Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Modality Solutions, a privately-held company that delivers integrated cold chain management solutions for highly regulated industries, released its white paper “The Cold Hard Facts: What You Need to Know About Thermal Shipping Technologies” at the 11th Annual Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Global Forum held in Chicago, Illinois from September 30 through October 4, 2013.
Authored by Modality Solutions’ President, Gary Hutchinson, this white paper presents highlights from a thermal performance study conducted by Modality Solutions. The study examined the performance of five shipping technologies commonly used by specialty pharmacies to transport high-value refrigerated specialty medicines against an industry-accepted temperature profile standard.
The Modality Solutions thermal shipping white paper study’s purpose was twofold. First, to evaluate five commonly used shipping technologies for thermal control performance to assess how well they maintained a specific temperature range within a 24-hour period. Second, to assess the value of a visual indicator to show conformance to a predetermined temperature range and threshold; if a shipment took longer than the 24 hours the shipping system claimed for temperature control, an indicator technology could provide additional monitoring. The following commonly used shipping systems were tested: insulated bubble bag; insulated envelope; insulated box liner; EPS panel sheet cooler; and EPS molded cooler.
The study examined performance of the technologies during seasonal extremes of winter and summer as simulated by ISTA 7D thermal profiles. An addition
