Storage of Clinical Trial Materials,Why Our Lockable Chemical Box is Your Solution

In a clinical trial, the safe storage of materials and samples is pinnacle to the integrity of the investigation. Our clients use our lockable chemical box to limit cross-contamination and ensure all materials are stored safely and securely. 

Storage of raw materials

All materials and pharmaceutical products should be stored in containers which do not adversely affect the quality of the materials or products concerned, and which offer adequate protection from external influences (WHO, 2003). There should normally be a separate sampling area for starting materials in a controlled environment. If sampling is performed in the storage area, it should be conducted in such a way as to prevent contamination or cross-contamination. Our lockable chemical box allows for raw materials to be stored separately and avoids cross contamination. The three digit combination lock ensuring materials can not easily be accessed. The flexible and adaptable nature of the Lockabox One also means it can be easily suited to the needs of the clinical laboratory.

Storage of tests and experiments

The Lockabox One is ideal for the storage of small cryogenic boxes and vials. If you are looking for extra security of small samples we are compact enough to meet your requirements. In addition, the Lockabox One can be stored in conditions up to -80c. This means it is suitable for avoiding cross contamination in fridge and freezer spaces. The Lockabox One Shelf Pack offers extra flexibility with the base insert preventing samples from touching the bottom and middle shelf to allow for better organisation of samples. 

The transparent nature of the Lockabox One in Crystal means the contents are visible at all times, and can easily be identified without having to disrupt and move the samples. We also offer fully opaque boxes to store light sensitive samples.

Storage of expired products in our lockable chemical box

The safe storage of expired materials is also crucial, it is important these are stored in a segmented and quarantined area to avoid misuse. The Lockabox One allows these expired products to be locked away safely and helps to ensure they can not be accidentally mixed with raw materials, helping to maintain the integrity of the trial.
