Celsius® FFT Shipper is offered for each of the four sizes of Celsius® FFT: 2 L, 4 L, 6 L and 12 L. There are dedicated Shippers for each Celsius® FFT size: a one-unit and a four-unit shippers are available for the 2 L, 4 L and 6 L Celsius® FFT while the 12L Celsius® FFT has a one-unit version.
The Celsius® FFT Shipper has been qualified according to the most stringent regulations for shipping containers: ASTM-D4169 at Assurance Level 1 for mechanical integrity and ISTA 7D extreme summer profile for thermal performance. Altogether, these qualifications run by independant laboratories ensure proper safety and integrity of your high-value biopharmaceutical product during frozen shipment.
Maximum and minimum configurations (number of bags in shipper number of shippers in pallet) as well as maximum and minimum fill volumes were tested for each of the shipper sizes against both mechanical and thermal testing. Against the ISTA 7D extreme summer profile, all configurations tested passed the criteria for the shipper to provide adequate insulation and refrigeration to maintain the Celsius® FFT below –40°C for at least 96 hours. These results give an indication about the performances of the shipper you can expect in real-live shipments. This temperature profile is extreme and will bracket your actual shipping lane thermal conditions. While we know actual shipping lane thermal tests have to be made, the pre-qualification of the Celsius® FFT Shipper provides you with strong confidence that they will match your requirements.
