CLAIMS

In the claims:

1. A material storage and transport system, comprising:

a material storage tray, forming an open-top storage volume defined by a bottom and walls extending up from the bottom along a perimeter of the bottom;

a releasable strap adapted to extend across the bottom in a securing configuration;

a lid element adapted to (i) fit within the storage volume when arranged parallel to the bottom, and (ii) be secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.

2. The material storage and transport system of claim 1, further comprising a sample carrier, comprising at least one sample secured to a sample support substrate by a molded sheet.

3. The material storage and transport system of claim 2, wherein the molded sheet is secured to the sample support substrate by adhesive.

4. The material storage and transport system of claim 3, wherein the lid element includes a first lid edge comprising a first strap notch and a second lid edge, opposite the first lid edge, wherein said second lid edge comprises a second strap notch, wherein said first strap notch and said second strap notch are adapted for receiving the releasable strap when the lid element is secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.

5. The material storage and transport system of claim 4, wherein said sample carrier is adapted to fit between the bottom and the lid element when the lid element is secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.

6. The material storage and transport system of claim 5, wherein the lid element is formed of a corrugated material.

7. The material storage and transport system of claim 1, wherein the lid element includes a first lid edge comprising a first strap notch and a second lid edge, opposite the first lid edge, wherein said second lid edge comprises a second strap notch, wherein said first strap notch and said second strap notch are adapted for receiving the releasable strap when the lid element is secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.

8. The material storage and transport system of claim 7, further comprising a sample carrier, comprising at least one sample secured to a sample support substrate by a molded sheet, wherein said sample carrier is adapted to fit between the bottom and the lid element when the lid element is secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.

9. The material storage and transport system of claim 1, wherein the walls comprise a first end wall and a second end wall opposite the first end wall;

wherein the releasable strap comprises a first strap element and a second strap element; wherein a proximal portion of the first strap element is attached to the first end wall and a proximal portion of the second strap element is attached to the second end wall, and

wherein distal portions of the first and second strap elements releasably couple with one another.

10. The material storage and transport system of claim 9, wherein the first end wall comprises a pull tab opening and a pull tab strip extends through the pull tab opening to form a pull tab outside the material storage tray.

11. The material storage and transport system of claim 9, wherein a portion of the first strap element is the pull tab strip.

12. The material storage and transport system of claim 9, wherein the walls further comprise a first side wall and a second side wall opposite the first side wall, wherein the first side wall comprises a pull tab opening and a pull tab strip extends through the pull tab opening to form a pull tab outside the material storage tray.

13. The material storage and transport system of claim 9, wherein the first end wall is formed by a first end lip and the second end wall is formed by a second end lip;

wherein a first end fold line is located between the bottom and the first end lip and a first end free edge includes at least one first end lip tab, wherein at least one first end tab slot is located adjacent to the first end fold line;

wherein a second end fold line is located between the bottom and the second end lip and a second end free edge includes at least one second end lip tab, wherein at least one second end tab slot is located adjacent to the second end fold line;

wherein the at least one first end tab slots are adapted for receiving the at least one first end lip tabs when the first end lip is folded up then in half toward the bottom; and

wherein the at least one second end tab slots are adapted for receiving the at least one second end lip tabs when the second end lip is folded up then in half toward the bottom.

14. The material storage and transport system of claim 13, wherein the walls further comprise a first side wall and a second side wall opposite the first side wall.

15. The material storage and transport system of claim 14, wherein the perimeter has a rectangular shape.

16. The material storage and transport system of claim 14, wherein the first side wall is formed by a first side lip and the second side wall is formed by a second side lip;

wherein a first side fold line is located between the bottom and the first side lip and a first side free edge includes at least one first side lip tab, wherein at least one first side tab slot is located adjacent to the first side fold line;

wherein a second side fold line is located between the bottom and the second side lip and a second side free edge includes at least one second side lip tab, wherein at least one second side tab slot is located adjacent to the second side fold line;

wherein the at least one first side tab slots are adapted for receiving the at least one first side lip tabs when the first side lip is folded up then in half toward the bottom; and

wherein the at least one second side tab slots are adapted for receiving the at least one second side lip tabs when the second side lip is folded up then in half toward the bottom.

17. The material storage and transport system of claim 16, wherein the first side lip comprises two opposing first side wing tabs extending outward from edges of the first side lip, and the second side lip comprises two opposing second side wing tabs extending outward from edges of the second side lip;

wherein one first side wing tab and one second side wing tab are adapted to fit within a void formed when the at least one first end lip tabs are received by the at least one first end tab slots; and

wherein the other first side wing tab and the other second side wing tab are adapted to fit within a void formed when the at least one second end lip tabs are received by the at least one second end tab slots.

18. The material storage and transport system of claim 14, further comprising a sample carrier, comprising at least one sample secured to a sample support substrate by a molded sheet.

19. The material storage and transport system of claim 18, wherein the lid element includes a first lid edge comprising a first strap notch and a second lid edge, opposite the first lid edge, wherein said second lid edge comprises a second strap notch, wherein said first strap notch and said second strap notch are adapted for receiving the releasable strap when the lid element is secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.

20. The material storage and transport system of claim 19, wherein said sample carrier is adapted to fit between the bottom and the lid element when the lid element is secured to the material storage tray by the releasable strap.
