When operating a medical courier transportation business like Bio-Test Express, Safe Driving and Delivery Package Protection is of the utmost importance.
Continuing Education, Training, and Liability Insurance is required by law to meet both federal and state transportation requirements.
Bio-Test Express provides insurance protection up to $5 million per occurrence. This measure is taken to afford our customers complete protection against all claims and possible liable suits. The amount set by our insurance carrier far exceeds the minimum required by law and speaks directly to the attention to detail that Bio-Test gives to every facet of the business.
Our insurance carrier conducts on-site audits to verify that every area of concern, be it employee hiring, maintenance of equipment, or employee safety, is conducted with the objective of upholding the highest standards.
Transportation Permits & Licensing
Each Bio-Test Express vehicle is properly marked with its PUC License Number and place of origin. Correct licensing and identification are required for all companies that serve the public via transportation of goods/people.
Bio-Test also retains licenses from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Interstate Commerce Commission. The Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) is regulatory agency of the United States created by the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887. The agency’s purpose is to regulate interstate transportation to ensure fair rates, to eliminate rate discrimination, and to regulate other aspects of common carriers.
Because of our manufacturing expertise, Bio-Test is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Food & Drug Administration, and the United States Department of Health.
Transportation safety is regulated by multiple Department of Transportation agencies, as well other Federal agencies.
Licenses with these agencies mandate that we monitor and adhere to regulatory amendments, utilize best practices and follow all transportation requirements for each associated organization.

EMPLOYEE SCREENING & TRAINING
Our mission is to make tangible the difference that a singular-focused, employee-based organization makes in the management of blood and bio-hazardous materials…because it is more than just a simple delivery. Therefore, our employees pass a number of checks before starting with the Company…including a review of their physical and driving history. And, before ever turning over the ignition, they receive a full orientation regarding the special precautions and procedures required for safe handling and transportation of the critical materials we are trusted to deliver.
As a pioneer in service to laboratory and transfusion medicine, Bio-Test Express draws on decades of experience which have defined the protocols to which our Couriers adhere. However, Standards and the roster of codes is ever-changing, and Bio-Test management is adept at anticipating new edicts from Federal and State governments. Thus, our Couriers are trained and tested on OSHA and other FDA requirements every year-regardless of tenure.
