Plasma Boxes

Can anyone tell me if the boxes containing the plasma cans were wrapped in a brown (waterproof) paper, or is the card board box all that is visible on the outside. I've been studying the many images and I don't see any seams at the edges. Also was there a card board divider in the center of the bottom box to keep the cans from banging together. Thanks for any information.

The plasma boxes were simply top and bottom sections fitted together. The seam between the two sections was sealed with a tape. There was no other wrapping, at least in the examples I have examined. Also, you are correct regarding the cardboard divider between the two cans.
Hope this helps

Jim,
This site has a great article on plasma with excellent pictures of the boxes. Under "Articles" go to "Medical kits", then "10. Misc. items" and then "2. Blood plasma"
