Designed to withstand temperatures of between 2 and 8°C, our 10, 20 and 30 litre carry bags are perfectly designed to suit vaccination programs as they can keep products stored at safe temperatures for up to 8 hours, all without the use of a cooling agent. These bags are durable, lightweight, easy to store and can hold a wide range of packaged pharmaceuticals, not just one specific product.
Developed using NASA technology, Polartherm™ is made up of an inner reflective layer, a hollow fibre filler and a waterproof woven PVC outer layer, creating a tough and lightweight material with excellent thermal control properties. Its inner lid also reduces thermal leakage, which helps to maintain a steady temperature, despite repeated opening of the bag. These carry bags are available in a range of colours and sizes to meet your specific transportation needs, and they have been tried, tested and fully approved by the NHS and the Health Safety Executive (HSE).
While our bags have been proven to keep products cool at safe temperatures, we still advise customers to use our 5°C cool packs to help keep the temperature in the bag stable, particularly if transporting vaccines. All you need to do is place a cool pack on top of and underneath the samples and then, ideally, one on each side. We also suggest that if you need to open the bag repeatedly, simply place thermal separators between each layer of vaccines, to reduce the risk of temperature-elevation when opening the bag. We also recommend that if you must open the bag repeatedly, to do so quickly and only to remove the vaccines.
Trusted by renowned companies such as Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Roche, Polar Thermal’s carry bags are perfect for keeping perishable pharmaceuticals at cool temperatures for prolonged periods of time. With a wide range of designs to choose from, our products are ready to assist you in the safe distribution of vaccines and other vital medical supplies to communities worldwide.
