Gene Movers is an Australian owned company that provides storage and distribution services to Australian and overseas purchasers


Gene Movers is an independent company owned and managed by Craig and Claire Mayne. Unique in the world, Gene Movers is an Australian owned company that provides storage and distribution services to Australian and overseas purchasers and suppliers of semen and embryos from all animal species.

With over 24 years’ experience in the field, Craig has developed a highly specialised business which has been recognised for its high standards. That’s why it was  Australia’s first quarantine approved premise (QAP) which is independent of a collection centre.

With Claire in charge of International logistics and Kerrin in charge of domestic logistics, they are supported by a highly trained team as they manage export/import quarantine inspections and audits through The Department of Agriculture at Tullamarine Airport. Gene Movers QAP status means that if there is a problem coming through customs, the delicate products are able to be quarantined safely within cryogenic tanks on their own premises. In this way the health status of products from each individual country can be carefully and securely preserved.



Craig and Claire both love dealing with the distribution side of the business, particularly in managing the demands of international delivery and compliance with quarantine regulations. They pride themselves on their high standard of customer service, doing the hard work for you by handling the product so it maintains its viability and quality.

Gene Movers is an approved stockist and distributor of Chart-MVE liquid cryogenic tanks, which are the same tanks the business relies on for safely storing and distributing your product entrusted into our care, so you know they must be good.

If you need assistance to move or store large or small quantities of animal semen or embryos, contact the team on (+61) 03 5367 1395. Their experience and expertise will ensure you get the help you need.

I have been happily doing business with Craig and the Gene Movers team for over 15 years. I have always found them to be professional with extreme attention to detail, which is exactly what is required when importing, exporting and managing inventories of frozen semen and embryos. That is why Gene Movers are Popplewell Genetic’s principal and preferred supplier of all these services.
