Lab & Medical Relocation

The Challenge

From Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), sensitive lab equipment, electron microscope, testing equipment as well as bio samples and specimens had to be moved. Not only that, but they had to be specially transported in special containers to maintain ultra-low temperatures while in transit.


The Solution 

Among the items moved there were 27 enclosed testing units on rolling racks. Each unit had sensitive electronics inside, so our team devised a plan to carefully fill each unit with clean poly fill material to prevent the possibility of damage or impact to the equipment during transportation. There additionally were active research materials including temperature-sensitive bio samples that were being stored in two sub-zero freezers. The freezers were not mobile, so they carefully transferred the bio samples into several “strong box” stainless steel insulated containers packed with refrigerants to maintain the needed ultra-low temperatures. A Temperature Control Monitor was utilized for real-time monitoring while in transit.



Our team was on time and efficient on the day-of the move. They were also acknowledged by the client for the care, understanding and patience that went into the wrapping and moving of sensitive equipment.  Everything was transported and moved successfully, so much so that the client left us saying, “Thanks again for everything and I will definitely recommend OMX to any colleagues in need of moving services.”.
