When shipping perishables with temperature controlled packaging, you should answer three basic questions about your shipment to ensure the integrity and safety of your product en route to its destination.
- Does your product need to be shipped frozen or chilled?
- What is the mode of transportation and duration of shipment?
- What type of packaging will best maintain temperature consistency?
Temperature controlled packaging offers insulated containers and refrigerant packs in a wide range of sizes to fit your specific application and mode of transport.
For temperature-sensitive perishables such as lab samples, vaccines, biopsy materials, diagnostic kits and culture packs, choose temperature controlled shipping containers with the appropriate wall thickness to maintain low temperature consistency of your product during shipment. The addition of refrigerant packs provides optimum protection for frozen or refrigerated/chilled products.
When ordering insulated shipping cartons, first measure your product by length, width and height, and allow additional space for refrigerant packs to ensure desired temperature during transit.
