Why do you need specialist transport containers?

Diagnostic specimens and clinical waste are hazardous and often include infectious materials. If not stored and transported securely they can cause significant health risks and spread of infection.

Key Factors in Transport Container Selection

Durability and Leak-Resistance

Our transport containers are performance tested so can withstand the rigours of transportation and prevent spillages during transit.

Removable and Sealable Lids

With a secure clip lid and by using the in-car bracket clinical and diagnostic waste can be kept secure preventing odours and potential contaminants from escaping.

Easy Handling and Portability

The sturdy handles make it easy to transport these containers and their contents safely. They also include an in-car bracket to secure the container whilst in transit.
