Product News Feb 04, 2020
Peli BioThermal, a specialist in temperature-controlled packaging, has announced the acquisition of NanoCool, an Albuquerque, New Mexico-based manufacturer of temperature-controlled packaging solutions. The addition of NanoCool customers, market segments and product technologies could enable Peli BioThermal to expand its access to patients, laboratories and other last-mile players in the distribution of life sciences materials and collection of patient laboratory samples.
“The core competency of Peli BioThermal and NanoCool — innovative temperature-controlled packaging — is very much aligned, but there is little overlap between our market segments and product technologies,” said David Williams, President of Peli BioThermal. “Adding NanoCool’s capabilities to our diverse product line will help fuel our efforts to expand our offerings and bring further innovation to growing sectors of the life sciences industry spanning the globe.”
NanoCool’s evaporative cooling systems are designed to be convenient cold chain shipping containers, with no need to refrigerate or pre-condition, NanoCool packaging can be stored at normal temperatures. A simple push of a button engages the cooling technology and quickly conditions a payload space for shipping biological patient samples and other life science materials. These characteristics, and highly efficient volumetrics, make NanoCool suitable for markets including diagnostic laboratories, clinical supply providers and gene and cell therapy organizations. The company also has a dry-ice friendly parcel shipper and a version of its cooling engine that patients can send in a shipping envelope from their homes.
