RGEES introduced a new line of temperature-controlled specimen transporters this week at CleanMed 2016 in Dallas.
The Akuratemp line is available in frozen (below -20° C), chilled (2-8° C), room temperature (15°C to 25°C) and incubating (37° C) temperature ranges. The ranges cover applications in clinical trials, diagnostic specimens, direct-to-patient and direct-to-lab deliveries. The transporter consists of an insulated carton, two color-coded packs containing phase change material, shown here, an optional real-time data logger and an outer sleeve.
The company, based in Arden, N.C., says the "environmentally friendly" shippers will maintain temperatures for up to 72 hours, use non-petroleum phase-change technology and have reuseable components.
