Insulated shippers are available in extra small, small, medium, large and extra large sizes as detailed below. Performance data based on in-house thermal testing of the three most widely used sizes indicated the following results:

Thermal Testing:

Insulated Shipper Size Quantity of 5 mL Vials Dry Ice Capacity Frozen Duration
Small 12 7.6 lbs. 24-28 hours
Medium 24 14 lbs. 36-48 hours
Large 42 25 lbs. 48-54 hours

Extra small cooler - will hold up to two cold packs for a small refrigerated specimen shipment.

Small cooler - most popular size for routine specimen shipments of cold or frozen specimens in clinical trials studies. Can also accommodate one standard 2" or 3" cryostorage box. This is primarily an overnight shipping system for a single patient set of specimen tubes.

Medium - will hold up to two standard 2" or 3" cryostorage boxes. Also ideal for shipping up to five small specimen bags of sample tubes for clinical trial site shipments to a laboratory.

Large - this system will hold up to 25 pounds of dry ice making it suitable for applications that involve frozen transport up to 72 hours. Also use for overnight shipments of multiple patient specimen packages where dry ice capacity may be reduced to accommodate more specimen bags or crystorage boxes.

Extra Large - primarily for International frozen or refrigerated shipments of specimens requiring a high capacity of dry ice that will keep specimens stable for up to 4 days.

Important: Please note that all suggested use comments are estimates based on historical experiences with these shipping systems. Therapak will not guarantee performance of any shipping system.

Duramark® Variable Temperature Shippers

Duramark® Variable Temperature Shippers

  • Reusable
  • Multiple temperature capability
  • Custom print and material colors available

Therapak's integrated variable temperature transport system provides a cost-effective method for shipping samples collected at the clinic, hospital, or physician to a testing laboratory.

The system offers variable temperature compartments within one courier overwrap container. The overwrap container consists of a 4-mm rigid and durable corrugated plastic container (Therapak No. 36520) that is reusable. The overwrap serves as a housing to accept various insulated polyurethane (PUR) coolers with lids. The PUR coolers feature one inch insulation.

Depending on your daily specimen temperature requirements, laboratories or their designated couriers must evaluate the best internal configuration considering you can mix and match the insulated polyurethane (PUR) coolers within the courier overwrap container. There are four (4) interior configurations to choose from based on your temperature and transport requirements.

The thermal efficiencies noted in these interior configurations allow transport of frozen, refrigerated and ambient specimens within one overwrap container. Overwrap container comes with easy-carry handle and features strapless closure system.

Ordering Information:
Order corrugated plastic overwrap and PUR coolers individually or as a complete system to achieve interior configuration objectives for your transport requirements.

Full customization is available for printing on the outside of the overwrap container. Minimum quantity for customization is 24 overwrap containers. Additional charges apply.
