Specimen collection containers can be used for collecting urine and faeces samples from animals for analysis as well as, body tissue along with various other samples for laboratory testing. In addition, our range also includes Bijou Vials which are ideal for research and small samples. Furthermore, we offer all of our product range in small pack sizes of 10, right up to larger pack sizes of 400 to suit both small and large veterinary practices and laboratories.

30ml Sample Containers with Spoon (faeces collection)
Our blue-top 30ml universal containers contain a spoon and are used for the collection of faeces samples. These containers are CE marked, Aseptically Produced, labelled and available in pack sizes of 10, 100 and 400.
30ml Boric Acid Containers, 5ml Boric Acid Bijou Vials (urine preservation)
In addition to our range, we also supply a 30ml red-top boric acid containers 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. Most importantly, 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.
Finally, 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.
