DOT CFR49 & UN3373 Compliance

Fluid Containment Protection of Biological, Infectious Packages During Transport

There were two different regulations made as a guide for the rules that need to be followed when working with hazardous materials to ensure that biological and infectious substances are appropriately handled and shipped safely.Medical Shipping Fluid Solidifiers | Liquids Absorber

As part Title 49, the Department of Transport (DOT CFR49), was made to issue some requirements that shippers of these materials need to follow.

Section 137 goes into details about the various packaging methods in regards to various modes of transportation, the different specifications and the responsibilities of the shippers.

UN3373 Category B packaging regulations were also made to individually handle biological and infectious substances, which goes together with the CFR 49 requirements. This packaging needs to include the container to hold the material, a material that is wrapped around the container in case of spills, and an outer packaging container for it to be transported in. 

When potentially hazardous bio-waste is moved around within, or outside of a testing lab, blood bank, medical facility, morgue or surgery center, it needs to have enough absorbent solidifier material or immobilizer inside of it to protect the waste container unit in case it leaks, or breakage occurs, or else!

Available in fast-acting pouches or laminate sheets in various sizes, this is where self-bursting fluid absorbers from Safetec of America and MultiSorb Technologies can help!

Drop-in Fluid Solidifier Immobilizer Pouches & Laminated Sheets

Self-ruptering liquid medical waste solidifier pouches are made with super absorbing polymers and are easy, effective and affordable to use. Medical liquid solidifier pouches use a self-bursting technology to quickly absorb, encapsulate and containn blood or body fluids into a semi solid gel.

In the presence of fluids, these pre-measured self-rupturing pouches eliminate the tearing and spillage associated with conventional products. Self-activating technology reduces particulates and bacterial exposure. Available in various sizes, the pouches dissolve within minutes on contact with fluid to quickly absorb and immobilize fluid and reduce bacterial exposure. They can be used along with the self-dissolving sheets listed below.

Laminate paper solidifier sheetss are a fiber based paper bonded with an immobilizing agent and provide the same fluid control protection as packets but are ideal in areas where space is a premium. Available in various sizes, laminate paper sheets can provide effective fluid control in almost any size or shape container and can be used along with the pouch delivery systems described above.
