Global temperature assurance packaging provider Sonoco ThermoSafe has launched the new Certis Silver Universal CRT (controlled room temperature) shipper series.

The new containers from Sonoco ThermoSafe, a unit of Sonoco, are used to ensure ambient thermal protection for pharmaceuticals, biologics, vaccines as well as other high-value products.

Sonoco ThermoSafe vice president Russell Grissett said pharmaceuticals and other high-value biologics shipments must maintain stringent temperature control to comply with each product's labelled storage requirements, owing to increasing global regulations.

"A regulatory focus on strict compliance to storage temperature limits has increased the demand for controlled room temperature shipping solutions. The new Certis Silver Universal CRT series has been designed to fulfill this emerging market need," Grissett said.

According to the company, the new Certis Silver Universal CRT Shippers have been design-qualified to its ISCsilver profile.

The containers, which are EPS-insulated, use PureTemp improved phase change materials that provide a consistent 15°C to 25°C temperature control for up to four days.

With a capacity to hold a 14l payload for 72-hour duration, the Certis CRT shippers can also hold an 11l payload for 96-hour durations when packed with the same component configuration whatever be the season.

Sonoco ThermoSafe has operations in North America, Europe, Asia and South America and its ISC Labs design and testing services deliver individualised packaging solutions in a bid to meet all regulatory requirements.
