Safety & Security

Andron’s concern for safety & security is THE  top-most issue considered at all stages of their charged task. The people at Andron therefore invest their utmost efforts to ensure that the entire transfer process – from initial planning through delivery – of biological specimens be carried out safely, securely, smoothly and successfully. Andron’s staff are confident  that their employment of the highest standards serves best the client’s purposes as well as their peace of mind.

DEWARs – LN2 Shippers

Transporting frozen biological matter in the scientifically customary deep freeze state is a task that is extremely sensitive to environmental and other conditions. For example, unchecked exposure of a specimen to the wrong temperatures can result in damaging specimen quality – and even its total destruction – for future use.

An important component of our overall safety measures are the shipping equipment assigned for transferring  your specific shipment’s needs. These specialized shippers, referred to as DEWARs, are filled with Liquid Nitrogen (LN2).  LN2 gets absorbed into the container’s walls which causes the container’s  temperature to reach the ideal freezing condition of  -196c.

Our equipment is therefore inspected for maximum effectiveness and durability prior to each shipping endeavor. Integral inspection includes container hardware and checking the effects of the LN2 within the container to ensure  temperature continues to remain at ideal level  for as many as 7-14 days beyond anticipated time of delivery at destination.

Andron offers its clients an optional temperature check device that continuously collects and transcribes the data to memory for the duration of the specimen’s transit. This high  precision custom device’s info is then translated into a readable graph for later viewing by Andron’s clients. Client access to this data is made available either by logging into  Andron’s website with your unique ID and a provided password by your Andron rep.

Or, by request to your Andron rep for an emailed file copy of the data graph.
