Previously QBC Diagnostics and the Drucker Company

When the outside temperature falls below zero and when the summer sun is scorching hot, your sensitive blood specimens are vulnerable during storage and transport.

The Drucker SampleSafe™ keeps your specimens safe for hours, even in extreme climates. With an outdoor temperature of 15oF (-9oC), hematology specimen stored in an insulated steel lockbox can freeze and hemolyze in as little as 15 minutes, while the Drucker SampleSafe™ keeps them safe for 4 hours. Whether the pickup driver is held in traffic or slowed by bad road conditions, your specimens will retain their integrity in the Drucker SampleSafe™.

In 100oF (38oC) weather, specimens can stay cool for hours in the Drucker SampleSafe™. Heat exposure that is common in sheet metal lockboxes can damage the tube’s gel separation barrier, cause proteins to precipitate from the plasma, and render your chemistry specimen unusable. For even longer waiting times, the Drucker SampleSafe™ has a separate chamber for optional cold packs to extend specimen viability for a full 8 hours.

The Drucker SampleSafe™ is a must-have for traveling nurses.  Even when stored in hot or cold vehicles during the next house call, the SampleSafe™ protects sensitive blood samples from damages caused by these temperature extremes.  With hot or cold packs, the specimens can stay comfortable for a full day in most circumstances.
