New products take the stage at IQPC Cold Chain Forum
Is your shipper bear-proof?
For several years now, life sciences
logistics managers could count on new
products to address evolving needs in
temperature-controlled shipping of pharma,
biotech and med device products; that trend
was being accelerated at this year's IQPC
Global Cold Chain Forum (Boston, MA,
Sept. 26-30). Vendors are not only unveiling
new products, they're also previewing future
products in this increasingly competitive
specialized market.
Cases in point:

shown by, among others, SenseGeni and
OceaSoft. Both companies back up these
devices with data-collection systems that
employ Bluetooth or similar short-range
communications to enable data to be
transmitted with minimal effort. (Both also

tout the ability to make this linkage through
a smartphone, which can then transmit the
data to a cloud-based database.)
Business moves
A similar level of high activity is

occurring on the business front among these
vendors. In addition to acquiring the rights
to PharmaPort, Sonoco ThermoSafe has
also acquired a European packaging vendor,

Pelican BioThermal has expanded
its Chronos line of single-use, passive
containers from sizes of 6 to 96 liters, with
packout designs for both 2-8°C and 15-25°C
temperature ranges. The company is also
displaying its TIC indicator, a temperature
sensor embedded in the insulation panels of
a container to enable speedy verification of
pre-conditioning.
Sonoco ThermoSafe is resurrecting, in
a fashion, the PharmaPort "semi-active"
unit-load device for air cargo, which had
been introduced years ago, underwent a
couple changes in ownership, and now will
complement the company's extensive line
of single-use, passive containers. Sonoco
ThermoSafe acquired the intellectual
property and marketing rights last month;
new units will continue to be constructed by
AAR, an air-equipment and maintenance
company that also provides a global service
network for PharmaPort users.
Jarden Life Sciences will have its new
ePUR passive containers on display; the
technology features a reformulated version
of polyurethane (PUR) insulation that is
lower in weight, but higher in insulation
properties, than conventional PURs,
according to the company.
S ensite c h, a leader in e le c t ronic
dataloggers for cold chain shipping, will be
displaying its TempTale 4 GEO unit, which
adds geolocation reporting to the condition
monitoring it has performed for years.
Q Products and TP3 Globa l, two
leaders in thermal blanketing technology,
are announcing a collaborative agreement,
which is expected to "result in a wide range
of value-added programs, an advanced
technologies division and a world class
customer experience," according to a joint
statement from the two organizations.
Q Products is known for its CargoQuilt
and PalletQuilt brands; TP3 for Silverskin
blankets. Thermal blanketing is reportedly
taking off in the market as life sciences
suppliers adjust to the need for a higher
degree of control over ambient-condition
shipping, i.e., the need to establish technical
and process capabilities for controlled roomtemperature shipping (which is essentially
everything except refrigerated shipping).
Lower-cost electronic temperature
indicators, which could be reused but are
economical as single-use devices, will be
