va-Q-tainers are robust temperature-controlled containers designed for the easy and safe transportation of temperature sensitive goods. Five container sizes are available for six temperature ranges from -70°C to +25°C and will be used as an advanced passive shipping solution, i.e. without external energy input. The units use va-Q-tec’s cutting-edge phase change materials (thermal energy storage components, that absorb and store thermal energy during a freezing or heating process without considerably changing their temperature), ensuring a consistent layer of protection from temperature deviation. As a result, va-Q-tainers do not require the same level of moderation as active shipments throughout the journey, providing deviation-free shipping of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical and biotechnological goods.
