As the name suggests, active packaging systems are able to maintain the required temperature parameters of pharmaceutical shipments more independently than others.
UGL’s active packaging systems can control the temperature of pharmaceuticals and withstand dramatic fluctuations in external temperatures using a variety of methods. Some may have a heating and/or cooling system built in, or may work using dry ice as a coolant and system to push cool air into the payload area to maintain a specific set temperature.
Our active containers are proven to work effectively within specific temperature parameters – ranging from -20°C to +30°C.
If during transit the temperature begins to fall outside the range, batteries are replenished or the system may have an added feature that enables it to be plugged in during a delay to maintain operation. As a result, our active packaging solutions guarantee that there will not be any temperature excursion.
There are three areas which will help you decide. We have prepared 3 checklists for you.
