The critical nature of these samples requires full regulatory knowledge under an umbrella of exact environmental conditions for the transfer. Cryoport has the best-in-class logistics solutions and possesses the expertise in handling to safely and successfully relocate cryogenically frozen samples without error.
Jerrell Shelton, Cryoport’s CEO, stated, “We are uniquely suited to support the wholesale movement of critical laboratory samples that require strict conditions from one location to another in a controlled manner. The fact that institutions and clinics trust their entire life’s work to our care is a testament to our validated cryogenic logistics solutions paired with our experience and knowledge in supporting such relocations. We look forward to further collaboration with leading research centers and other organizations in their relocation over the coming months.”
