home/FAQ DryShipper

What are the benefits of using DryShipper 3.0?

  • Save Money:Why spend your cash on logistics or on high cost material? Try our single-use system, and buy the DryShipper on demand.

  • Reduce the Risk of Specimen Loss: Due to our hard fiber craft construction, our containers can resist multiple shocks and effectively protect your most fragile biological samples.

  • Recycle: Most of the parts comprising our DryShippers are environmentally friendly. Moreover, our system uses liquid nitrogen (the major component of air) rather than dry ice; liquid nitrogen does not contribute to global warming.

  • Integrate into the Logistics Scheme: There is no need to use a specific logistics company. Just find the nearest distributor in your area.
Is Liquid Nitrogen Toxic?
Liquid Nitrogen is not toxic, it actually makes about 78% of the air we breath and is the fifth most abundant element in the universe. It will not react chemically or biochemically at the temperatures and pressures that the DryShipper will be exposed during storage and transportation.

What is the temperature of the Liquid Nitrogen?
Under normal atmospheric pressure, liquid nitrogen boils at -196o C (77 K; −321 °F) and freezes at -210o C (63k; −346 °F)

What is the DryShipper 3.0 Liquid Nitrogen Capacity?
3.0 Liters

What is the holding time/ dynamic autonomy for the DryShippper 3.0?
The DryShipper 3.0 will last up to 4 days overnight; may go as long as 3-4 days.

Is the DryShipper compliant with the IATA standards and ISTA 3A approved?

The DryShipper 3.0 is compliant with IATA standards, Special Provision A152. IATA compliance requires specific notification: “NOT RESTRICTED as per Special Provision A152” on the bill of lading. The DryShipper is also ISTA 3A approved.

What safety precautions should I take when handling Liquid Nitrogen?
Liquid Nitrogen is a liquid state providing instant freezing, therefore it's essential to use thermal protective gloves, protective clothing and eye-wear at all times when loading and unloading the DryShipper. Never allow any unprotected part of your body to touch objects cooled by liquid nitrogen.

As the liquid evaporates, the resulting gas can displace the normal air from the area. Nitrogen gas can cause suffocation.  Store and use liquid nitrogen only in a well ventilated location. Keep the DryShipper upright at all times and  handle containers carefully.
