Toppan Forms Starts Marketing Medical Healthcare Constant Temperature Transportation Box "Mechacool" for Medical
- Accommodates Two Temperature Zones Refrigeration -

October 31, 2012

Information management solution provider Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. developed the industry's first medical healthcare constant temperature transportation solution "Mechacool" for Medical with a special pocket and will start marketing it in November 2012.

"Mechacool" for Medical is a constant temperature transportation package that combines Mechacool box with special pocket and refrigerant dedicated to handle two temperature zones. The refrigerant is approved by the Japan Maritime Test Association as the industry's first "Non-Flammable Matter" for safe transportation.
Conventional Mechacool box had an over refrigeration issue due to lowering of temperature from the refrigerant taken out immediately from the freezer. The special pocket enables the temperature to be optimum level right after the installation. Furthermore, the newly developed refrigerant allows "plus" temperature range control that was previously difficult. This satisfies the strict temperature management required by the medical sector such as refrigeration (2 ℃ to 8℃) and ambient (15℃ to 25℃) temperature range.
The standard specification is 24 litter type allowing target temperature to be maintained for 54 hours at 30℃ to -20℃ outdoor temperature. The box size and insulator can be customized by application and usage condition.
In the past, the conventional "Mechacool" mainly accommodated low temperature range but with this new product line, the range of temperature control solution has been expanded from freezing to ambient temperature range. For customer who wants peace of mind, the RFID temperature management traceability function can be added to show the visibility of the refrigerated temperature.

Toppan Forms plans to sell one billion yen by 2014 to healthcare sector's temperature controlled transportation operation where strict temperature control is required and customers who need air transportation.
