Gel packs and Ice packs are used inside cool boxes during storage and transportation of temperature sensitive material such as medicines, vaccines, body tissues, blood etc. These are mainly for usage in healthcare, life sciences, research segment etc. including medicines between 2°C to 8°C. We can also use these for transportation of temperature-sensitive food items inside cool boxes.

How to use the Gel Packs & Ice Packs?
These are to be used inside passive cold boxes (thermal insulated boxes) used for transportation of medicine, vaccines and other temperature sensitive items. The Gel packs have to be precooled inside a cold room or freezer before usage. The Passive Box has to be brought to the cold room. To start with, the precooled Ice packs or Gel packs have to be placed inside the box at the bottom. Thereafter the packs have to be placed inside on all side walls of the boxes. thereafter place the medicine inside the box. Then place the Gel or Ice packs at the top also and then close the box. Now the box is ready for shipment. If you would require, you can place a multi-use data logger or single-use data logger to record the temperature inside the box.

Hi There, I transport vaccines to and from schools. I am having trouble with ice packs which do not hold their cool temperature. Also, if we’re not careful, some ice packs can freeze the vaccines.
Is a gel pack better than an ice pack? How much do they cost?
Would you have a small mobile fridge operated by rechargeable battery? This might retain the 2-8 degree temperature requirement better.
Thank you for your advice.
Ice packs are absolutely not to be used since ice is at zero Deg Centigrade. The Gel packs are ideal since you can precool the same to your desired temperature and use for transportation. What is your longest duration of transportation? If it is couple of hours, it is economical to use gel packs only.
