Hardshell shipper delivers blood products safely in Honduras
Credo DURACUBE LT mid-sized hardshell shipping container brings current technology to resource-constrained part of the world.
Global Healing, a nonprofit organization devoted to providing modern medical equipment and supplies to the developing world, announced that Minnesota Thermal Sciences (MTS), donated two Credo DURACUBE™ LT transportation containers for the safe delivery of blood products to rural Honduras.
MTS is a Pelican Products BioPharma Company, and global maker of temperature-controlled packaging. The lightweight and durable Credo DURACUBE LT is reusable and offers thermal protection in a convenient, mid-sized hardshell shipping container. It is qualified to hold room temperature (CRT), refrigerated and frozen medical payloads at a safe temperature for up to seven days—reducing shipping and distribution costs and weathering unexpected delays.
“Global Healing is constantly looking for appropriate technologies that improve access to life-saving products, such as blood, in resource-constrained parts of the world,” says Luke Ifland, president of Global Healing. “We are extremely grateful for the support of MTS to help ensure that blood components arrive safely to the patients in Honduras who need them most.”
“Global Healing’s dedication to healthcare reform is an inspiration and having the opportunity to support their efforts with our thermal packaging makes perfect sense,” adds Kevin Lawler, Vice President of Sales, Minnesota Thermal Science.
Global Healing has worked in the Bay Islands of Honduras since 2003 to improve pediatric care. MTS’s donation assists their renewed effort to expand the scope of assistance to improve the quality, continuity, and measurement of care for children and families in the Bay Islands.
