Therapak® Ambient Gel Wrap

  • Elongated construction wraps around standard specimen transport bags
  • Ideal barrier to protect ambient specimens during transport
  • Adaptable component for inclusion in biological sample shipping systems

The gel wrap has been used as a wrap-around barrier to insulate valuable samples such as clinical trial specimen tubes or other evacuated blood tubes and serum transport vials. No preconditioning is necessary due to the gelatin type mass that is concealed inside the outer polyethylene film producing an insulating layer of protection between extreme external temperatures and the specimen transport bag holding the specimen tubes. To use, lay the gel wrap on a flat surface and place your transport bag containing the specimen tubes and absorbent material on one half of the gel wrap. Fold the other half of the gel wrap on top of the tubes and place into a suitable insulated shipping container. The gel wrap can be used in conjunction with the Therapak Insulated Envelope (see #56424) by inserting the gel wrap into the envelope and placing the envelope into a shipping box for transport.
