for end-to-end solutions so customers can focus on science

RADNOR, Pa., Sept. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Avantor, Inc. (NYSE: AVTR), a leading global provider of mission-critical products and services to customers in the life sciences, advanced technologies and applied materials industries, has entered into an agreement with Tobin Scientific, a leading provider of biopharma cold chain, ambient storage, and transport & logistics services, to support end-to-end moves for U.S. biopharma customers looking to relocate their labs, research facilities, and samples. This partnership will deliver upon the growing customer need for complex logistics solutions with temperature-specific requirements.

Biopharma and life science companies who require end-to-end moves need partners who can safely move sensitive materials from one place to another with the utmost care.

This solution removes the burden from the customer to solve their storage needs and provides current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) compliance for temperature-controlled materials. These efficiencies and focus on quality enable our customers to focus on what matters most – moving science forward. 

"Whether it's the movement of an entire lab or the transfer of critical samples or materials, Avantor is committed to supporting all steps of our customers' research processes. Our customers need the flexibility to do science where it works best for them, and lab and research moves are critical to that need, but they require a focus on efficiency and security," said Jim Bramwell, Executive Vice President of Americas, Avantor. "This partnership with Tobin Scientific offers efficiency through an end-to-end solution and provides the support our customers need as they grow and scale."

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Avantor to help our customers, whether they are at the earliest stage of research or are among the largest biopharma players," said Brian Tobin, CEO of Tobin Scientific. "Our state-of-the-art storage and transport solutions, together with Avantor's diverse market reach, combine to provide essential services for all our customers."
