Temperature-controlled shippers offered to Japan relief agencies


AcuTemp Thermal Systems, a manufacturer of active and passive containers for transporting temperature sensitive pharmaceutical and life-saving medical products, and CSafe LLC, a provider of active container solutions for the temperature-sensitive airfreight market, are offering relief agencies the use of their temperature controlled containers for shipping and storing blood, vaccines and other temperature critical and sensitive medical supplies for the Japan relief effort.


"We are deeply saddened by the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan," says Brian Kohr, president of AcuTemp Thermal Systems and CSafe LLC. "As we found with our products in the Haitian disaster, our rugged and solid performing cold chain solutions are capable of transporting life saving products into the most stricken and devastated areas. Our company was founded on ensuring that life saving products arrive safely. We know that it is absolutely critical to keep blood, medicines and other medical supplies at the right temperature during transportation and distribution to ensure they are usable."


Products available to relief agencies from AcuTemp include passive insulated shipping boxes and active mobile containers, such as the company's AX56L mobile refrigerator/freezer which can be powered by either AC or battery.


CSafe LLC, provider of the AcuTemp RKN refrigerated pallet sized air cargo container, is making its battery or AC-powered refrigerated unit available to relief agencies and their transport partners. The unit can transport or store large quantities of temperature-controlled medical supplies that are so vital in the life-saving and rescue efforts.


For more information, relief agencies can contact AcuTemp Thermal Systems at 937/312-0114 x251.
