When COVID-19 turned the world upside down, it also sparked an immense amount of innovation. What individuals and businesses thought was impossible previously turned possible, and what wasn’t a priority before soon became urgent.
The pace at which COVID-19 vaccines moved from clinical trials to commercialization is unprecedented. It put strain on a supply chain that was not equipped to handle vaccines that required deep frozen temperatures and at a volume greater than most shipments for commercial pharmaceutical products. Technology and infrastructure needed to adapt quickly.
Peli BioThermal's Engineering Team responded by designing a Dry Ice version of their Crēdo™ Cargo passive bulk shipper. Known for its lightweight, sturdy design with tough external wall construction to absorb and deflect impacts, they created a new passive system that achieves deep frozen temperatures for a minimum of 84 hours with dry ice.
