Twice the Tamper Evidence

Posted: Thursday 15th March 2007

Extending its range of innovative tamper proof plastics, Camlab’s novel “Double Tamper Proof”closure provides secure transport and storage for a wide range of applications including drugs of abuse, raw material testing and forensic sampling.

The introduction of this new secure plastic bottle and cap with its two security rings provides double protection for sample integrity during transportation and storage. The size of the bottle can be tailored to meet individual customer requirements and is provided to customers with the cap in place and the first security seal intact; proof that nothing has been added prior to sampling. Unscrewing the cap and opening the sample bottle releases the first security ring which is retained on the neck of the bottle. The bottle can then be used to collect and store the sample before the cap is replaced and re-sealed. This then engages a second security ring which will break if any attempt is made to tamper with the sample during transit or prior to testing in a controlled environment.

“Initial trials have proved extremely positive”, says Dr Louise Pedlar, Senior Business Development Manager at Camlab. “Our customers particularly like the extra security of knowing the bottle has not been interfered with before or after sampling. In addition, the fact that the rings are retained on the neck provides a good visual indicator and helps to minimise the environmental impact compared to tear-off ring designs.”

Using advanced injection moulding techniques this worldwide patent pending design, has a wide opening that lends itself well to different sized bottles which can be made of a variety of materials.
