Pelican BioThermal introduces new critical care blood transport container

MDBR Staff Writer Published 18 August 2016

Pelican BioThermal has introduced new critical care transport container, Golden Hour Medic, which enables military personnel to carry life-saving whole blood with them onto the battlefield.

Golden Hour Medic, which features the same technology of Golden Hour Mobile container, is a reusable and portable container that will combat medics to transport blood and other lifesaving materials.

Golden Hour technology has been developed to protect the lives of military personnel on the frontlines by offering smaller-scale thermal containers for blood supplies.

The new container holds capacity to keep whole blood supplies at the required temperature for 24 hours in harsh conditions and up to three days in standard environments.

Pelican BioThermal worldwide sales vice president Kevin Lawler said: “The Golden Hour Medic is the result of our long-standing effort to identify and develop solutions for military field personnel; it supports the need to transport whole blood units far distances while still successfully maintaining blood at the critical temperature around 4 °C.

“We are proud to officially launch the Golden Hour Medic and look forward to playing a pivotal role in the effort to save the lives of troops.”

Pelican BioThermal provides a wide range of temperature-controlled and thermally-protected packaging and service solutions to the life sciences industry.

The company offers single-use and reusable temperature-controlled packaging options that guarantee the integrity of mobile blood supplies and inventories for blood banks, hospitals, EMT personnel, and first responders.

In addition, the firm offers a portfolio of services and software to support end-to-end temperature-controlled packaging asset management.
