Use "cold packs" in styrofoam containers.  Cold packs are commercially
available.  In Canada, a company called Saf-T-Pak can help you.  They can also
help you if the "transport" you talk about is by way of commercial carrier
(i.e., FedEx) because this mode of transport is heavily regulated by the
government, including the Canadian government (i.e., you are using a public
carrier in the transport of an infectious disease).  Check with the company for
more information.
