Standardized Testing Against Specific Temperature Profiles

We use a combination of thermal modeling and environmental testing chambers to validate pack-outs for temperature-sensitive shipments. We can test against any number of standard or custom thermal profiles, recommend testing profiles for your specific needs, and even develop custom profiles based on the exact packaging specifications you may need. Additionally, we develop reports for every test we perform and we’ll make sure you have all of the data and paperwork needed to meet your regulatory requirements.

Thermal Modeling

Rapidly test pack-out configurations on the fly.

We can model an infinite number of pack-outs to ensure your shipments retain efficacy in transit. Once we have a pack-out that meets our criteria, we can double check it in the environmental chambers, too.
