The Simport® Eco-Friendly SpecTainerTM will biodegrade to become some of the soil’s organic components in less than 7 years in constant contact with the soil instead of up to 400 years when using conventional plastics.
The Simport® Eco-Friendly SpecTainerTM, one of the most innovative specimen containers on the market today, is now available in a new version: The Eco-Friendly SpecTainerTM, a rapidly degradable Specimen Container. Plastics take hundreds of years to degrade naturally in the environment. The only condition that is necessary for the Eco-Friendly SpecTainerTM to biodegrade is constant contact with other degrading material. No heat, physical stress, oxygen or sunlight necessary. The Eco-Friendly SpecTainerTM has the ability to break down safely and quickly, by biological means, into the raw materials of nature and disappear into the environment.
Non sterile containers only available with gold color cap.
Sterile containers only available with aqua color cap. Sterilization: Gamma radiation.
