Transport of sensitive samples

Transport your samples in less time, with less exposure to the elements, and free of parking hassles

Red Runner is a shuttle service to transport sensitive samples, like live mice and cells, between your lab and our facilities. Red Runner operates on the Ithaca campus only, with standard stops at the following locations:

  • Physical science building
  • Veterinary Research Tower
  • Veterinary Medical Center
  • Biotechnology Building
  • Baker Institute

Sign up for a ride when you schedule time on an instrument. If you need a stop at a non-standard location, let us know.

All biohazardous samples must be transported in sealed containers within secondary containment in case of spillage.
The transport of animals is covered by the following ACUP: https://ras.research.cornell.edu/care/documents_k/ACUPs/ACUP547.pdf
