Many moving parts: Streck’s global distribution network requires timing, accuracy

A Special for Streck by Kevin Warneke, Omaha World-Herald

One degree of temperature can mean the difference in a successful delivery of a Streck testing kit to hospitals, medical clinics and research laboratories throughout the world.

Streck, an Omaha-based biotech company, ships 25,000 product kits weekly throughout the world. They must arrive on time and they must arrive within specific temperature ranges – or they can’t be used.

Streck’s product kits are blood controls for monitoring hematology instruments – which means their successful delivery can result in the difference between accurate or inaccurate patient results used by a physician for assessing disease.
