Here at Harrow Green we have a specialist division that provides a wide range of expert services in the field of Laboratory relocations.
Our experienced and trained teams have the expertise required to handle every aspect of a laboratory relocation from chemicals, research samples and specimens, sensitive data, refrigerated components, instruments, tools and precision equipment. Whether your move is a single, priceless sample or a complex large scale relocation, our track record, skills and regulatory adherence means that you can trust us with the safe and secure handling of your vital work and equipment.
Our knowledgeable teams know the importance of business critical downtime which is why from the first time you contact us you will be appointed your own Move Manager who will go through your options in detail, discuss your needs and requirements and work with you to create a personalised relocation plan so that we can provide the precise level of service you require from us. Our relocation plans are created to achieve an efficient setup at destination without the compromise of instrumentation or research. By working closely with you from the start, we get to know your requirements and develop an approved procedure for handling and transportation which will include liaising with OEMs and validation service providers when required.
When it comes to regulatory compliance, we leave nothing to chance. Our methodical approach includes IQ/OQ/PQ procedures before and after the move as well as GxP compliance, covering GLP, GCP, GMP and GDP practices. Our expert teams have extensive knowledge in the preparing and packing of instrumentation in accordance with OEM protocols and follow a strict set of procedures, identifying, labelling and logging every individual item using its unique serial number so its specific location can be traced at any point in the process. We work with our customers’ own prepared asset lists, or undertake the set-up of the asset list from scratch.
This approach is why our customers choose us repeatedly over our competitors and why our customer list includes global pharmaceutical companies, biotech firms, healthcare organisations, veterinary laboratories, clinical research organisations (CROs), petrochemical and other high tech industries.
We adopt GxP compliance standards and provide a fully integrated service for the relocation of laboratory instruments and consumables, cold chain materials, data, hazardous goods and cleanroom setups.
Our logistic crews are fully vetted, security and safety trained and most importantly highly skilled in handling mission critical sensitive equipment which means that your valuable research is in the best possible hands. We invest time and money in our own training school which enables us to deliver bespoke and specific training modules in specialist areas such as laboratory relocation.
Our main objective on any laboratory relocation is to work closely with our customer to keep the amount of instrumentation downtime to an absolute minimum and ensure normal operations are restored as quickly as possible within a safe and secure environment.
