ESC-10 and the cold chain of custody

Laboratory test samples and specimens are vulnerable when they travel, and often a lower temperature must be maintained to preserve their integrity. While refrigerators and freezers are standard equipment in all medical offices and the testing laboratories, test samples often take a long journey from the office to the testing lab. During transit, they must be protected from damage and it is critical to maintain a cold “chain of custody”. To address this, leading labs prefer a portable specimen container to protect vials and maintain proper temperatures. McShane’s ESC-10 is considered one of the best designed portable specimen containers in the industry. It is the preferred solution for many top testing labs since 1997. 


Keeping It Cool

The ESC-10 employs state of the art gel packs to keep vulnerable specimens at the proper temperature. The advanced locking clam-shell design protects the samples from damage. Documentation is neatly clamped into the ESC-10 so vital information stays with the sample at all times. And, of course, the ESC-10 fits perfectly into McShane’s Lablocker lock boxes where they are safely held until pick-up by an authorized courier. 

The Standard

ESC-10 is an easy-to-use solution which has become an industry standard for safely transporting specimens to the test lab. The ESC-10 is used by many of the top global test labs. 

The ESC-10 provides leading laboratories and their couriers with an innovative solution to maintain a cold “chain of custody” for specimens. Features such as modern gel technology, reusable multi-sample container design, and an easy-to-use snap-close cover keep your specimen cool and your tracking documentation easily visible. 

Each case contains eight (8) ESC-10 frozen specimen containers.

Our courier company strongly encourages the use of LabLockers. We have been a customer for over 10 years and no other metal box vendor we tried in the past compares to the quality and customer service we get at McShane. Any business in the courier industry, specifically medical samples, should consider LabLockers.
