Life sciences involve the study of living organisms and investigate the structure of living things from molecules to entire ecosystems. Life sciences are a field of study that include anatomy, biology, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, plant biology, physiology and more. This growing field is making ground breaking advancements in the study of infectious diseases, microbiology, plant science, genetics, neurobiology and more. With studies covering such a wide range of important areas, a significant amount of shipping is involved. From patients in medical facilities to the laboratory to clinical trial sites or pharmaceutical manufacturers, reliable shipping is an integral part of the life sciences. Life Science Leader makes note of the many potential hazards when shipping, “Even for shipments within the continental United States, delivery time can be much longer than originally anticipated. Real-life examples include: planes grounded by storms or mechanical issues, shipments bumped from overscheduled flights, delivery to incorrect locations, or shipments unpacked by people not directly involved in the study. In the last case, product may not be placed into appropriate storage conditions immediately, and temperature monitors may be handled incorrectly.” Shipping for the life sciences field often involves temperature sensitive materials. These materials could become damaged or destroyed if exposed to temperatures outside of the desired range.

Additional Life Science Incubator Benefits

An accurate and reliable life science incubator should be used to protect materials. The MicroQ iQ shipping device is a temperature sensitive shipping device that is capable of active heating and cooling. Should ambient conditions experience temperature changes or changes in humidity, the iQ shipping device will adapt to ensure the desired temperature is maintained at all times. It is also lightweight and durable, capable of withstanding any rough handling during transport. When making frequent shipments, the cost of shipping can become very expensive. The MicroQ iQ shipping device is a life science incubator that will help keep shipping costs low because not only is it lightweight, but it is reusable. The iQ shipping device just needs to be recharged and reprogrammed and it can then be shipped again, which eliminates the need for disposable shipping containers. Life sciences are a broad but important field and are making many advancements for the treatment of diseases, how the human body works, pharmaceuticals and much more. For such an important field, no risk can be taken when shipping. The MicroQ iQ life science incubator will protect materials during transport to ensure they arrive in optimal condition for use.
