Saf-T-Pak Welcomes Two New, Larger Category B and Exempt Specimen Shippers to Its Shipping Product Family

Developed as a result of customer requests, Saf-T-Pak announces the launch of its new STP-270 and STP-270MD product line. "This launch introduces our largest ambient shipping system to date" said David Hebrank, General Manager of Saf-T-Pak. David points out that both systems are qualified as Category B shipping systems accommodating the safe transport of infectious substances in volumes up to 1 liter blood bags, or up to 12 100mL specimen containers. The larger dimensions of these new shippers are 15.5" x 12.5" x 5", accommodating the payload requirements requested by Saf-T-Pak's clientele.

"We are particularly excited about our STP-270MD (Medical Device), as it provides a solution for meeting government regulations pertaining to the transport of contaminated medical devices being returned to the manufacture for sterilization, repair or performance review" says Mr. Hebrank. In order to meet the requirements for shipping Used Medical Devices, the STP-270MD was designed and tested to ensure that the completed package would pass a number of requirements, and it is constructed in such a way that the system cannot leak its contents, break or be punctured under normal transport conditions. Additionally, this system was tested to ensure that the completed package would retain its contents when subjected to a drop test of 1.2 meters.

The launch of the STP-270 and STP-270MD product line demonstrates Saf-T-Pak's commitment to providing superior products, manufactured to the highest quality standards, as defined by Saf-T-Pak's Quality Management System.
