Sonoco ThermoSafe: Reusable ChillTech Shippers

New range of shippers for temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical and biological shipments is launched.

Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco and a global provider of temperature-assurance packaging, has launched a new range of reusable, universal solutions for the pharmaceutical and biologics markets.

ChillTech® is a pre-qualified range of 2°C to 8°C PCM systems providing temperature control from two days up to six days for payloads from 4L to 40L.ChillTech® utilizes Sonoco ThermoSafe’s patented Zero Bench-Time® technology, where systems can be packed-out straight from the freezer, saving customers space, time and money.

The company says similar shippers on the market are qualified for four days and typically use high-value components, which translate into higher costs for customers. These shippers also typically need time outside of the freezer prior to packing out. Each ChillTech has the same pack-out configuration and is used year-round, regardless of season. In addition, following Sonoco ThermoSafe’s philosophy to Embrace Simple®: simply change the outer insulated shipper to switch shipment duration from 48 hours to 96 hours to 144 hours.

“Our ChillTechrange offers 2-day, 4-day and 6-day shippers, something new for this market,” said Vishal Khushalani, director of global marketing and business development, Sonoco ThermoSafe. “Plus, our 2-day solutions will be the first affordable reusable shipping option in the market. Considering that most clinical shipments in each region happen within 48 hours, ChillTech shippers will help customers reduce their total cost of ownership significantly.”

ChillTech products are available globally for purchase or for lease from Sonoco ThermoSafe locations across Europe and North America.
