30ml Boric Acid Containers, 5ml Boric Acid Bijou Vials (urine preservation)

Included in our range, we supply a 30ml red-top boric acid collection container for urine. Used for urine microscopy and culture these containers contain boric acid powder as a preservative. Boric acid holds the bacterial population steady for 50 – 95 hours, and other cellular components remain intact. Boric acid containers should only be used if the urine sample cannot be analysed within 4 hours after collection and should only be used for routine microbiology urine analyses.

Boric acid should never be used for Chlamydia testing, biochemistry tests and urine dip-stick tests. Using a plain sterile universal container is ideal for urine without preservative. It is important to remember that if you are sending urine samples to an outside laboratory, always check their sample requirements. Our Boric acid containers both 30ml and 5ml bijou vials are also supplied in small pack sizes of 10 and larger pack sizes of 100. Labelled and CE marked.
