Throughout the pandemic, Alpha Laboratories has been supplying a range of swabs and transport tubes to help facilitate testing demands. The company has also provided expertise and supplies to support compliant specimen transport.
Once a swab sample has been collected there are strict guidelines regarding how it should be packaged for transport to the laboratory. This must be in accordance with UN3373 regulations,
which require the use of primary, secondary and tertiary packaging materials to provide a triple layer compliant system.
Alpha offers an extensive range of sample packaging components and for added convenience the complete sample transport kits, such as the popular RF95-LL1, including absorbent 95-kPa pouch, security seal and the rigid outer box with regulatory markings. Additional specimen bags are also provided.
For transporting large numbers of samples, the Alpha range of UN3373 Medical Sample Carriers is a popular choice with medical couriers and for hospital transport.
