What characteristics do our containers have?
We are pioneers in the commercialization of two types of transport containers for biological samples: the CTM01 and the CTM03.
CTM01 sanitary container
Specific for the transport of Category A samples. This category encompasses the set of substances with pathogenic agents that can cause permanent damage or can endanger life, if exposure occurs. The CTM01 Transport Container for Biological Samples is made up, in accordance with the OMS recommendations, of two differentiated containers that, concentrically, are housed one inside the other, plus a very resistant compact cardboard mandrel that is housed in the interior of the secondary container.
CTM03 sanitary container
Specific for the transport of Category B samples. Within this category are included those biological materials that do not meet the requirements to be part of Category A, previously described. The CTM03 Biological Samples Transport Container is composed, in accordance with the OMS recommendations, of two differentiated containers that, concentrically, are housed one inside the other.

We work with more than 250 centers and institutions
Our clients are mainly health centers, public and private hospitals, blood banks, penitentiaries, municipal laboratories, private laboratories, bodies and State security forces.
What is a biological sample?
A biological sample is defined as any substance of human or animal origin that is collected in order to be analyzed, in a way that serves to help establish the clinical diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of diseases. This type of sample can be analyzed in the reference center’s own laboratories or in other specialized external laboratories outside that center and chosen by the study promoter. To ensure proper transport of the same, the World Health Organization establishes the Regulations for the Transport of Infectious Substances.
Types of substances
Category A substance
They are those infectious substances that contain pathogens (viruses, parasites, bacteria, fungi, etc.) and can cause permanent damage or put life at risk, if exposure occurs.
Category B substance
All biological matter (serum, DNA without pathogens …) that does not meet the requirements to be part of category A is considered. Examples are blood, serum, DNA without pathogens.
Transport of infectious substances
Since the hazards posed by Category A infectious substances and Category B infectious substances are different, so are the packaging / packaging requirements.
See our catalog.
Labeling and documentation
The same happens with labeling, the requirements relating to labeling and documentation corresponding to each category are different.
