Biological Sample Packaging

Routine herd testing on a large scale can come with its own difficulties. Keeping track of which sample has come from which animal can be complex and requires the tester/farmer writing ear tag numbers onto blood tubes which can then become smudged or damaged. Storing of multiple vials of blood in a field or shed setting can be difficult due to lack of facilities to place samples down and are often put in a pocket or put down in an area that livestock may be able to damage them. The Vet Field Kit offers a solution to both these issues. The sequential dual barcoded labels on each blood tubes allows for removal of the spare label to be placed on a document next to the ear tag number. Removing any risk of pen smudges or pen mistakes. This function also provides full traceability of the sample. The Vet Field Kit is a polystyrene tray which has space for up to x50 blood tubes to be stored and a cardboard outer making it ready to post to the lab once samples have been taken.  For more information regarding our Biological Sample Packaging solutions click the link below.
