I need to rent a nitrogen vapor shipper to move IUI vials from a clinic in VA (they can't provide it) to TX to use my IUI vials at home.  Anyone have experience renting a shipper and possibly having to recharge it yourself?  None of the cryobanks I've contacted so far are willing to rent to an individual.

I'm sorry I don't know where you can rent a tank. I tried looking into recharging a tank locally and needed permits. Universities were the only place I could find anything. Can your Texas bank provide a tank? Could your doctor arrange the shipment?

Good luck finding a better answer.

Some banks provide a shipping service (e.g. I know California Cryo does) where they work with the other clinic to ship a tank, which then loads it up and ships it back, and the vials can then be stored there. But I don't know if they would do the same for shipment between unaffiliated clinics/banks.

I ended up going w/ ccb to ship my vials but I had to open a storage account.  Oh well.  The logistics of possibly having to recharge the tank were making me nuts AND it was going to be nearly as expensive from the places I found that would rent the charged tank to an individual.  Now they're stored and problem solved.
