Peli BioThermal, a supplier of temperature-controlled packaging, recently announced the acquisition of NanoCool, an Albuquerque-based manufacturer of temperature-controlled packaging solutions. The addition of NanoCool customers, market segments and product technologies will enable Peli BioThermal to expand its access to patients, laboratories and other last-mile players in the distribution of life sciences materials and collection of patient laboratory samples.
“The core competency of Peli BioThermal and NanoCool — innovative temperature-controlled packaging — is very much aligned, but there is little overlap between our market segments and product technologies,” said David Williams, President of Peli BioThermal. “Adding NanoCool’s capabilities to our diverse product line will help fuel our efforts to expand our offerings and bring further innovation to growing sectors of the life sciences industry spanning the globe. We will continue to lead innovation in temperature-controlled packaging with the addition of NanoCool’s customer-focused engineering approach — a methodology that both organisations fully embrace.”
NanoCool’s cold chain shipping containers feature evaporative cooling systems. With no need to refrigerate or pre-condition, NanoCool packaging can be stored at normal temperatures. A push of a button engages the cooling technology and conditions a payload space for shipping biological patient samples and other life science materials. These characteristics, and highly efficient volumetrics, make NanoCool ideal for markets including specialty couriers, diagnostic laboratories, clinical supply providers and gene and cell therapy organisations. The company also has a dry-ice friendly parcel shipper and a version of its cooling engine that patients can send in a shipping envelope from their homes.
“I’m thrilled to see NanoCool become part of the Peli BioThermal family. The Peli BioThermal brand is well known around the world for its temperature-controlled technology and we’re excited that our products will gain access to their resources and best-in-class industry expertise,” said Doug Smith, founder of NanoCool.
The approximately 60-person staff of NanoCool will be retained and new positions may be added to enhance operations and support sales growth.
