No more dry ice and besides it’s not “green”. This is the replacement for dry ice for sending products and solutions for Life Sciences, so we can expect to be seeing more of these when transporting solutions. BD
LAKE FOREST, Calif. and MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 18, 2009 — CryoPort Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:CYRX) and FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX), today announced the companies have signed an agreement to provide an innovative and breakthrough frozen shipment solution for the life science industry.
The CryoPort Express Shipper allows for products to remain frozen at temperatures below -150C for up to 10 days, unlike dry ice shipping which often requires re-icing during transit.
By using CryoPort Express, customers also will eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and landfill disposal issues associated with traditional dry ice methods.
