Case Study

Protected Ambient Sample Shipping

LabConnect was approached by a leading pharmaceutical research company for help supporting a two-year clinical study of progressive multiple sclerosis. In order to accommodate multiple sampling time-points, the shipping kit needed to hold up to 17 test tubes in isolation, instead of the standard six or seven, and needed to maintain the test tubes within a very limited target temperature range despite exposure to extreme heat or cold for extended periods of time.

Driven by the desire to provide adequate insulation that would meet the temperature requirements while simultaneously saving the client the expense of a more costly oversized shipping container, LabConnect tested many design iterations to create the necessary components. Given existing IATA requirements for UN3373 shippers, LabConnect decided the main component needed to be a protective 95kPa canister that could maintain its orientation and temperature throughout the shipping process.
