What Is Specimen Bag?

Specimen bag, or biohazard specimen bag, is a kind of paper or plastic bag specially designed for the safe containment, transport and disposal of diagnostic and infectious materials.

The air-tight sealing with zipper lock of the specimen bag make it available to create a sterile, air-tight environment to contain biohazardous substances. This protects laboratory and test samples from external contamination and protects operators from potentially infectious substances. Specimen bag is designed to resist tearing, puncturing or leaking are generally much stronger than other plastic bags. Many also have some kind of padding inside, such as bubble wrap, for extra protection for fragile materials.

What Is Specimen Bag Used For?

Biohazard specimen bags are used throughout the healthcare industry and are commonly used to safely transport and secure medical materials, like swabs, vials, organs and medical waste. These versatile and convenient specimen bags are available in clinics, doctor’s offices, nursing houses, hospitals and medical laboratories for various purposes.

Specimen Bag Used In Doctor’s Offices And Clinics

Test samples are often sent to a laboratory for off-site testing and must be shipped in sealed containers to prevent them from coming into contact with external contaminants. Many test samples contain infectious or potentially infectious material that can cause illness in those who come into contact with them, so they must be systematically sealed and labeled. Medical specimen bags are essential to keep these materials in a sterile and closed environment to ensure operator safety and protect the viability of test samples.

Specimen Bag Used In Hospitals

Hospitals produce a large amount of biohazardous medical waste, and have a great need to transport biological samples such as blood, test samples and organs. These materials often have to be moved quickly and carefully from one area of a building to another for diagnostic or other medical use, necessitating extensive use of pathology specimen bags. These can be used to transport organs for transplantation, laboratory specimens for diagnosis, or medical waste for safe disposal. It is critical that all wastes reach their destination quickly and efficiently, and easy-to-use specimen bags in hospitals are critical to realizing this.

Specimen Bag Used In Medical Laboratory

Research facilities such as medical laboratories also use many biohazard sachets and packaging in their day-to-day operations. Sensitive laboratory samples must be handled and transported carefully to prevent contamination by external debris, which is essential to ensure the accuracy of test results. Laboratory specimen bags are specially designed for this purpose and are easy to label so their contents can be quickly determined. Many specimen bags are double-layered designs with an additional outer layer for labeling documents for easy identification. Waste that comes in contact with potentially infectious materials must also be stored and disposed of safely to protect anyone who handles them. Used vials, test tubes, test samples and other materials should be stored in clearly labeled biohazard bags and then safely removed by a professional collection company.

Why Is It Important To Use Specimen Bag?

Facilities in the healthcare industry transport biohazardous materials such as laboratory specimens, test samples, human tissue and medical waste on a daily basis. These substances are often transported between locations for testing, diagnostics, medical use or disposal and must be packaged in such a way that they do not come into contact with any external objects. For diagnostic samples, they must be contained in a sterile environment to prevent contamination and maintain their testability. Medical waste and potentially infectious materials such as blood or items contaminated with human waste must be kept in airtight containers to protect the health of operators and transporters

Medical waste is highly contagious, biologically toxic and corrosive. If the discharge management is not strict or handled improperly, it will be lost by wind or rain, causing pollution to water, atmosphere and soil and direct harm to human body. . Different from domestic wastes, medical wastes are more harmful due to the huge number and variety of germs carried, and they have the characteristics of space infection, acute infection, cross-infection and latent infection.

To this end, healthcare companies use biohazard bags to move hazardous medical materials safely and securely from one place to another, so they can be used or disposed of without compromising their purpose or health.

Compressive strength of specimen bag

95kPa specimen transport bag is able to withstand an internal pressure of 95kPa in the temperature range of -40°C to +55°C without leakage. It is available for road transportation of UN3373 biological samples, pathogenic microorganisms (viruses), blood, vaccines, etc.

Sizes Of Specimen Bag

Biohazard bags of various sizes can be applied to transport different medical materials. The most common sizes are: 7*17cm, 7*18cm, 5*14cm, 15*22cm, 12*15cm, 5*14cm, 25*25cm, 24*37cm, 25*30cm. Customization dimension is available with 2 or 3 layers, thickness ranges from 8cc to 12cc.

How To Use A Specimen Bag?

  • Open the dashed seal above the sampling bag.
  • In order to avoid contaminating the interior of the sampling bag, please pull the pull bars on both sides of the opening to open the sampling bag.
