Your type A packaging specialist

Radiopharmaceuticals shipped by air or ground transport must be enclosed in certified Type A packaging. Type A packaging is an international regulation issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), to assure the safety of both the radiopharmaceuticals and the people that are involved in the transportation of the radiopharmaceuticals. This packaging consists of multiple components that together ensure safe shipment of your radiopharmaceuticals. We deliver disposable and non-disposable packaging for single or multiple containers. You can reuse our non-disposable packaging, while our single-use disposable packaging is light, easy to use and is designed to be as cost effective as possible.

All our packaging solutions have an optimal integration with the hot cells we build for nuclear medicine & radiopharmacy

Lead containers with finishing

Your certainties

Every year, hundreds of thousands radiation-shielding lead containers leave our factory to protect people against the radiation emitted by radiopharmaceuticals. At the same time, our lead containers ensure that bottles, syringes and capsules containing radioactive substances such as F18, iodine, Lutetium and Gallium are protected against external influences. Regardless of your packaging requirements, Von Gahlen guarantees:

  • Certified Type A packaging
  • Protection of people, environment and product
  • Suitability for all modes of transport (road or air)
  • Single-use and re-usable versions
  • Temperature controlled packaging (if required)
  • Fully tailor-made if desired
