Archiva is proud to partner with Cryoport to provide a seamless flow of frozen samples. The state-of-the-art Cryoport solution is a cost-effective, end-to-end solution for shipping frozen biological materials. The system combines an innovative pre-packaged LN2-vapor dry shipper with web-based Cryoportal™ ordering technology and international logistics management to track and monitor the integrity of frozen shipments worldwide.
The Cryoport System provides significant benefits and overall cost-savings versus a dry ice shipper:
- Cryoport Express® Shipper holding time is 10+ days compared to two to three days with dry ice systems, minimizing sample and data loss risk due to unexpected custom holds, routing errors, or weather delays.
- Unlike LN2, which evaporates harmlessly, dry ice evaporates as CO2 –potentially contributing to global warming. Shippers are returned to Cryoport for recycling, eliminating the need to send shipping materials and dry ice to landfills.
- The Cryoport LN2 vapor dry shippers are IATA-classified as non-hazardous and require no special dangerous goods labeling or handling as with dry ice which can be refused as cargo by airlines. In addition, an increasing number of countries simply refuse to allow dry ice shipments into or within their borders.
