Feb 22, 2017

Medical and chemical labs handle a wide variety of potentially dangerous substances. Whenever one of these labs needs to move to a new location, or dispose of these potentially dangerous substances, they call upon a lab packing service.

Who uses Lab Packing Services?

Over years of use, a lab can start to collect outdated, contaminated, or unidentifiable substances. When a lab needs to clean out their storage room for one of these reasons, they call upon a lab packs service. Another use for a lab packing service would be if a lab is literally packing up to move somewhere else—hence the name “lab-packing”.

Lab packing is a process by which a trained team of lab packing experts comes to a medical or chemical lab to identify and sort all substances scheduled for transport in accordance with local and federal regulations. Then, once properly categorized, our lab packing technicians will pack up like substances together to help minimize overall disposal costs.
