Exclusive partnership brings instant advantages for temperature controlled supply

Voorhout (The Netherlands), 20th January 2015 -Global partners Topa Thermal Packaging and Cold Chain Technologies have now entered into an exclusive supply partnership with NanoCool LLC.

This new partnership will mean further expansion of the well-known GTS thermal packaging line of products, to include a packaging range called KoolTemp® GTS Instant. Each GTS Instant will use the innovative NanoCool® "push button" temperature control technology, to maintain +2°C to +8°C for durations up to 96 hours, with no preconditioning of materials needed.

GTS Instant’s evaporative cooling is seven times more powerful than gel packs or ice and works by transferring internal heat to the outside through evaporation of a small amount of water stored at low pressure inside the package. The addition of this technology offers significant advantages in reduced size, weight and cost, and can provide the perfect answer to clinical, pharmaceutical and diagnostic specimen distribution and recovery.

With the KoolTemp® GTS Instant available through both Cold Chain Technologies and Topa Thermal Packaging, customers will be provided with the same global supply capabilities which they are used to with the existing KoolTemp® family of products.

"Our clients demand the highest performing thermal packaging solutions that are both easy to use and cost effective. This new product line and strategic global partnership further demonstrates our continued commitment to implementing innovative products that better help our clients in a strict regulatory landscape," states Jamie Chasteen, Senior Product Manager of Cold Chain Technologies.

"There are many scenarios where pre-conditioning of refrigerants is difficult. The KoolTemp GTS Instant allows for ambient storage and push button cooling providing an elegantly simple solution to a complex problem."

Hein Stevens, CEO, Topa Thermal Packaging comments: "As a supplier to the healthcare products industry, it is important that we constantly look for ways to improve product and ultimately patient safety, with packaging solutions that offer high performance and ease of use".

"The addition of NanoCool® technology within our packaging range ensures we continue to be leading providers of innovative packaging solutions and our new KoolTemp® GTS Instant line perfectly achieves our goal of Keeping Safe Simple."

Doug Smith, CTO of NanoCool explains, "We’re very excited that Cold Chain Technologies and Topa Thermal Packaging are now working together to distribute NanoCool products. The reputation, market knowledge and sound customer relationships of these two highly respected companies make them a perfect fit with NanoCool’s technical expertise."
