SureSeal Sterile Sampling Bagsarrow12SureSeal™ Sterile Sampling Bags

SureSeal™ Bags are gamma sterilized, leaving a virgin interior surface with no toxic residue from gas exposure. Samples can easily be collected by removing the tear strip above the wire closure and pulling on the two external grip tabs to open the mouth of the bag to the desired level. Using the grip tabs ensures sterility and eliminates the risk of contamination from finger contact. Then, introduce the sample into the bag, flip or fold the bag three times, bend the wires and your sample is secure inside the airtight and moisture-sealed bag.

SureSeal™ bags are made of virgin polyethylene for excellent clarity and stregth. They meet USDA, EPA and FDA standards and are sterile, RNase-free, DNase-free and non-pyrogenic. The PVC tab that surrounds the stainless steel wire is extended beyond the wire ends to eliminate the potential for punctures, scratched hands or ripped gloves due to exposure to uncovered wire ends.

Several sizes are supplied with a white printed area that eliminates tapes, labels, etc. and makes markings more longlasting, clearly visible and less prone to smearing. Although these bags can contain up to 55oz. (1600 ml), they fold completely flat and require very little storage space.

Paper Biopsy Bagsarrow12Biopsy Paper Filters

Proven Technology. Superior Reliability. Protecting Every Life Story In Your Lab.

Specifically designed for processing biopsy specimens. Non-absorbent mesh allows fluids to flow through freely while containing small tissue fragments.

  • Non-absorbent paper prevents the specimen from being lost: Non-absorbent porous mesh prevents reagent carryover; was designed specifically for processing biopsy specimens
  • Reduces impression made on tissue specimen: Biopsy paper filters eliminate the indentation pattern left by form biopsy pads
  • Eliminates the hassle associated with paper embedding bags: Biopsy paper can be easily opened with tweezers. Unlike bags or pads with bigger pores, the close knitting of the biopsy paper allows for better handling of tough to find and handle specimens
  • Two color choices help manage various colored biopsy specimens: White or black color options provide the contrast necessary to manage various colored small tissues
  • Allows Efficient Solvent Flow-Through During Processing
