Chain of Custody Is King
Due to the sensitivity of patient privacy, all Labs and Hospitals require a secure chain of custody protocol for specimens and paperwork. However, no lab or hospital is the same. Each has their own procedures for routing, specimen collection/transportation, supply deliveries, and management in general. These differences can also affect the types of lockboxes that best fit their protocols. For example, to maintain an auditable paperwork trail, couriers often document the items inside the box and/or take a photograph if the box is found to be empty. This attention to security is understandable for this industry. For this reason, our boxes are lockable and built from heavy gauge corrosion-resistant steel. They have been developed and tested to maintain security while providing ease of use for courier pickup.
Lockable solutions and rugged constructions make our products particularly good at securely holding samples for after-hours and unattended pickup which greatly improves courier efficiency
McShane also offers ESC-10 specimen containers which were custom-designed to handle test tubes in a temperature-controlled environment, providing another level of protection for medical samples awaiting pick-up.
McShane offers a wide variety of options including:
- Insulated courier boxes to keep items cool
- Various locking options to better fit courier/lab needs and protocols
- Slotted boxes so tests can be dropped into the box and prevent tampering.

The shipping environment changed dramatically in 2020 which paved the way for contact-free deliveries to become the new norm.
