Are Your Samples Getting Overheated in the Sun?Tuesday Jun 7th, 2022
As summer quickly approaches, the hot weather will soon be coming. When it comes to the summer heat, laboratory lock boxes that are waiting for courier pickup can get overheated because of hot temperatures, which then causes pre-analytical errors. For patients that need immediate test results so that their health care provider can have a better understanding of how to treat them, this can be devastating and can put them in a life-or-death situation. Unfortunately, this is a very common problem that occurs throughout the United States. Here at McShane Welding and Metal Products we are proud to help the clinical laboratory industry keep their specimens cool with our insulated laboratory lock boxes and frozen specimen containers.
