Meeting your evolving requirements
Whether you need temperature-controlled solutions to keep medical materials within range over great distances, or require a custom-built container to protect a delicate prototype, our packaging experts draw upon decades of experience to ensure that your shipment arrives on time, intact, and within range.
Powered and protected
Active systems use a powered plant to maintain a variety of required temperature ranges. They are available in several payload sizes ranging from one to five EU pallets, the larger of which is represented by our fleet of state-of-the-art refrigerated vehicles. They are a good option when reliable infrastructure is guaranteed over the route.
Passive solutions provide extended temperature stability against a variety of environmental conditions. Passive solutions leverage various insulators—expanded polystyrene (EPS), expanded polyurethane (PUR) and vacuum-insulated panels (VIPs); and a variety of coolants—water/gel packs, dry ice, or phase change materials (PCMs).
For low frozen ranges
Cryogenic shipments use a ‘dry shipper’—a strongly engineered cylindrical metal container enclosed in a rigid outer case. With your samples protected in a safe compartment, the container is filled with nitrogen vapor that maintains internal temperatures between -150° and -180°C for extended periods, and is suitable for air transport routes.
Developing tomorrow's solutions
Transforming volume shipping
Cocoon is a next-generation passive solution built to extend the range of temperature-controlled, pallet-sized shipments. Leveraging the latest developments in VIP and PCM technology, Cocoon provides extended performance without external power or the need to replenish coolant packs. And with zero temperature excursions since launch, Cocoon delivers unprecedented reliability and peace of mind.
Validating your solutions
The researchers at our Climate Optimisation Research and Engineering (CORE) Labs continually evaluate packaging performance in a state-of-the art climate chamber, providing transparent qualification data for both regulatory compliance, and to drive informed packaging selection. CORE Labs developed Cocoon, which has already transformed temperature-controlled shipping. With other innovations currently in development, CORE Labs keeps medicine moving forward.
