Engineered for the cold supply chain
With built-in wireless vacuum sensor
Designed to meet the challenges of cold chain transportation for biopharmaceuticals, investigational drugs and vaccines that require strict temperature controls, VIXELL features patented vacuum insulation and health-monitoring technology for guaranteed insulation performance, goods protection and long-lasting cooling power.
Keeping your cool
Across country, around the world
Robust structure and long-time cooling
No joints. No cold leakage.
Conventional insulated boxes are manufactured by joining Vacuum Insulated panels (VIPs) together, but cool air commonly leaks through the gaps where the panels join. VIXELL virtually eliminates cold air leakage from joints. How? By doing away with joints altogether.
VIXELL's thermal insulation layer (the most important part of a cooling box) utilises Panasonic's patented Vacuum Insulated Case (VIC) design, a seamless, integrally-moulded body, with no joints.
As a result, -75 °C ± 15 °C can be maintained for up to 18 days.*
* The vacuum insulated cooling box Type-L (AE-V 12 UXR) houses a dry ice thermal storage unit (AE-V 12 DXR) and 34 kg of dry ice is filled in the cooling box and storage box. Including only a simulated product of size 231 x 231 x 40 mm, measure the number of days the temperature is maintained at 30 °C and -75 °C ± 15 °C.
Strength and stamina
Protection from drops and vibrations
Unlike VIPs, which are covered in a thin layer of aluminium and plastic film, the VIXELL cooling box is covered in a plastic sheet layer. This gives it outstanding durability and resistance to cracks. Both inside and out are protected by a 'buffer' layer, helping reduce the risk of damage should the box be subjected to drops or vibrations during transportation.
Even if the dry ice sublimates and reduces in volume, VIXELL's buffer layer prevents the storage area carrying the contents from bumping into the outer case.
Wireless in-box health monitoring
For pre-journey peace of mind
Transporation or long-term use very often damages or deteriorates traditional vacuum insulation products, diminishing their insulation performance.
VIXELL's VIC is equipped with a wireless vacuum sensor unit that uses contactless power supply technology, so its thermal insulation performance can be easily checked before a journey. Simply place the box on a dedicated inspection board.
Adaptable to different temperature zones
Thinking inside the box
Appropriate transportation temperatures are determined by the type of drugs and vaccines in question. With traditional coolers, it can often be necessary to change the outer box for each and every set temperature range.
But with VIXELL, the same outer box can cater for a wide range of temperature zones (to approx. -70°C, approx -20°C, 2°C - 8°C, 15°C - 25°C) by simply changing the inner thermal storage unit. Conserving resources, and enhancing work efficiency.
Monitor internal conditions, externally
Unlike conventional VIPs - which are covered in aluminium film - VICs allow the transmission of radio waves, so the VIXELL cool box and easily connect to IoT devices. By installing temperature or GPS sensors inside, users can monitor the internal condition of the box without having to open it.
VIXELL transportation in action
Last mile transporation to medical facilities
Ultimate cooling performance and built-in wireless vacuum sensor for pre-journery insulation inspection, means products can be tranported to multiple destinations safely.
Long cooling times allow for transport from the country of origin to destination without the need for refrigerant transhipment.
Use for temporary storage of medical supplies in cases of power outages due to natural disasters.
Direct-to-Patient (DtP) transport
Transport refrigerated and investigational products when patients and/or experiment subjects cannot visit the hospital or medical centre.
