Envirotainer has opened a new CryoSure station in Singapore that expands the global availability of the ultra-cold solution for the transportation of medicines at -70°C.
The new station for the cold chain solutions specialist for pharma airfreight shipments sits near Singapore Changi Airport, a major hub for Asia and Pacific (APAC).
The new site complements Envirotainer’s existing presence in Singapore and allows express orders throughout APAC, while providing customers with more efficient logistics.
Expansion of the network will continue, confirmed Envirotainer.
Fredrik Linnér, chief business development, said: “We’ve led the way in temperature-controlled shipments for decades and the expansion of our global CryoSure network is another first.
“The solution fills a substantial gap in the cryogenic -70°C shipment market and its availability in the APAC region illustrates our ability and reach in a fast-growing and vitally important market.”
Designed with extreme demands in mind, CryoSure is suitable for ultra-cold chain uses such as cell and gene therapies, one of the fastest-growing markets in the life sciences sector.
The solution comprises a range of dewars with a duration of up to three weeks without the need for refilling dry ice.
Heat resistant, the reusable dewars are designed to have minimum bulk with optimised weight-to-volume efficiency for reduced transportation costs and lower carbon emissions.
