Cryoport Inc (OTCBB: CYRX) is expanding its services to Clinical Reference Laboratory (CRL) for transportation of high-value test samples and specimens. CRL is a provider of testing services for clinical trials, molecular diagnostics, and toxicology.

“The expansion of our relationship with Cryoport demonstrates CRL’s commitment to using advanced logistics technology to meet client-specific shipping requirements,” said John Byerley, CRL’s vice-president of clinical trials operations.

CRL is using Cryoport’s dry vapor liquid nitrogen shipping system to transport patient samples for a major clinical trial being conducted in four European nations. The Cryoport web-based logistics management portal is being used to book, track, and document all shipments for this study.

A privately held reference laboratory, CRL offers testing services for clinical trials, corporate wellness programs, molecular diagnostics, insurance, and toxicology, from its state-of-the-art facility in Lenexa KS. One of the largest single-site laboratories in the nation with more than 500 employees, CRL has a 192,000-plus-square-foot “campus” and performs millions of samples annually for hundreds of clients. The laboratory processes samples 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Cryoport provides frozen shipping logistics services through the combination of purpose-built proprietary technologies and total turnkey management of the entire process. The Cryoport Express liquid nitrogen dry vapor shipper is validated to maintain a constant –150° C temperature for a 10-plus-day dynamic shipment duration. Its Cryoportal Logistics Management Platform manages the entire shipment process, including initial order, document preparation, customs clearance, courier management, shipment tracking, issue resolution, and delivery. The total turnkey service management approach offers reliability, cost effectiveness, and convenience, while the use of recyclable and reusable components provides a “green” and environmentally friendly solution.
