Everyday Security for your Samples with EveryDay Specimen Containers

Jun 13 2018 Read 447 Times

Safety and reliability are key requirements for any laboratory that is collecting, storing or transporting large quantities of different biological or non-biological samples on a daily basis. A suitable method should be employed to ensure samples are handled easily and efficiently without compromising sample quality or the safety of your staff.

EveryDay Specimen Containers from Alpha Laboratories have been designed for day-to-day sample handling applications in laboratory and research environments. They are ideal for liquid or solid specimen collection, transportation and storage, even in harsh conditions. The high-clarity jars are made from a durable polypropylene that has been rigorously tested to ensure high chemical compatibility and suitability for use with aggressive chemicals such as formaldehyde.

The disposable containers are widely used in a range of applications including pathology, histology, water sampling and metals analysis. They are also food contact approved and suitable for most microbial testing procedures.

Everyday Containers are supplied with a wide variety of compatible high density polyethylene (HDPE) colour caps. The caps have easy to grip ridges to ensure safe opening and closing of the container, minimising the risk of slipping or spillage.

A unique ‘double seal’ closure technology is employed, which has undergone a process validation that ensures the container and cap remain leak-proof under a pressure differential of not less 95 kPa (0.95 bar,14 psi).

This 95kPa certification makes them suitable for sample transport according to UN3373 packaging instructions, when combined with appropriate secondary and tertiary packaging like SpeciSafe® or other Rigid Flexible Packaging Systems.
