Cold Chain Technologies (CCT), the trusted global experts in temperature-sensitive distribution solutions for all segments of the life sciences supply chain, today launched the first solid phase change material (PCM) to maintain the integrity of drugs and vaccines during transport. In early use by market-leading pharmaceutical manufacturers, the new Koolit® Advanced PCM Gel provides uniform thermal payload protection in a flexible, break-resistant gel pack. CCT will demonstrate this from booth 314 at the Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Global Forum, Sept. 26-30 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA.
"This solution defines the new state of the art for the safe shipment of drugs, vaccines and clinical trials. Gelled PCM delivers extraordinary temperature control, protection, and efficiency, and it's been a vision of the pharmaceutical packaging industry for some time," said T.J. Rizzo, Senior Vice President, Global Commercial Operations, CCT.
• It's a solid, uniform pack which provides consistent protection however it is positioned.
• The solid material and break-resistant packaging virtually eliminate concerns about leakage.
• The gel pack has outstanding modularity - It can be used for multiple package sizes and shapes, and it can easily wrap around the corners of a product box. For the distribution floor, this means operational simplicity and flexibility. For the manufacturer, this means cost savings, as fewer PCMs and containers are needed.
