Storing and transporting blood with Versapak’s (BLTD) Protective Blood-in-Transit Carrier.
At Versapak, we also manufacture Blood-in-Transit medical carriers for the emergency transportation of blood between hospitals and other medical organisations. Our Blood Bags are used by Blood Bike couriers across the UK to transport Blood in a tamper evident manner. When Blood is taken and used for transfusion, the receiver needs to be assured that the blood has not been compromised since leaving the provider. The integrity of the blood, its condition, thermal temperature and handling is paramount in-order to save the life of whomever receives it.
Our Versapak Blood Bag is padded, insulated to ensure that integrity. The Thinsulate™ insulation protects the blood-in-transit and maintains the internal temperature for up to 12 hours while the tamper evident locking mechanism provides an indication as to whether anybody has unsealed the bag. All Versapak Blood Bags are UN3373 compliant when bought with our leakproof anti-spillage liner for the secondary packaging and we also provide clips and absorbent pads for the complete transport solution.
Supporting our Key Workers in a time of crisis
During the Corona Virus Outbreak of 2020, Versapak donated a number of transport carriers to the North East Rider Volunteers Scotland (NERVS) – a charity providing the free transportation of blood and other medicine/treatments during a trying time. Neil Powers, Founder/Chairman of NERVS said “We were astounded to receive the 10 sealable carriers with security seals as a very kind donation from the team and they have been put to good use already. As a registered charity we rely on the generosity of the public and various businesses to keep our Blood Bike group running, this huge donation by Versapak has gone a long way to help keep our service safe and secure.”
