Celsius® FFT Box Shipper
The Celsius® FFT Box Shipper is a robust, qualified solution allowing safe shipment of frozen Celsius® FFT to remote locations. Celsius® FFT Box shipper is a single-use shipper refrigerated by dry-ice pellets which significantly simplifies biopharmaceuticals supply chain through one-way logistics and the transport of frozen Celsius® FFT to its destination site for thawing.

Celsius® FFT Shipper is offered for each size of Celsius® FFT. There are dedicated Shippers for each Celsius® FFT size: a one-unit and a four-unit shippers are available for container sizes smaller than 12L (only a one-unit version for the 12L size container).
The Celsius® FFT Box 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 Box Shipper provides you with strong confidence that they will match your requirements.
Celsius® FFT (Flexible Freeze & Thaw) and Celsius® FFTp (Flexible Freeze & Thaw for Plate Freezer) is a unique bag-in-shell system that replaces traditional freezing and thawing methods. The single-use containers are sterile, pre-assembled and ready-to-use for freezing and thawing biopharmaceutical solutions in commercially available equipment with the intent to leverage your existing freeze & thaw infrastructure.
