Therapak offers three canister sizes that comply with DOT and IATA regulations as a secondary container for the transport of blood tubes, urine vials, and other Biological Substances. For International transport of specimens, these canisters can be used with primary containers, absorbent material and a rigid outer container (typically a box) to conform to IATA Packing Instruction 650 for Biological Substances, Category B.
SMALL Canister (No. 23027) – Constructed of translucent PET material with screw cap closure and special liner to insure watertight transport conditions, this canister is ideal for small shipments up to 5 tubes.
MEDIUM Canister (No. 23072) – Thick walled and durable, this canister holds up to 12 tubes (depending on the volume of tubes being transported) and features an o-ring gasket that creates a tight seal for watertight transport. The construction of this canister is ideal for harsh transport conditions including dry ice shipments of frozen Biological Specimens inside insulated coolers.
LARGE Canister (No. 23080) – This high capacity canister holds up to 20 tubes depending on tube sizes. The most durable of all our 95kPa canister products, the large secondary container is reusable when appropriately disinfected between uses.
