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° to 8° C PCM (pharmaceutical case management) systems providing exceptional temperature control from two days up to six days for payloads from 4 to 40 liters. It utilizes Sonoco ThermoSafe’s patented Zero Bench-Time technology, where systems can be packed out straight from the freezer, saving space, time and money.
Similar shippers on the market are qualified for just four days and typically use high-value components, translating into higher costs for customers. These shippers also typically need time outside the freezer prior to packing out, making Sonoco ThermoSafe’s Zero Bench-Time technology a real benefit. Each ChillTech solution 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 to 96 to 144 hours.
“Our ChillTech range offers two-day, four-day and six-day shippers, something new for this market,” said Vishal Khushalani, director of global marketing and business development, Sonoco ThermoSafe. “Plus, our two-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. To learn more about the ChillTech range, visit www.thermosafe.com/chilltech.
