Single-tube 95 kPa pouch – integrated absorbency can be our colour-changing pad

Single tube 95 kPa bags

A SINGLE-TUBE 95 kPa pouch with integrated absorbency has been added to our Safe-Hold range of UN3373 compliant packaging solutions.

Services offered by Sirane include clinical diagnostic kit assembly & fulfilment service, as well as a product range relevant to the laboratory sector – and in November we launched our new absorbent pad which changes colour when it comes into contact with liquid, Safe-Hold Alert.

And the single-tube 95 kPa pouch can be supplied with Safe-Hold Alert as the integrated absorbency – warning users of any potential problems.

Anish Miah, sales manager for lab services and supplies, said: “These single-tube pouches are ideal for anyone who is transporting just one sample. They are suitable for use with a range of tubes including micro-containers.

“They come with integrated absorbency, and that absorbency can be our Safe-Hold Alert pad which changes colour in contact with liquid.

“This means if there is any failure within the sample/vial itself, the recipient is aware they need to handle with care and can proceed with caution.

“This in itself leads to increased efficiency within the laboratory.”
