Milk Test Sample Shipping Kit

The Easy and Safe Way to Prepare and Send Your Milk Test Samples Shipping Kit
Sending milk test samples for analysis requires to follow a strict protocol, to insure that the the milk sample stays good. There are 2 ways to do this: the hard way, and the easy way.The hard way requires you to find and assemble all the parts needed to build an insulated box. It requires you to procure a box, some styrofoam, cut the styrofoam to the right dimensions to fit inside the box to create an insulated container, order milk test vials with labels, find and buy gel packs, and add reclosable bags. You can imagine how long it would take you to do all this.The easy way to do this is to order a Cratek Supply pre-assembled milk test sample shipping kit. The kits are shipped disassembled, to reduce shipping costs (assembly will be required). We can also ship the kits assembled, but the shipping and handling fees will be higher.
