New Safe, Low Cost, Easy Sample Transport Systems

Jul 16 2012

Getting patient and other biologically hazardous samples safely from their source to the laboratory can be problematic. Packing and mailing of samples needs careful handling and adherence to regulations such as UN3373 is a demanding task.

The new SpeciSafe™ packs, now available from Alpha Laboratories Ltd (Eastleigh, Hants, UK) provide a safe, convenient and economical solution to this chore.

Currently, laboratory personnel have to wrap primary sample containers in an absorbent material, then place this in a sealed plastic bag and finally put all this into a rigid box. This requires multiple materials and can result in mailing packages being of considerable size, increasing the cost of postage.

SpeciSafe replaces the secondary packaging and combines a unique, internally bonded super absorbent lining within a single piece shock resistant container. This can be placed directly in a padded envelope or bag, ready for posting. What’s more, the SpeciSafe pack dimensions minimise postage costs. Depending on the sample vial size they can be mailed at large letter or small packet rate.

The efficient SpeciSafe lining soaks up any fluid from leaking vials in seconds. The material is so absorbent that 1m2 retains as much as 20 litres of liquid. Once the lining has absorbed its maximum volume of liquid, it creates a watertight barrier and effectively seals the SpeciSafe pack eliminating the risk of any leakage from the secondary container.

SpeciSafe packs are available in a range of designs to fit perfectly around commonly used 95 kPa sample vessels. They include packs for single or up to ten sample containers covering the commonly used Urine, Blood, and Swab vessels, amongst others. One side is made of clear plastic to enable visibility of sample details without unpacking and to provide visible spillage indication to protect the user.
