A human lab tissue or diagnostic specimen is any human material including secreta, excreta, tissue, blood and its components, and any other tissue fluids. These samples or tissues may require transportation for investigation, diagnostic or storage purposes.
Dry shipping is the use of solid (dry ice), or formaldehyde or carbon dioxide. Dry shipping is the use therefore of non-liquid preservation substances in the transport vials or chambers. Transporting human tissues using Cryosend has gained popularity in the last few years. And for good reasons for that matter. These are the top reasons to transport human lab tissues using dry shipping.
Comply with Federal and Other National and International Regulations
Some of these lab tissues have pathogens which can be easily transmitted from one individual to another either directly or indirectly and for which preventive and treatment measures are not readily available. The accepted nationally and internationally recognized best practices is that these specimens must be transported using dry shipping.
Readily available dry shipping materials
Solid (dry) ice is readily available, in either in retail centers or homes. Carbon dioxide is also easily accessible. The availability of these two main dry shipping substances makes it an ideal human tissue transportation mode.
Not easily contaminated
Unlike wet shipping where any pathogens in the human tissues can be easily absorbed by the substances used when wet shipping, dry shipping has zero secondary contamination, making it the perfect safe transport especially of human tissue with highly communicable pathogens.
Dry shipping is the most affordable human lab tissues transportation services. With it, the degree of losses associated with damages is significantly reduced. This makes it not only an affordable means but a reliable one.
Safe from environmental influences
Wet shipping is prone to compromise from the surrounding environment like sub-zero or high temperatures. The substances that are used in wet shipping must be maintained within acceptable temperature, humidity, and oxygen levels. Dry shipping is not prone to these influences and will be functional at sub-zero temperature, in high or low-pressure chambers, at high or ground level attitude or any other natural or designed environment.
Ready to transport
Dry shipping does not require a custom made transport vehicle unless with the requisite safety measures needed in such transportation vehicles.
