The Biocair office I work with has provided terrific service. The staff are helpful and always responsive to my questions and requests. This trial involved multiple international sites both inside and outside the EU, as well as shipping multiple sample types that had to be sorted at the clinical sites. The shipments were carried out quickly and without any issues.

Case studyBringing innovation to the clinical trial supply chain
Increasingly complex and global clinical trials have led drug developers to collaborate with logistics experts to manage their clinical trials supply chain.
Can Biocair arrange collection of blood samples from international clinics participating in our study, and then return them to our facility in a different country?
Yes, Biocair can arrange collection of blood samples and other materials from clinical sites around the world, including supplying the PI650 inner bags for the samples, labelled outer packaging and dry ice.
How can Biocair support me with customs clearance for an upcoming clinical trial?
The first step towards ensuring a smooth customs clearance is to ensure that all required documentation/licensing is included when the material is shipped.
Biocair staff are experienced in ensuring that all documentation is prepared in a manner that accurately describes the material being shipped, while also ensuring that any additional required elements (HTS codes, FDA codes, clinical trial authorization documentation, etc) are also included.
What paperwork and licenses may be required for a clinical trial? How can Biocair support?
The paperwork and licences required depends on a number of factors, including:
• Where is the clinical trial due to be conducted? • What transport route is required? • What type of material (s) is involved?
Wherever legally possible, Biocair will provide the required documentation. This includes airwaybills, NES declarations and dangerous goods certificates. All labelling for transport is also provided.
