NASA has awarded Scentroid a contract to provide Stainless Steel sample bags for use in the next MARS mission. Following protocol established in the 1970s, NASA is required to store and sterilize all samples transported back to earth, only to be opened in a quarantined and sealed room in order to protect against extra-terrestrial bacteria.
Scentroid’s stainless steel bags are being tested in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to be integrated along with an electron beam sterilization system for transportation of rock samples back to earth. We are very excited to help keep earth free of Martian bacteria. Read more about SS Bags here
