ISTC faced and overcame the challenge to find a suitable flights with a short flying time as some materials required minus temperature storage with dry ice, plus finding air carriers which agreed to take these lab supplies on board, with very few flight options were available due to pandemic, but conversely all such imported items were related to combatting the pandemic in Kazakhstan.   
IMB & GIZ are also linked with the German Budeswehr Institute of Microbiology which ISTC has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with in February 2020 with whom ISTC assisted with the transportation of two Mobile Labs from Munich to Tashkent under the Biosafety Biosecurity EU Project P53 in Central Asia.
