Sample Transport

Cold Chain Sample

We Know Cold™

The team at SciSafe® has thorough knowledge of moving some of the world’s most valued research around the globe. 

Our experts will discuss with you what requirements you have for your samples, and they will also provide their recommendations for the best cold chain delivery system. In the past 12 years, we have picked up and received over 10,000 shipments varying in size from 1 box, multiple freezer (-80°C) shipments, and the relocation of over 14,000,000 client samples with both our own vehicles as well as working with shipping partners across the United States.

Nationwide Lab Relocation

Wherever you are in the country, we can move your freezers to one of our 7 US facilities. We will transport -196°C to -20°C. We have our own fleet of refrigerated and ultra-low temperature (ULT) truck trailers to manage cold chain movements for customers’ biologic materials. These trucks are an ideal solution for any biologic product movement requiring ULT storage without added need for dry ice. Each truck runs on generator power with two cooling systems.

The fleet can also handle up to ten plugged in, powered, and running upright ULT freezers at a time, expanding supported temperatures to as low as -86˚C with equipment to track location and trailer temperatures, in real time. 

The controlled temperature trailers can also transport liquid nitrogen storage freezers containing biologic materials stored at -150˚C and colder.

Initial Sample Transport

When you become our customer, we save you time and money by moving your first set of samples to one of our seven U.S. storage facilities. (2 in Boston, MA; 4 in Cranbury, NJ; and 1 in Utah).

Scheduled sample pick-ups and deliveries

We often offer scheduled daily pickups and deliveries to and from the bench for several of our clients in key metro areas.  This is generally included as part of your monthly service at no additional charge.

Dry Shippers

When you need to move cryogenic materials, a palletized dry shipper provides large sample capacity and is easily moved with a forklift. We are now leasing dry shippers to any client monthly. You can now have peace of mind when transporting your temperature-controlled items.
