The Cold, Hard Facts: What You Need To Know About Thermal Shipping Technologies
This paper presents highlights from a thermal performance study conducted by Modality Solutions LLC. 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 purpose of the study was twofold. First, 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, 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.
