author/source: Alpha Laboratories Ltd

IATA standard 95kPa Flexible Secondary Pouches for the safe air transport of biological samples are now available from Alpha Laboratories.

Transportation of biological specimensThese form part of the wide range of convenient and cost effective sample packaging materials that help ensure your UN3373 compliance. 

The IATA pouches are ideal for sample containers with unknown pressure resistance or that are not 95kPa certified. They are tested at temperature extremes from -40 C to +55 C, making them robust enough to withstand the changes in pressure and temperature encountered during air transport. They include a document wallet and have a lot number. The IATA pouches can be used as the secondary packaging option when combined with a rigid outer box. 

Transportation of biological specimens is subject to the Transport of Dangerous Goods Regulations. Most human or animal samples are classified as Category B and must be packaged in accordance with UN3373 requirements for road or air transport. Failure to use adequate materials and follow the correct packaging procedures could lead to prosecution.
