Pelican BioThermal has unveiled Chronos Express, a new single-use shipper that uses phase change material.
The shippers are designed to ensure the safe transport of pharmaceuticals, tissue, diagnostics/clinical trials, vaccines and blood samples. They cover temperature ranges +2C to +8C and +15C to +25C and come in five sizes: 6, 12, 28, 56 and 96 liters. They will be available to order in mid-October.
A company press release identifies the PCM as "CoolPhase" but does not provide details. The term is not mentioned on Pelican BioThermal's website and is not listed in the U.S. trademark database.
“This launch follows our successful introduction of Chronos Advance to the global market," said David Williams, president of Pelican BioThermal. "Chronos Express offers the same high performance plus the speed and ease with which the product can be assembled, making for a cost-effective option.”
