The Koolit Advanced PCM Gel from Cold Chain Technologies provides cold-temperature protection for drugs and vaccines during transport.

A solid phase-change material (PCM) from Cold Chain Technologies (CCT) maintains the integrity of drugs and vaccines during transport. In early use by market-leading pharmaceutical manufacturers, the new Koolit Advanced PCM Gel provides uniform thermal payload protection in a flexible, break-resistant gel pack.

Other PCM gels are not in solid form. Because the new product is a solid in break-resistant packaging, it virtually eliminates concerns about leakage. In addition, the uniform pack provides consistent protection however it is positioned. The gel pack can be used for multiple package sizes and shapes, and it can easily wrap around the corners of a product box. For the distribution floor, this means operational simplicity and flexibility. For the manufacturer, this means cost savings, as fewer PCMs and containers are needed.
