Ensure COVID-19 Specimens are Shipped According to CDC Temperature Guidelines
COVID-19 testing kits are making their way to more communities throughout the United States. As of March 20, there are 91 public health laboratories that have completed verification and are offering diagnostic testing.
MaxPlus Specimen Coolers can help ensure specimens are maintained at the required temperature. According to CDC guidelines, specimens must be stored at 2-8°C for up to 72 hours after collection. If a delay in testing or shipping is expected, specimens are required to be stored at -70°C or below. Specimens outside of these temperatures will be rejected.
Using proven MaxifyTM technology, the MaxPlus Stat Pouch and the MaxPlus Specimen Export Shippers are pre-qualified and validated to hold specimens at precise temperatures during transport. Easy to pack for quick deployment, the MaxPlus Specimen Shippers include audit ready reports and pack out instructions, giving healthcare personnel dependability when it is needed most.
