Safely packed during transport

Dear Sir or Madam,

Patient samples are a sensitive cargo: On the one hand, they have to reach the laboratory intact to be usable for analysis. On the other hand, they can be a potential risk of infection. Their most important protection thus is their packaging. Learn in our current Special what safe packaging solutions for patient samples look like.

Have a nice week,

Timo Roth
Editorial team

PS: What is small, conductive and consists of aluminum oxide and platin? It is the CerMet technology from Heraeus! It will make a lot of things possible for miniaturized implants and sensors in the future. Learn more about it in our current video.

When it comes to the transport of medical samples, there are two important aspects. On the one hand, the sample itself must be optimally protected, otherwise it will become unusable for analysis. On the other hand, the outside world must not come into contact with potentially infectious material. Various laws and regulations determine how these transports must be labelled and packed. Find out more in our current Special.
