Frozen Biological Transport

We assume liability for the transport of both infectious and noninfectious biological substances. Our team uses industry-leading cold chain technologies to mitigate risk by limiting exposure to ambient temperatures.

Tobin Scientific has designed and built a set of custom vehicles including redundant generator temperature-controlled trailers and validated temperature-controlled trailers. The redundant generator temperature-controlled trailer units are outfitted with 110v – 220v electrical plugs for freezers and refrigerators to ensure continuity. We provide IQ/OQ cGMP/cGLP calibrated temperature monitoring systems and real-time, live readings at -196°C through 60°C. We also have a fleet of validated trailers for the transport or storage of 2°C to 8°C and -20°C product.
