Active cooling boxes are boxes with insulated walls and fitted with a cooling unit. The cooling unit can be connected to normal power supply of 230 V / 110 V AC as well as 12 V / 24V DC supply of

While at the warehouse the box can be connected to AC supply and can be cooled and medicine will be loaded inside. Then the box is loaded into the van or truck and will be connected to the 12 V / 24 V DC power supply the vehicle. At the delivery point, the box is disconnected and carried to the customer and will be unloaded to a cold room /refrigerator. So the box is working on power continuously except during loading and unloading.

The advantage is that transportation of a small payload can be effectively carried out for longer duration.

Qualification of the above boxes also can be carried out. Alternatively we can  supply pre-qualified boxes

What is GDP cold chain validated cool box?

GDP is the short form of Good Distribution Practices, which means recommended distribution practices for temperature sensitive products, especially for medicines, vaccines etc.

The cool boxes being supplied by us can be validated / qualified in linen with GDP cold chain practices. Such boxes are certified that it will withstand recommended temperature (eg 2-8°C) for a certain duration (eg. 24 hours, 48 hours etc.).

Such boxes are tested by the manufacturer in testing chambers and the duration is tested and a test report is issued for each design.

    is re-mapping is needed for passive cold box? since it does not consist of cooling components to determine its efficacy again and again. kindly suggest.

      It has no active components so there is no requirement as per the standards for periodic validation. However you may observe wear and tear especially around the lids which might cause gaps. In this case you may need revalidation.
