BioSurplus Announces Custom Packaging and Crating Service for Lab Equipment


BioSurplus announced today that it will now offer in-house custom packaging and crating services for its online store, showroom and auction customers.

In keeping with the company's dedication to hiring staff with science and laboratory equipment backgrounds, BioSurplus is adding experts in custom packaging and crating for sophisticated lab instruments to its logistics team.

In order to show its customers the high level of care and expertise that go into packaging their equipment for shipping, BioSurplus has created a video with team member and packaging expert Rob Lopez. The video showcases, from beginning to end, the packing and crating of a live tissue slice analysis and imaging system that was sold in the company's recent auction of equipment from the Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla, California. View the video on BioSurplus' YouTube channel, BioSurplus TV.

“Scientific instruments require special care to protect their value,” says Jackie Townsend, CMO of BioSurplus. “The addition of our in-house custom packaging and crating service for lab instruments is a logical extension to our commitment to customer satisfaction.”
