Biomedical packaging is done for the safe transportation of medical supplies, genetically modified specimens and biological specimens through air, sea, rails. These biomedical products are generally transported after much consultation with laboratories and health professionals to secure safe ways for the transportation process. Depending on the type of biomedical specimen, packaging is done accordingly. Biomedical specimens that are transported are classifies into three categories, commonly by the companies based on their safety guarantees: Category A includes those that are listed as infectious and are dangerous to public health, which upon exposure can prove to be fatal to life; Category B includes those that are diagnostic and not classified under Category A and pose no harm to life; Biological samples such as stem cells, bone marrows, bone medulla, cornea and so on. On the basis of contact with segment, it can be segregated into Primary and Secondary packaging. On the basis of rigidity of packaging, they can be classified into Rigid and Flexible packaging. During the transportation, it is to be assured that there be no leakages, samples and specimens are stored under proper and appropriate temperatures, specialised technical support and adherence to the regulations of various regulatory bodies. Many of the packaging requires cold storage and dry ice is used for the purpose. Cryogenic packaging is one of the widely used forms of packaging. The different types of products in biomedical packaging are Bio-Medical Waste Bins, Bio-Bottles, Bio-Hazard Bags, and Temperature Controlled Kits among many others.
