CentoCard® – Simplify Your Logistics
Sending biological samples for genetic testing from one country to another is a complex procedure: complicated packaging is needed to ensure that the sample will not break during transport; international packaging standards, which increase shipping costs, must be adhered to; biohazard labeling is required; and time consuming paperwork is needed to comply with the multiple safety regulations of various countries.
