Vacuum insulated cooling box


For consistent temperature transportation of pharmaceuticals and vaccines

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.

IoT connectivity

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.

International transportation

Long cooling times allow for transport from the country of origin to destination without the need for refrigerant transhipment.

Temporary storage

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.
