Pelican BioThermal Presents with Canadian Blood Services

Pelican BioThermal Presents with Canadian Blood Services at IQPC’s 14th Annual Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Summit – Canada. Presentation Focuses on Partnership to Create More Efficient Solution

Kai Goellner, Product Development Engineer at Pelican BioThermal, a global leader in temperature-controlled packaging solutions serving the life sciences industry, will present during the 14th Annual Cold Chain GDP & Temperature Management Logistics Summit hosted by IQPC in Toronto, ON. Goellner will be joined by Canadian Blood Services Project Manager, Paul Derksen, to discuss how the two organizations worked together to uniquely configure portable, temperature-controlled solutions to meet Canadian Blood Services’ product transport needs.

“The current container systems that are being replaced at Canadian Blood Services make use of expanded polystyrene insulation and water-based packs,” said Goellner. “There were a number of limitations and challenges with the existing containers and shipping processes, and they were looking for a more robust solution. We knew that our Crēdo Cube™ reusable passive technology could be configured to suit their needs.”

During the session, Goellner and Derksen will discuss:

  • Vendor selection process
  • Partnering with a vendor in the design, development and testing of thermally insulated shipping containers
  • Implementation planning and managing change

“Partnering with Pelican BioThermal will allow us to improve how we will transport critical blood products,” explained Derksen. “The new insulated shipping containers allow us to simplify our processes while maintaining the efficacy of our products by keeping them at the required temperatures during transport.”

Goellner and Derksen will present the session, titled “Developing and Implementing Effective Thermal Packaging Solutions,” at 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, March 3.

Pelican BioThermal, and their Canadian distribution partner, ATS, provides high-performance passive shippers for transportation of pharmaceuticals, clinical trials and medical devices throughout Canada. ATS, the largest, most reputable provider in Canada’s temperature controlled healthcare transportation industry, will also be exhibiting at the IQPC Cold Chain Canada Summit.
