General description

Especially designed for collection, transport and storage of histology specimens, Simport offers shatter resistant polypropylene containers, eliminating most problems of leakage and evaporation. The magenta lids are ribbed for easy opening when hands are wet or gloved while the jars are stackable for easy, safe storage and translucent to allow specimens to be viewed without opening. The closures are manufactured from virgin polyethylene with a unique integrated leak-resistant seal. Container′s vertical walls offer excellent rigidity.

The uniqueness of the HistoTainer I is that it incorporates an innovative tamper evident screw cap ensuring your peace of mind during transport or storage situations where someone might have manipulated the specimen without your prior knowledge. Can also be used without using the tamper evident locking mechanism.

Both containers and caps are manufactured without the use of plasticisers or mold release agents. All material used in manufacture are free from latex. All containers are 95 kPa compliant. Available in many sizes from 20 to 120 ml. Packaging in trays of 24, cases of 96.

The Simport HistoTainer I is half filled with 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin as a fixative. 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin penetrates quickly, but fixes slowly. The Simport Formalin is enhanced by a buffering capacity optimizing histological results by light microscopy and immunohistochemistry.
