Transportation & Specialty Shipping Services
Tobin Scientific is the nation’s only fully integrated, single-source provider of life science laboratory relocation and frozen biological and cryogenic transportation. With four decades of experience in innovating the way life science moves, we offer the unparalleled expertise, education and guidance required to protect the life’s work of preeminent researchers, and to ensure the investments in the future made by leading life science organizations.
We work closely with principal researchers, environmental health and safety officers, lab managers, and operations teams to develop and enhance projects ranging from full laboratory relocations, frozen biological transport, contingency plans, risk management and emergency response.
Sample integrity, safety, and regulatory compliance, combined with the best practices of national transportation, are the cornerstones of our customer-centric approach to service, allowing us to assume full liability for the transport of both infectious and non-infectious 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 fleet of custom redundant generator vehicles and validated trailers with calibrated temperature monitoring systems and real time, live readings at -196 °C through 60 °F. The custom refrigerated trailer units are outfitted with electrical plugs for 110v – 220v freezers and refrigerators, and are equipped with onboard redundant generators to ensure continuity.
In an industry where one mistake could have catastrophic impacts on priceless research, Tobin Scientific offers the only trained and certified moving team in the country, operating under the strict guidelines set forth in our Department of Transportation issued Special Permits. Team members are trained and tested in compliance with 49 CFR §172.704 for the transportation of hazardous materials by surface. We rely exclusively on our highly trained, full-time employees who are unified in purpose, to ensure complete chain of custody, continuity and flawless execution. The team is on-call 24/7 from the first meeting through the final phase of your project.
Our onsite customized trailer units provide a mobile repository option for any contingency, ranging from outages, inclement weather or the need for additional capacity. Our 24/7 emergency response team is available to load and relocate these units.
Executive teams from the most reputable life science companies and research institutes nationwide trust and depend upon us as a critical partner, based on our experience, equipment, training, personnel and command of transportation logistics. As stewards of the science we are handling, we vow to protect the samples and equipment in our custody, until they are safely relocated to their next destination.
