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.
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.
