Secondary Packaging Solutions

SpeciSafe® Complete System


Pouch and Absorbent

Secondary Packaging

SpeciSafe® packs combine an ultra absorbent lining within a hard shell casing and are designed to fit a range of blood vials.


They include built in tube separation, avoiding the need to individually wrap each sample container for a quick and easy solution.

Secondary Packaging

Alternatively to ensure compliance faecal pots should be individually wrapped in absorbent and then placed in a secondary pouch.

If the primary container is not 95kPa compliant, then the pouch must be pressure tested to this level and there are different gauges of pouch specific for Road Transport and Air Transport.

Using this format the outer packaging must be a rigid box.
