95kPa specimen transportation bags in full production

SIRANE is beginning full production on a range of 95 kPa specimen transportation bags which will help users remove the risks associated with packaging failure.

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

Safe-Hold now offers the complete transportation solution– including absorbent pads, absorbent pouches and 95 kPa specimen transportation bags.

Safe-hold™ absorbent 95 kPa transportation bags are designed to ensure containment of the contents, even in the event of catastrophic failure of the primary package.

Jonathan Mason, business development manager, said: “The legislation surrounding the transportation of diagnostic specimens is complex and understandably stringent.

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

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

“The various Safe-Hold products can be combined for a complete secondary packaging solution – or purchased as separate components.”

Safe-hold™ absorbent pads and pouches are available in a wide range of sizes with absorbency levels calculated to meet all requirements. They are available with a leak-proof adhesive closure, puncture resistance, printed tracking information and other features.

95 kPa bags allow that extra level of security in the packaging, full encasing all the specimen pouches in a sealed bag capable of withstanding pressure change differentials.

Sirane’s Safe-Hold range is just one of a number of medical & healthcare products, with surface protection, dental products and a range of products for surgery also available.

BenchGuard® Advanced offers the ultimate bench protection for laboratories, hospitals, surgeries and other clinical environments where high absorbency and sterile surface protection is required. It has a highly absorbent surface and an effective liquid barrier layer to ensure that spillages are contained and protect the work top.

Our dental products include saliva absorbers & extraction packs, and we also offer absorbent tourniquet drapes, absorbent tray liners and absorbent theatre mats – all disposable. We also manufacture and sell Cellosene absorbent wadding for wound care.

Sirane is a highly innovative product development-to-manufacture company based in Telford, Shropshire. It has four divisions: food packaging; medical and healthcare; industrial and horticultural. The company’s specialisms include absorbency.
