Use that Bubble Wrap, Send Your Studies to Us for Safe Storage

Storing study materials adds extensive overhead costs to any facility with blocks, slides, tissue, and more.

All laboratories, clinics, government agencies, and drug discovery organizations know this; they constantly seek different ways to cut down on storage and shipping costs.

One surefire way to save money on in-house laboratory material storage is to wrap them in bubble wrap and send them to a professional facility with proper security, storage, and handling practices. HSRL Archives is happy to store your ambient, frozen, and refrigerated study materials. By using proper care to securely send your materials to HSRL Archives, you ensure that your materials will arrive safely and go straight into proper storage. 

How Can We Help?
HSRL Archives prides itself on safe and dependable storage of slides, blocks, wet tissue, samples, and data. All of our frozen, refrigerated, and ambient facilities adhere to GLP (Good Laboratory Practices), ensuring government-regulated specimen storage for whatever you send our way. Our freezers and refrigerators are heavily monitored and hold to specific temperatures for whatever you may need to store with us. With state-of-the-art storage and security options, HSRL Archives ensures your study remains in tact from beginning to end.

Why Will You Save Money on Archiving?
Storing laboratory materials gets expensive for clinics, labs, and other medical or research facilities around the country. With properly trained technicians and transportation professionals, storage facilities provide valuable cost-saving options. When you choose to store your materials at a professional facility, you are choosing high-end security in addition to proper storage options. We protect the critical data and samples stored at our facility with environmentally friendly fire suppression systems that would cost any individual lab a small fortune by comparison. In addition to fire damage protection, professional storage facilities provide around the clock burglary security and video surveillance. Motion and sound detectors, secure building access, and infrared security systems to keep your materials secure.

What is the Risk of Sending Laboratory Materials?
As anyone knows, mailing anything across the country comes with its own set of potential problems. Sending sensitive slides, blocks, tissues, and data is equally, if not more risky than sending the average package. Any sensitive biological material is subject to strict federal and state guidelines. Understandably, shipments of any sample or specimen are at risk not only to personnel transporting it, but also at risk of contamination itself. No laboratory wants to send a specimen in the mail only for it to arrive in a contaminated state. Packing and shipping come with their own set of rules and guidelines, which could easily be missed or forgotten by anyone but trained professionals.
