Delivering lab samples via bicycle messengers
“Europe has developed clear guidelines for transporting biological samples,” explains Christophe Jansem, Head of Sales and Marketing for DEBATIN’s French subsidiary L.E.S.S. France. This is where Packaging Instruction P650 for hazardous goods comes into play. “The regulations apply to transportation via public roads, which means they also apply to couriers who use bicycles or scooters,” Jansem adds. Only recently have more and more companies begun to discover just how attractive this solution is – not only are bicycles a greener option, but in dense inner city traffic, they’re also much faster.

“When you transport biological samples or lab samples, you not only need a primary receptacle and secondary packaging, but also rigid outer packaging. That’s especially challenging, of course, if you’re transporting the samples via bicycle courier,” explains Christophe Jansem. To solve the problem, the DEBAMED® experts in France developed a product to complement the LaBOX that’s used when transporting samples by car. In this case, it’s a rucksack that meets the P650 requirements for “rigid outer packaging”.
