Good science depends on good samples. Our priority is to prevent temperature cycling that can degrade the integrity of valuable biological material used for research.

Client needs vary. So it's key for a reliable partner to understand the complete relocation process. This way, samples arrive on time and without temperature variance. Azenta Life Sciences highly specialized cold-chain logistics and relocation team works with each client to develop a comprehensive, customized plan.
