LAB SUPPLIES & SERVICES: 95 kPa bags – ensure you are fully compliant and that your packaging can take the pressure…

95kpa pressue bags from Enaris

SIRANE’S 95 kPa specimen transportation bags remove the risks associated with packaging failure and ensure compliance with IATA regulations.

Designed to cope with extremes of pressure in transportation, Sirane bags have been independently tested and certified as being compliant at 95 kPa pressure.

Simon Balderson, group MD, said: “If you’re transporting diagnostic specimens, how confident are you that the packaging you use will actually take the required 95 kPa pressure, and are you prepared for the consequences if it fails?

“The Sirane bag is a fully tested and certified product, and we’re happy to share the test results with you, so that you can have absolute peace of mind.

“There are plenty of reasons why people transporting specimens and precious fluids need to use 95 kPa bags, and our bags can also be used in conjunction with other packaging materials such as our absorbent pouches and absorbent pads.”

The Sirane range of Safe-Hold™ products will ensure full compliance with legislation surrounding biological specimen transportation & Packing Instruction 650.

Safe-Hold™ offers the complete transportation solution – including absorbent pads, pouches (including multi-bay) and 95 kPa specimen transportation bags.

Simon Balderson added: “Packing Instruction 650 is quite clear… the primary or secondary packaging must be capable of withstanding a pressure differential of at least 95 kPa, without leaking. Furthermore, the primary packaging must contain enough absorbent material to absorb the entire contents if needed.

“Our range of Safe-Hold™ products offers all the components needed – either sold separately or together – to ensure absolute compliance on your part.

“The consequences of packaging failing could be catastrophic – and costly – and so it is vital a fully compliant solution is used for samples needing to be transported.

“After months of careful and laborious testing, we began offering our 95 kPa bags, and can currently offer them in three sizes, A6, A5 and A4 – with A3 to follow.”

Safe-hold™ absorbent pads and pouches are available in a wide range of sizes with absorbency levels calculated to meet all requirements. The absorbent pouches can be made in formats ranging from single bay to six-bay pouches.

The Sirane compliant specimen transportation range is just one of many medical & healthcare products available, with surface/spillage protection, dental products and a range of products for use in surgery also available.
