Peli BioThermal has expanded its reusable Crēdo Cube Dry Ice Range.
The company said its range of five new Crēdo Cube Dry Ice shippers deliver deep frozen payload protection for durations of 144 hours.
The range of shippers offers payload volumes between 1.8 litres to 55 litres and a temperature of minus 80 degrees Celsius to minus 60 degrees Celsius.
By utilising the VIP (Vacuum Insulation Panels) technology pioneered by Crēdo Cube shippers, dry ice sublimation is designed to be minimised, while the correct temperature is maintained at all phases of distribution.
Additionally, Crēdo Cube’s payload to volume ratio means less dry ice is required, which helps lower operation and transport costs.
The additional Crēdo Cube Dry Ice portfolio products are expected to help ease the current dry ice shortages impacting the pharmaceutical logistics industry.
These products are anticipated to help meet the growing demand to transport temperature-sensitive biologics and time-sensitive cell and gene therapies safely to patients.
The new deep-frozen solutions could be used for short-term vaccine storage, courier transport of vaccines from freezer farm hubs to immunisation locations and daily vaccine replenishment to remote and rural areas.
Peli BioThermal product manager Lee Stopher noted: “With dry ice shortages causing issues within the supply chain infrastructure, our Crēdo Cube Dry Ice range can help address this ongoing problem.
“The product’s highly efficient VIP insulation reduces and in some cases eliminates the need for in-transit topping up of dry ice, which reduces cost and the potential for temperature excursions.
“Together with the legendary high-performance, reliability and reusability of Crēdo Cube, users can feel confident that their high-value, life-saving pharmaceuticals and biologics will arrive at their destination in perfect condition.”
