells involves their exposure to X-ray radiation or unauthorized handling while opening the container. Therefore the container is never handed to any third party. Your samples are accompanied by our supervisor throughout the whole period of time, on-road and air transport. The supervisor ensures that no undesired situation occurs.
As we know the processes on the side of medical facilities, we can provide assistance above the framework of standard services. Should the preparation come to a standstill, we are able to offer a suitable solution for both shipping and receiving institutions to speed up communication and thus, the whole preparation process.
We are in joint contact with the Health Ministries of European countries where we carry out transport. We have of a list of local emergency contacts and emergency plans ready to be used, so we can respond without delay, to any sort of complication that may occur during the transport (including customs declartion, accidents, etc.).
