Toppan Forms Commercializes Industry's First Caster Wheeled Cool Box with Internal Swing Mechanism
- Dedicated for Test Tubes and Petri Dish for Blood, Reagent, and Investigational New Drugs -

June 21, 2013

Information Management Solution Provider, Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) begins to market today a "sustainable temperature cool box with caster wheel" employing industry's first (according to Toppan Forms) transportation tray dedicated for test tube and petri dish, as a new line item for sustainable temperature transportation solution using high performing refrigerant "Mechacool".
The construction of the transportation tray comes with a swing mechanism that keeps transported contents to be constantly leveled inside the cool box. Putting this mechanism into a caster wheel cool box prevents leakage and deformation of contents allowing easy sustainable temperature transportation.

There is a strong need to transport precious sample drugs, investigational new drugs, and clinical specimens safely without damaging the quality. Clinical inspection contractors collect bloods taken at the hospital and conduct analysis at the lab. Blood samples need sustainable temperature transportation. Normally they are collected using cool box with refrigerant installed inside which is a heavy burden to carry around several hospitals in a day - especially for women. Occasionally, during the transportation, blood and samples adhere on the lid. Some companies produce operational manual so that the liquid on the lid does not spatter on the worker.

Toppan Forms developed a sustainable temperature transportation cool box that lightens the burden of the carrier by putting a caster wheel and installing a first in the industry transportation tray with a swing mechanism inside the cool box that prevents leakage and deformation of the contents. Furthermore, the transportation tray employs cooling plate that is highly heat conductive enabling efficient conduct of refrigerant’s chill temperature during transportation.


  • 1. Cool box with a swing mechanism transportation tray is the first in the industry.
  • 2. When the test tube holder is set on the tray, the liquid in the test tube is constantly leveled preventing contents from leaking.
  • 3. The effect of a highly conductive cool plate allows efficient chill temperature of the refrigerant to be conveyed.
  • 4. The swing mechanism inside a sealed cool box stirs the air allowing the temperature inside the box to be uniform.
  • 5. Temperature and Ship-in/out record management system are optionally available.

Future Roadmap

By expanding the sales channel in the logistic providers centered around renewable medical sector that needs high quality management, Toppan Forms expects to achieve a revenue of one billion yen of Medical related Mechacool solution by 2014.
