Lab Relocation

Tobin Scientific is known industry wide as the vanguard of multi-redundant GDP and QMS systems for care, custody and control in biotransport and storage. Specifically for lab relocation, we have designed, built and hold a patent in the design of custom, redundant generator temperature-controlled trailers. Each mobile biorepository trailer is IQ / OQ Validated and cGMP / cGLP Compliant. Coupled with our proprietary temperature monitoring, real time reporting, and multiple layers of redundant power backup, you can rest assured that your samples are cared for 100% while in our custody.

All Tobin Scientific drivers who handle your lab relocation are tenured professionals exhaustively trained in the unique idiosyncrasies of an enormous variety of lab equipment, in order for them to triage any customer equipment failures in the field. Our team is ready for and frequently executes point-to-point lab relocations from various points of origin within the United States. We are coast-to-coast in as little as 50 hours with 24/7 live-manned transport thanks to our two-man drive teams and alarmed sleeper cabs.
