Peli BioThermal Announces New CoolGuard™ Range

The new CoolGuard Advance from Peli BioThermal

Newly branded shippers offer excellent efficiency and protection

Peli BioThermal, the global name in temperature controlled packaging, announced it will be rebranding its award-winning Chronos products as the CoolGuard™range. The newly named shippers will replace Chronos Express, which will become CoolGuard™ PCM and Chronos Advance will become CoolGuard™ Advance.

Peli BioThermal president, David Williams, said: “We are excited to unveil the new name and look for our high-performing CoolGuard™products. These shippers are designed to perform exceptionally well at temperature protection for a one-way journey in a challenging shipping lane.

The volumetric efficiency is also excellent, with a favourable ratio of the external dimensions to the internal payload dimensions. As a result, CoolGuard™ shippers offer significant savings on transport and storage. “CoolGuard™ shippers’ components are well-designed and robust, so they could potentially be used for multiple trips, with proper inspection. That will make the CoolGuard™ shippers even more affordable by spreading their initial capital cost out over two, three or even more trips.

This change changes the positioning in our product portfolio of the CoolGuard™ shippers relative to the position held by the Chronos brand.” Any additional transportation trips will also make the CoolGuard™ shippers a more resource-friendly product by eliminating shippers going into recycling and waste streams after their first journey. The CoolGuard™ shippers are made of components that can be recycled or easily placed in the waste stream due to a design that includes no toxic glues or other materials, making them more eco-efficent.

The superior shippers, which will completely replace the Chronos brand by the beginning of July 2019, will offer configurations with fewer components in exchange for shorter durations, making them more affordable for specific shipping lanes. The cold chain shippers will also provide additional temperature set points, such as 16oC, ideal for use in cold ambient conditions for controlled room temperature protection. While providing protection for temperature sensitive life sciences materials being transported worldwide, the revamped range retains its high-performance and long duration.
