Intelsius Adds to Line of Biotherm Packaging Systems
Intelsius, a global manufacturer and distributor of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, has added two new Category A shipping systems to its existing line of Biotherm packaging solutions. The new Biotherm 7 and Biotherm 14 systems were developed using a patent-pending process that is designed to optimize shipping volume and minimize freight costs. Systems are also prequalified to maintain sample integrity during dry ice shipments for up to 240 hours.
Biotherm Category A shipping systems are designed to comply with IATA, ADR, and 49 CFR (DOT) for the transport of infectious substances. To become certified, the complete system was put through a number of stress tests, including puncture tests, pressure tests, rain exposure, and drop tests from a height of nine meters.
“By adding the new Biotherm Category A certified systems to our existing product offerings, we are now able to offer our customers more shipping solutions for their transportation needs,” said David Walsh, Founder and CEO of Intelsius, in a press release. “With the growth of global research initiatives, these highperformance solutions will be a true asset to the global research and development community.”
Biotherm has an ergonomic design that features carry handles to enable careful handling throughout the cold-chain shipping process. The design is intended to help users reduce the associated risk of lifting heavy, bulky boxes. In addition, the shippers have a tongue and groove lid that provides quick assembly while ensuring optimal performance.
The Biotherm system is supplied with Pathopouch, a leak-proof secondary container that was tested to ensure optimal protection for a wide range of samples, including blood tubes, specimen containers, swabs, and medical devices. It is designed to comply with the latest IATA guidelines.
