There’s good reason Peli BioThermal’s patented Golden Hour™ technology received the U.S. Army’s Greatest Invention Award in 2003. Prior to this, there was no effective container to safely transport critical blood to troops fighting in far forward combat areas away from fixed medical facilities. That fundamentally changed when we invented Golden Hour technology — aptly named because it provides troops access to the whole blood, platelets or plasma they need to save lives during the critical first hour after injury.
This innovative thermal transport container protects the products you need no matter the location or extreme conditions on the battlefield. For the last 17 years, military personnel have trusted our technology to securely, reliably and safely transport pharmaceuticals, tissues, biologics, diagnostics, vaccines, blood supplies and more from anywhere in the world — to where they need it most.
The award-winning Original Golden Hour™ technology was developed to protect troops’ lives on the base and on the front line in the harshest of environments and climates. Today, Peli BioThermal’s packaging solutions provide the most reliable, longest temperature control duration on the market — 96 hours of thermal protection. Life-saving materials are housed in smaller, lighter weight, rugged and durable temperature controlled Crēdo™ shipping containers without the need for dry ice or water / gel packs.
Peli BioThermal provides:
- A full range of single use and reusable temperature-controlled packaging options that cover the full range of the military’s needs — chilled, frozen, controlled room temperature (CRT).
- Optimised payload ratio that reduces distribution costs by minimising outer dimensions and maximising interior payload capacity with 100% available for product.
- One hundred percent recyclable components that reduce your impact on the environment.
- A web-based asset management software solution (Crēdo ProEnvision) to track individual shipments around the globe, set up automatic maintenance, next shipments alerts and produce customisable reports.
