Cold Chain Certainty From the First Mile to the Last Mile to the Point of Use
FRANKLIN, Mass., March 30, 2021 — Cold Chain Technologies, one of the most comprehensive global provider of reusable and single-use thermal packaging solutions for the shipment of temperature-sensitive material, today announced that it is partnering with B Medical Systems, a Luxembourg-based manufacturer and global distributor of medical refrigeration and durable vaccine cold chain technology, to bring end-to-end thermal shipping and storage solutions to the life science market. The partnership expands Cold Chain Technologies’ portfolio to include hand-carry transport solutions as well as active and passive temperature-controlled storage solutions such as ultra-low freezers, medical-grade refrigerators and freezers, extending the reach of Cold Chain Technologies’ thermal shipping and storage offerings.
“More and more of our customers, especially those providing specialty pharmacy services, are in need of high-quality medical refrigeration that is on-site — or durable mobile solutions that can travel within a local area. Cold Chain Technologies is proud to partner with B Medical Systems to offer their best-in-class medical refrigeration portfolio, one that meshes seamlessly with Cold Chain Technologies’ full line of thermal packaging solutions,” said Ranjeet Banerjee, CEO of Cold Chain Technologies. “By incorporating B Medical’s refrigeration portfolio into our offerings, not only will we be able to ensure that life-saving therapies make it to the last mile, but we’ll also be able to provide certainty that they make it safely to the patient at the point of use.”
The partnership broadens Cold Chain Technologies’ current offering of pallet and parcel qualified shipping solutions to include stationary refrigerators and freezers — all supported by data and analytics monitoring through Cold Chain Technologies Smart Solutions. Cold Chain Technologies customers can now establish a complete cold chain that begins when biologics are packaged at a manufacturer site, travels through international and regional courier services and remains intact all the way to the point of use — by working with a single vendor. Once delivered to a health system or specialty pharmacy, B Medical Systems’ durable transport options allow for further distribution to infusion clinics, oncology suites and hand delivery direct to patient homes.
“B Medical Systems is delighted to embark on this partnership with Cold Chain Technologies. Our combined core competencies dovetail perfectly and will create comprehensive solutions for all aspects of medical and life science cold chain distribution,” said Matt Tallman, Head of Sales – North America.
