LAB SERVICES & SUPPLIES: New colour-changing absorbent pads are a world’s first

Colour-changing absorbent pads

SIRANE will launch its new colour-changing absorbent pad at Lab Innovations on Wednesday – and it is a game-changer in the compliant specimen transportation industry.

Our new Safe-Hold Alert is an absorbent pad which change colour when any liquid touches the surface. Used as part of a compliant packaging solution, they alert the user to any leaks in samples. Pads can be made in any sizes/shape, and we can offer a range range of absorbencies to suit all applications.

Safe-Hold Alert pads are used as the absorbency requirement in specimen transportation, as part of the UN3373 requirement. When the packaging arrives at the lab, if the pads are white, there is no problem, but if the pads are red the lab technician is alerted to the fact that they need to handle the sample with care. Will save time in unpacking samples and increase efficiency in the lab.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “This development is something we’ve been asked for many times, and we’re pleased to now be able to offer it to the market. We believe in the compliant packaging sector, a pad which alerts the lab team to a potential leak is a real game-changer.

“Using this technology, simply by looking at the pad, the lab teams would know there was a problem. It keeps them safer and increases efficiency in the labs.”

Lab Innovations runs at the NEC, Birmingham from Wednesday, November 3 to Thursday, November 4. Find us at stand E64.
