New challenges, established solutions: ZARGES hazardous goods containers for infectious substances assigned to Class 6.2

The year 2020 has presented the entire world with a massive challenge: humans and systems are being pushed to their limit by the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19). It is hence all the more important that everyone does what they can to help contain the spread of the disease.


ZARGES hazardous goods containers fulfil all requirements
for shipping and transporting
clinical specimenssuspected of containing
coronaviruses (2019-nCoV).


ZARGES hazardous goods containers are approved as composite packaging for the transport of infectious substances assigned to UN 2814 and UN 2900, with any transport operator. The containers fulfilled the toughened test requirements, such as passing a drop test from a height of 9 m. Models of all sizes in the K 470 series can be used to transport substances assigned to UN 3373. Dry ice or other coolants can be used for temperature-controlled transport. ZARGES hazardous goods containers allow clinical specimens to be safely transported to laboratories or research institutes for testing, analysis and identification.


ZARGES hazardous goods packaging approved for Class 6.2 substances can be used to transport clinical specimens suspected of containing coronaviruses (SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19).
