NineSigma, representing a global pharmaceutical company invites proposals for the best-in-class cost effective thermal protection to transport pharmaceuticals products at the right temperatures and control it
Pharmaceutical products often require stable temperatures during shipping and transport. This is accomplished utilizing thermos pallets and thermos covers, which provide a large space surrounding the products and reduce spoilage due to temperature variation. However, these coverings have limitations in their usage (including loss of pallet load e.g. for thermos pallet) and the materials they are manufactured from are non-recyclable.
Ninesigmas client is eager to look for new coverings or insulating materials that can be quickly assembled and provide the technical requirements as detailed below. The ideal solution would be applicable across all ranges
1. Version 1: 2-8°C
Profile 3 : Cold +2 to +8°C
Over 25 °C
over 8 °C
2 °C to 8 °C
below 2 °C
below 1 °C
2. Version 2: 15-25°C
Profile 1 : Room I +15 to +25°C
Over 40 °C
over 25 °C
15 °C to 25 °C
below 15 °C
3. Version 3: 2-25°C
Profile 2 : Room II +2 to +25°C
2 °C to 25 °C
Proposed solutions, should be capable to protect products against temperature excursions based on above profiles.
An example of an “open” insulated panel box is shown below related to 2-8°C product supply
The orientation of the packages in a shipper box is shown in the following table.
* shipper box dimension
** current maximum shipper box into a thermo pallet, with single orientation (flat)
*** current maximum shipper box into a thermo pallet, with multiple orientation (up and down)
Additionally, the proposed solution must cover the entire pallet and/ or provide stable temperature variation across all of the assembled product boxes. i.e. nonpowered air movement
The client is open to all insulating technologies and particular those with developed commercial products are encourage to submit their proposals.
The successful technology / proposal may involve some of the following
Possible approaches might include, but are not limited to:
The following approaches are not of interest:
Anticipated Project Phases or Project Plan
Review of technology and other project experience / applications.
Identification of costs and validation of technology required to develop proposed technology for specific application.
Submitting a Response
Proposals should contain the following
