CentoCard® – Simplify Your Logistics

Sending biological samples for genetic testing across country borders is a complex procedure; complicated packaging is necessary to ensure safe handling of the samples during transport, adherence to international packaging standards which can increase shipping costs, requirement of biohazard labeling which can complicate customs, and extra administrative burden to comply with the multiple safety regulations across many countries.
