Portables360 is a supporting supplier in helping to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. One of our clients, Quest Diagnostics, is a leader in medical diagnostics and testing and among the nations’ largest COVID testing laboratories.
We offered these key healthcare providers turn-key cold storage spaces to maintain their temperature-sensitive products. As this mission-critical client can confirm, we responded quickly and efficiently from initial contact to delivery and installation.
Portables360 offers the ideal solution for consistent and dependable on-site cold storage. Our equipment features safe, secure, and temperature-controlled spaces.
These units meet all the requirements of temperature control of -30˚F for storing their testing supplies.
After receiving our equipment, Quest Diagnostics performed a comprehensive 48-hour “temperature mapping” test and confirmed these units deliver temperature consistency and accurately. The containers’ temperature remained stable throughout the test. The testing validated our equipment’s capabilities and reassured our customer’s lab technicians and scientists.
Following a surge in the demand for COVID-19 testing, Portables360 delivered a second unit within 48 hours of Quest Diagnostics’ request. Additionally, we were appointed to deliver equipment to their other sites nationwide, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Massachusetts, Kansas, Indiana, and Texas.
“Portables360 supported Quest Diagnostics throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with the emergency installation and operation of four -20˚C freezer trailers to provide required expansion of specimen storage space within one week of demand. [Portables360’s] technical oversight of transport, delivery, installation and power connections enabled a smooth setup and storage transition at four different lab locations. These external units were maintained and serviced to sustain continuous operations without interruption.”

Our quick response and delivery time met Quest Diagnostics’ time-sensitive requests. We provided efficient and secure cold storage solutions at a fraction of the cost and time that it would take to construct fixed structures.
Benefits of COVID-19 Supplies Storage Containers
In addition to the need for a controlled temperature setting, the containers have vapor tight LED lighting. Our vapor tight lighting exceeds the necessary 500-700 lumens expected in science laboratories.
Quest Diagnostics installed a fully insulated and secure man door to provide their technicians with easy access. This installation retains temperature and security features.
Given the sensitive cargo Quest Diagnostics stores, they opted for Portables360 remote monitoring. The monitoring offers them real-time temperature and mechanical reporting directly to their phone via SMS and email.
Our high-quality portable containers offer a cost-effective and timely storage for healthcare companies to meet their temperature, lighting, security, and monitoring requirements.
