Laboratory couriers

Background_laboratory2With extensive experience in meeting the exacting standards required for laboratory sample work Dex’s Midnight Runners are well equipped to tailor their services to meet your critical processes and audit requirements.

We are proud to work with some of the biggest names in laboratory sampling. These customers trust us because we have demonstrated that we recognize just how crucial it is that we get things right, first time.

Water samples

Our services have included transporting samples to and from laboratories for analysis, throughout the UK and Europe. We have worked typically with water (potable and waste), each requiring an EXACT service where the minutest detail must be actioned and recorded for full accountability.

Food samples

Our services have included transporting samples to and from laboratories for analysis, throughout the UK and Europe. We were heavily involved during the 2013 horsemeat crisis, with transportation requiring EXACT services where the minutest detail must be actioned and recorded for full accountability.

Soil samples

Our services have included transporting samples to and from laboratories for analysis, throughout the UK and Europe. We have worked typically with water, food and soil samples, each requiring an EXACT service where the minutest detail is actioned and recorded for full accountability.

Chain of Custody and Audit

Because temperature controlled sample transport is a highly-specialised service, it is crucial that you choose a courier you can trust, with the right know-how to meet the EXACT needs of each movement. Timings, handling and separation of samples as well as the admin, chain of custody and audit process come as second nature to us, while also recognising the unique needs of each Laboratory.

Our temperature controlled fleet

Our temperature-controlled courier transport fleet can handle heated, chilled and frozen deliveries (including vans with split compartments to meet both needs). They are all tracked and calibrated and serviced to a strict schedule.

Van sizes vary from small to large (capable of handling 3.5-pallet space loads up to 1300 kgs). They are all fitted with calibrated temperature logs providing a detailed audit trail that registers at least every 15 minutes 24/7.

Confidence and Certainty

Because sometimes belt and braces is best, our vans have temperature alert probes as standard which relay information to our dedicated office for complete management control for us and complete peace of mind for you. This means we can provide you with two sets of evidence to support your audit requirements. We believe this goes well above and beyond the standards of service from most other couriers on the market, but can be crucial is some circumstances.

Our actions are backed by an ISO 9001  2015 accredited Quality Management System. In addition our procedures have recently been judged to be compliant with ISO 17025 requirements.

Testimonials

DMR’s attention to detail and adherence to important processes and procedures is second to none. They are the only courier company we have used who consistently understand that the audit trail is every bit as important to us as the delivery. This was proven recently when they were judged as compliant within our 17025 accreditation.
