Transport Containers, Thermal Protection, Wet Ice

Definition : Containers designed to provide a cold environment for biologic and/or pharmaceutical products (e.g., blood products, medicines, vaccines) during transportation using frozen water (also known as wet ice) as refrigerant. These containers typically consist of a thermally isolated container with capacity enough for the ice and the wrapped product that are transported together avoiding direct contact between the ice and the products. Wet ice containers are used to preserve biological and pharmaceutical products (e.g., vaccines), keeping their viability for a period of time of a few hours during transportation of products between healthcare facilities or for products intended for use in remote places. Wet ice transport containers may be portable or mobile; dedicated containers intended for blood and blood products transportation are also available.
