The Compact PET Shipping System for Vial Pigs is designed to transport a 10 ml or 30 ml vial containing high-energy radionuclides. Designed to conserve space and minimize weight, the entire system weighs only 50 lb. An important feature is that the shipping container can be placed at a convenient height while the pig is easily removed from the shipping case. For added safety and convenience, the vial pig can then be placed in the 042-466 Dose Drawing System for drawing doses from the vial.

The system meets DOT II Type A packaging requirements when shipping up to 2.5 Ci (92.5 GBq) of FDG F-18.
