Issues with the traditional use of gel or ice packs include weight and space efficiency and if they fail for any reason valuable consignments (both in human and financial terms) can be lost”.

The judging panel highlighted how “Peli BioThermal has used a material with high latent heat, combined with vacuum insulation panels in a single use shipping carton that can keep contents at a stable temperature for greater than 120 hours. The system offers high reliability, improved performance and weight benefits. It can maintain samples in the temperature ranges of -20 degrees, +2 to +8 degrees, +15 to +25 degrees. Its simple design reduces the potential for human packaging error and makes manufacture more streamlined”.
