How Avantor's biorepository services work

When you decide to store your business-critical assets with Avantor®, we take thorough measures to help ensure your irreplaceable biospecimens are secure.

Safe transportation to storage facility

We coordinate cold chain logistics to transport your assets according to their specific requirements. From the moment we take custody of your samples, we carefully inspect and index them. We track and trace every movement in real time, from receipt to processing.

Qualified and expert monitored storage

Your assets are stored in their ideal conditions in our qualified, purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities that adhere to the strictest standards. Our team is trained to monitor your assets expertly, and our Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) uphold extensive quality-control measures to help ensure regulatory compliance.

At each of our global storage facilities, we implement layers of backups and redundancies to ensure all assets are securely stored, even in a power failure or more severe disruption and our GLP and IATA-trained experts are dedicated to meeting your specific needs.

Safe return of your irreplaceable assets

When you are ready to retrieve your assets, experts at Avantor once again coordinate cold chain logistics to meet your assets’ specific requirements. We continue to monitor, track, and trace assets in real-time.

Our consistency of care results in the safe return of your biorepository assets. Our expert team has been entrusted with the care of more than 100 million samples for more than 40 years, and we have never failed to return a single sample.
