Sample transport

Sample transport

Given its peculiarities, transporting samples requires procedures and controls that guarantee the reliability and/or the prevention of any risk of contamination for all the parties (emitter centre, carrier, warehouse, reception laboratory and the general public) that intervene in the logistics circuit, in compliance with the national or international regulations.

Sample transport encompasses:

  • Biological samples, such as stem cells, bone medulla, tissues, corneas, etc.
  • Infectious substances affecting humans and animals (UN 2814 and UN 2900). Category A goods: substances, exposure to which could cause permanent disability or life-threatening disease in humans or animals.
  • Diagnostic samples (UN 3373). Category B goods that do not meet the Category A requirements. Diagnostic specimens that pose a low risk for public health and which are produced during medical practice or research and diagnosis.

Apart from the safety guarantees, at Tempack we ensure, under the supervision of our safety director (ADR, RID, IATA and IMDG regulations) the integrity of the sample during transit so that it reaches its destination with all its original properties intact.

The premises we apply at Tempack are:

  • Absolute control of the specific temperature conditions for each specimen / sample.
  • Prevention of any possible leak of the substance under normal transport circumstances (packaging, hermetic and opaque containers, absorbents, etc.), guaranteeing reception of the sample in perfect conditions.
  • Appropriate identification / labelling and documentation.
  • Customer advice and training.

All our products and solutions comply with all the requirements of the different ADR, IATA, OACI, IMDG and RID regulations for transport of Class 6.2. substances.
