Patient samples: safe packaging, safe shipping

Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you ever thought about how patient samples are sent from the physician to the laboratory? As medical samples are a highly sensitive cargo, shipping packaging in particular must be very safe. Its purpose is not only to protect the samples from damage, but also to protect people from a possible infection. In our current video video, we asked Versapak what such packaging looks like.

Have a warm week,
