Versapak help transport vital medical samples and supplies by drone

Versapak help transport vital medical samples and supplies by drone

Apian is a healthcare drone initiative, founded by NHS Doctors in training.  In October 2020, the UK Space Agency backed Apian’s drone trial, and since then they have partnered with many NHS trusts. 

The Challenge

Apian’s mission is to create a faster, more dependable, and environmentally friendly way to transport medical supplies and pathology tests. 

Apian needed a UN3373 compliant carrier to put inside their drone to transport Covid-19 samples and test kits, and they contacted Versapak for help. 

The Solution

Versapak was delighted to help and met with Apian straight away to discuss their exact requirements and offer a range of potential solutions.  Apian brought one of their drones into Versapak’s headquarters to check the size of potential carriers and Versapak’s small, insulated pathology transport bag fitted perfectly inside the drone. 

Versapak Medical Carriers incorporate VersaShield Antimicrobial Protection to prevent infection, they are made using the highest-quality insulated materials and are UN3373 compliant - providing the perfect solution to transport Covid-19 samples.  They also feature a unique tamper evident locking mechanism with T2 security seal ensuring that the contents of the carrier remain tamper free.

The Result

Versapak is proud to have been involved in such a worthy project and look forward to assisting Apian again in the future.

“Our stakeholders can be assured that the medical supplies we transport are in the very best of care with Versapak’s leading UN3373 compliant insulated containers. Versapak’s technology will be further utilised when we extend our service to other healthcare related use cases within some of our national NHS projects.” Harry Howe, Business Development Manager at Apian.”
