Thermo Scientific™ single-use systems are commonly used to store and transport sterile process liquids, buffers, culture media, and bulk drug precursors. Our portfolio of shipping-validated outer support containers includes large volume stainless steel containers, plastic bins, and cylindrical drums.

These containers are designed to hold Thermo Scientific™ bioprocess containers (BPCs), and to support your transportation and liquid handling needs in biopharmaceutical and biomanufacturing applications.

For custom media or standard liquids needs, we routinely deliver liquid media and buffers in our BPCs in outer support containers to customers around the world.
