Insulated shippers (includes EPS cooler and corrugated shipping box). All insulated shippers are sold individually, in Best Pack quantities or in bulk palletized quantities.

Ordering in Best Pack quantities or multiples thereof will minimize freight rates to your location from Therapak.
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:
|Insulated Shipper Size
||Quantity of 5 mL Vials
||Dry Ice Capacity
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.
