Vacutainer® Trays

Vacutainer® trays require a lot of protection during transit to minimise damage and ensure the viability of the shipped contents. Trays commonly require narrow but strong walls to securely hold large quantity of vials. To ensure manufacture of these 2-3mm narrow walls a small-bead EPS (expanded polystyrene) grade is required.
