Cryoshipping Containers

You simply cannot have a successful cyroshipment without the correct containers. The only way to transport cryopreserved IVF samples is to use medical containers that are called dewars, or dry shippers. These containers fit into the rules mandates by the EU-Tissue Directives 2004/23/EC, 2006/1EC and 2006/86/EC.

The dewars used for cryoshipment have been specifically designed in order to transport biological samples at the correct temperature.

Our couriers transport the dewars very carefully – they are only ever carried in a vertical position. Our team also ensures that the dewar will never been exposed to X-rays (known to cause degenerative changes to the gametes or embryos; can even cause genetic mutations and changes in DNA).

ARKCryo only uses containers that comply with IATA regulation, and they include a built-in temperature to ensure that -196 C is maintained during the entire transportation process.

We use the following models of dewars (dry shippers):
