Transportation of Biomedical Substances

Transportation of biomedical substances or diagnostic specimens is regulated for all modes of transport. Specific classification and packaging requirements must be met. These standards are accepted and enforced worldwide in order to prevent the spread of diseases.

We offer three levels of training in order to meet specific industry needs. All these programs include air (FedEx) and ground transport. These courses can also used as a refresher program which is required every 24 months for air and 36 months for ground.
