Through this multi-year agreement, Monash IVF and its operating businesses will utilize Cryoport's cryogenic logistics solutions and ISO-certified risk mitigation process for the delivery of patients' reproductive materials throughout Australia and internationally. Reproductive materials may be moved from one clinic to another due to costs, a patients' personal move, access to specific donor materials, for storage purposes and more.
