Samples and cold chain materials

Specialist relocation of vital samples and cold chain materials, using validated solutions.

aport has specialist expertise in the relocation of samples and cold chain materials.

Our extensive experience in laboratory relocation means we have strict procedures for dealing with temperature controlled materials and ensuring their temperature integrity is maintained at all times. At aport, we understand the vital importance of our clients’ ongoing research, and the potentially devastating cost and time to market implications, should the worst happen.

We provide validated temperature controlled solutions which meet GxP compliance standards and can transport your shipment anywhere in the world, even researching and providing bespoke solutions when required.

aport’s in-depth knowledge and experience in this area makes us a natural choice if your organisation is planning a laboratory relocation. We tailor all our clients’ sample and cold chain material relocations to meet exact specifications.

We regularly handle temperature controlled relocations for all ranges, including frozen, chilled and temperate, with specialist packaging systems which are validated for up to 220 hours. Our staff will bring the required specialist compliant packaging and coolants to your organisation’s premises and it will be precisely pre-conditioned to the right temperature before any samples or materials are loaded.  For worldwide sample relocations, aport uses cross-hemisphere IATA compliant packaging to account for any ambient temperature challenges.

For sensitive temperature ranges, such as 2-8C, USB data monitors are used to record temperature integrity throughout the relocation.  Validation data is available and can be presented to our clients for submission to agencies such as the FDA or EMA as required.

All our road vehicles are fitted with tracking devices so we can pinpoint the location of your materials at all times and this tracking information is provided as part of any auditing process.
