ARK.CRYO provides three main shipping methods for our clients’ cryopreserved IVF material.
The main delivery method that we use is air transportation. This method guarantees a 100% transport survival rate when we are shipping frozen donor eggs. Our couriers transport the IVF materials personally in the airplane cabin, avoiding exposure to any X-rays.
In today’s world, aviation rules are stricter than ever. These safety rules mean that cryomaterials cannot be stored directly in liquid nitrogen for air travel ( the container is filled with nitrogen vapors). In order to transport cryomaterials via air, we utilise double-walled cryocontainers that are made by world-renowned manufacturer Taylor-Wharton. These containers are made with state of the art materials filled with liquid nitrogen, and then regulated with advanced timing methods. The containers are never put in the hold of the plane. Our couriers hand-carry them, and they are always under constant supervision.
Some medical cryoshipment companies use companies such as FedEx or DHL for intercontinental cargo deliveries. This is a big mistake as there is always a danger that X-rays will be used when crossing borders, and this may result in genetic mutation of biological material and a low survival rate after thawing. In light of these facts, it is always a good idea to find out the survival rate guaranteed by the courier service company you are considering using, and learn about the type of transportation it uses.
At ARK.CRYO we always send a medical courier with all shipments in order to ensure safe door-to-door transportation of human samples in a dry shipper. Our IVF couriers accompany the dry shipper container during the entire trip, and they make sure that no X-rays are ever used during screening procedures.
To get the delivery cost, please provide us with information about your cryoshipment including cells type, destination point and shipment date.
We will contact you with details and cryoshipping price within 24 hours.
