Now That’s Cold: A –50 Celsius Container

Minnesota Thermal Science (MTS) is launching the latest innovation in shipping frozen materials. Credo Series 50M is the world’s first minus 50°C container. It maintains thermal control, for frozen materials without the cost and restrictions of liquid nitrogen or refrigerated freight, for three days.

Transportation of valuable tissue samples and other perishable medical contents is precarious. It is often expensive and environmentally taxing in the face of extended timeframes and unexpected custom delays. Credo Series 50M addresses the needs of international and long-duration shipping of frozen materials. It maintains a temperature of -50°C to ensure contents remain frozen within temperature- range requirements.

Because of its unique thermal isolation chamber surrounded by phase change material, custom formatted to the temperature range, it is environmentally friendly. The vacuum insulation panels forms a continuous barrier on all sides, enabling unrivaled passive thermal control. Credo Series 50M eliminates the need for the environmental risk and expense of dry ice, which is often prohibited in international transport.

MTS provides innovative, scientific solutions for the safe transportation of sensitive tissue, pharmaceutical, blood and biologic products. Credo containers protect contents at defined temperatures longer than any other passive thermal control product available. They are reusable, environmentally friend and deliver strong return on investment.
