When it comes to delivering your valuable samples worldwide, Victoria is just one of the medical couriers at ARKCryo who are ready to assist you.

“As medical couriers, we provide international transportation services for biomaterials including;

Are my embryos, eggs and sperm safe whilst travelling?

Vlad, another IVF courier, shares;

“All our medical couriers are well-trained.

Our team ensure your materials aren’t exposed to x-rays, and have all documents on hand for a smooth delivery.

They know the IATA regulations, how to use the cryo shipper and monitor your sample’s temperature in real-time to ensure all necessary conditions are met.

You can be sure your precious biomaterials are safe and in the right hands.”

Cargo shipping vs hand carrying your gametes

What’s the difference between cargo shipping your gametes, and choosing a hand carry option?

Watch our short guide;

  • Cargo transportation involves traditional methods like commercial trucks, trains, or airplanes, where the containers are typically consolidated with other shipments. It’s standard practice for larger quantities and less time-sensitive deliveries.
  • Hand-carry transportation is a more personalized approach. A medical courier personally accompanies the sample container and guarantees utmost security and integrity throughout the journey.

Your preferred option is a choice that’s completely personal to you, and your cryo shipping provider should be on hand to support you in making that decision in the most informed way possible.
