TNT Express wins BioKryo contract


17 October 2011 - TNT Express has been awarded a contract from the German biotechnology company BioKryo to handle the international transport of high value biological samples to the company’s storage facility in Sulzbach.

A branch of the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering (IBMT), BioKryo specialises in the long-time storage of bio samples, such as stem cells and tissues, using cutting edge cryotechnology (very low-temperature conservation). BioKryo keeps samples in a secure environment for future diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

To transport the samples safely, TNT will use its “Clinical Express” suite of services for the healthcare industry, including temperature-controlled packaging and dry shipper containers that keep the bio samples frozen during transportation.
