Tissue banks are a valuable addition to the medical community. They are able to further research which may ultimately save the lives of millions of people. Even tissues not suitable for direct transplant may still be donated for such research, affording individuals and families the opportunity to further medical science and contribute to the advent of advanced treatments and even cures. Ship Critical understands the vital nature of such research and are committed to providing the highest quality tissue coordination and shipment services.
