Thermo Fisher Sci­en­tific of­fers new leakproof vials

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Supplier News -

A new series of leakproof vials has been de­vel­oped to pro­vide sam­ple pro­tec­tion and user safety by en­abling cor­rect cap ap­pli­ca­tion ev­ery time. The unique lid-lock de­sign of the Thermo Sci­en­tific Samco Click­tainer vials makes them ideal for the se­cure trans­port of valu­able and of­ten haz­ardous clin­i­cal, re­search and forensic sam­ples.

The new Samco Click­tainer vials are de­signed for the se­cure col­lec­tion and han­dling of fluid, solid and pow­der sam­ples, in­clud­ing urine, spu­tum and stool spec­i­mens. They bear the CE mark and are com­pli­ant with ap­pli­ca­ble FDA reg­u­la­tions. They also are 95kPa leak and pres­sure tested in ac­cor­dance with stan­dards BS EN 14401 and 14254, re­spec­tively, and are tested to sup­port their use in hospi­tal pneu­matic trans­port sys­tems.

Avail­able in 120 mL and 90 mL for­mats with an op­tional built-in tem­per­a­ture strip, users sim­ply turn the lid gen­tly past the lock sym­bol and an au­di­ble ‘click’ sound will sig­nify the lid is fully sealed. The click mech­a­nism is also tac­tile, and clear mark­ers on the lid and vial also in­di­cate when the lid is cor­rectly closed. As such, users can be con­fi­dent their sam­ples are safe, while the durable tab de­sign re­duces the risk of torn gloves or break-off lead­ing to po­ten­tial con­tam­i­na­tion of the sam­ple.

In ad­di­tion, the vials are avail­able gamma ir­ra­di­ated to a steril­ity as­sur­ance level (SAL) of 10-6 for rou­tine mi­cro­bi­ol­ogy and more sen­si­tive ap­pli­ca­tions or non­ster­ile for gen­eral use.
