Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco, global provider of temperature-assurance packaging, has launched the new Envoy Diagnostic insulated shipper to ensure proper refrigerated temperature control for diagnostic kits, blood samples, and other diagnostic specimens.
The Envoy Diagnostic product line features the two-day Envoy shipper combined with one of five available diagnostic kits. The system provides the necessary components used in UN DOT, IATA, and USPS certifications for shipping specimens and infectious substances. The entire Envoy Diagnostic series gives consistent 2° to 8° Celsius temperature control while exposed to the real-world ISCsilver® ambient profile, which is representative of the ambient conditions diagnostic specimens are typically exposed to during shipment.
To better target new disease indications and markers, the diagnostic market has been increasing its research and development efforts, as well as performing more tests. To better serve this market, the company combines its Envoy Shipper and ThermoSafe Diagnostic Kits. The pairing of these two products allows customers to receive a complete solution to ensure the thermal integrity of the diagnostic specimens with the lowest total cost.
