Compatible with the Porta Thermal Vaccine Bag Range
Rigid bottle design
150mm x 150mm
Pharmachill Coolant Block - Large
When using our Medium Porta Thermal Vaccine Carry Bag, we recommend using coolant blocks to extend the time in which vaccines and medicines are kept in cold chain on the go. They can be chilled or frozen before inserting inside the bag to maintain the temperature. These Pharmachill Coolant Blocks offer a rigid bottle design which provides a core chilling component inside the bag.
Pharmachill Coolant Blocks come in a rigid, plastic format, with a non-toxic, water-based PCM. This makes them ideal for 2-8˚C and 15-25˚C solutions. They are extremely durable, making them wholly reusable, therefore providing a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly alternative to other gel options. As an added advantage the rigidity means the blocks can remain upright in the sides of the bag to add insulation and constant cooling.
These blocks are commonly used in medical practice outside a hospital or medical environment, for example in community immunisation projects. This is particularly useful when they are opened several times in an outreach session. Using coolant blocks and gels helps to maintain temperatures inside insulated bags, and measuring 15cm x 15cm, they fit neatly into our medium Porta Thermal Vaccine Carry Bags. Multiple can be used in a single Porta-Thermal bag (depending on its size) to extend time in cold chain even further. We have made recommendations for how many on each of our vaccine bag product pages.
