Compact PET Shipping System for One Unit Dose Pig
For shipping syringes with or without needles attached.
This Compact PET Shipping System transports one 3 cc or 5 cc syringe containing high-energy radionuclides such as FDG F-18. Syringes fit into the pig with or without an attached needle. Designed to conserve space and minimize weight, the fully loaded shipping container weighs less than 40 lb. An important feature is that the shipping container can be left at a convenient height while the pig (9 pounds) can be easily removed from the container. The pig is then placed behind an L-Block for dose loading and unloading. All PET L-Block Shields incorporate a hex-shaped plate that corresponds with the hex shape at the base of the pig. This design element allows one-handed loading and unloading of pigs.
The 001-785 Unit Dose Pig is encapsulated in high-impact polycarbonate and polypropylene, making the pig durable, easy to clean and compatible with automatic washing systems. A single twist opens or closes the pig, reducing handling time.
The system meets DOT II Type A packaging requirements when shipping up to 500 mCi of FDG F-18.
