FAQs

FAQ icon

What temperatures ranges can Biocair support?

We provide validated and pre-conditioned packaging to suit the following temperature ranges:

• +15 to +25.C (Controlled Ambient)
• +2 to +8.C (Refrigerated)
• -15 to -25.C (Frozen)
• -60 to -80.C (Deep Frozen)
• Under -150.C (Cryo Frozen)

My materials require liquid nitrogen for transport – do you supply the dewars?

Yes. We operate a global network of liquid nitrogen shipping stations.

Our pre-filled liquid nitrogen dewars (also known as dry shippers) are rigid, lightweight and do not require a pallet for transport – they can be hand carried throughout hospital and clinical environments.

How long will Biocair’s dry ice boxes last?

The number of days a Biocair dry ice box will last depends on the size of the box we use and the quantity of dry ice added. We only use boxes which will hold sufficient quantity of dry ice for the transit involved.

A smaller dry ice box with 8-10 kgs is appropriate for domestic and short-haul (2-3 days max) transits.

For long-haul shipments, we will use a large system with minimum 15-20 kgs of dry ice.

Do you offer GPS and temperature monitors? Can we download the information ourselves?

Of course. You will be able to view and download all the data once the shipment has been received.

We also offer a ‘live’ monitoring functionality, allowing you to see the data in real time during transit.
