Temperature-stability validation appraisal: ICEY-TEK coolboxes for the storage and transport of vaccines and temperature-sensitive medications - A report prepared by Severn Ambulance and Medical Services. DOWNLOAD REPORT HERE. Executive Summary below:
"The transport of temperature sensitive medications and vaccines to geographically remote or difficult-to-access areas presents logistic challenges to health providers, especially if externally powered refrigeration units are unavailable or unfeasible. This study seeks to explore the thermal performance of ICEY-TEK coolboxes of varying volumes, in combination with a variety of ice packs and cooling methods.
The results indicated that, in ambient temperatures of up to 20 degrees Centigrade, medications could be passively maintained at <10 degrees Centigrade for in excess of 5 days in certain set-ups. In general,ice-cube cooled boxes outperform gel ‘cool-pack’ cooled boxes, although even with small volume gel ‘cool-pack’ setups an internal temperature of <10 degrees Centigrade could be maintained for on average in excess of 30 hours. This study suggests that the ICEY-TEK boxes may represent a cost-effective and power-independent method of transporting temperature-sensitive medications for extended periods and to remote locations."
