Plastic baskets, a great alternative to wire medical baskets

8 Jun 2022 / by Fischer Team

The industry of pharmaceuticals and the research into new medicines has been evolving for many years, particularly within Australia's sector. Some of our leading scientific research is done within this sector, helping to find cures for disease and battle common virus'. Within this industry is the requirements for a storage system that can adapt to a vast array of scenarios and can withstand extreme temperatures.

When looking at the specific requirements to ensure that a plastic storage bin will withstand the rigours associated with pharmaceuticals the following components are usually specified:

  • Chemical resistant properties
  • The ability to withstand standard refrigerated temps (-4 to 2 degrees C)
  • Not distort in shape under extreme cold temps (less than -15 degrees C)
  • Be dynamic with changing environments

Fischer's Plastic storage bins and trays, manufactured out of virgin PP material offers chemical resistant properties perfect for the hygiene and containment of spillages and leaks. With a mesh style base design as seen in figure 1, we see features that compliment your pharmaceutical storage needs and can increase efficiencies within the pharmacy systems.

Not only will a high-quality product as seen withstand the extreme temperature environment without distorting in shape and losing it's practical ability, but will also allow for the necessary airflow within a refrigeration room to adequately treat each product and allow for circulation within the space.
