Packaging firm ready for the Covid vaccine rush

[ November 20, 2020   //   ]

Temperature-controlled packaging firm Peli BioThermal has produced a deep frozen range capable of keeping products at between -80°C and -20°C. The new offerings will help pharmaceutical companies and their supply chains to bring Covid-19 vaccines and therapeutics to market, it says.

Product lines that offer deep frozen options include parcel and pallet sizes, as well as single use and reusable temperature controlled shippers. Many are also available through the Crēdoon Demand rental program.

“We know that pharmaceutical companies are in all phases of the development process for vaccines and therapeutics and working tirelessly to bring safe and effective drug products to market quickly,” said Greg Wheatley, vice president of worldwide new product development and engineering at Peli BioThermal. “Our engineering team matched this urgency to ensure they have the correct temperature controlled packaging to meet them where they’re at in drug development for the pandemic recovery, from discovery to distribution.”

The company says its deep frozen solutions are ideal for short-term vaccine storage, courier transport of vaccines from freezer farm hubs to immunization locations and daily vaccine replenishment to remote and rural areas.
