Pelican BioThermal, a provider of temperature-controlled packaging, announces deep frozen temperature-controlled packaging options with temperature ranges of -80 degrees Celsius to -20 degrees Celsius. This product range is designed to help meet the growing need for increased deep-frozen temperature ranges and payload capacities as pharmaceutical companies and their supply chains prepare to bring COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics to market.
Pelican BioThermal’s reusable Crēdo Cube is meant for -20 degree and -50 degree Celsius temperatures. Through innovation and adaptation, many of the company’s product lines now include a variety of frozen options that cover temperatures of -20, -35, -50, and -80 degrees Celsius.
Product lines that offer deep frozen options include Crēdo Cube, CoolGuard Advance, CoolPal Flex, Sherpa Systems, Crēdo Xtreme and Crēdo Cargo shippers. These lines include parcel and pallet sizes, as well as offer both single use and reusable temperature-controlled shippers, says the company. Many of these expanded temperature ranges are also available through the Crēdo on Demand rental program.
Pelican BioThermal’s deep frozen products use phase change material (PCM) and dry ice systems to provide frozen payload protection meant for durations from 72 hours to 144+ hours. Payload capacities range from 1 to 96 liters for parcel shippers and 371 to 1,686 liters for pallet shippers.
Deep-frozen systems apply to short-term vaccine storage, as well as redirecting courier transport of vaccines from freezer farm hubs to immunization locations and daily vaccine replenishment to remote and rural areas.
