Helpful Cool Cube™ use tip #1:

Cool Cubes™ can be used with less PCM panels to decrease weight and increase storage space.

In addition to the safe and effective cooling system, Cool Cubes™ have remarkable insulation. Therefore, many customers choose not to utilize all six cooling panels (just like reducing the number of ice/gel packs for shorter trips). For instance, the VT-08 will hold a 2-8°C range for a lab validated 76+ hours with all six 4°C panels surrounding the payload. That same unit packed out with only one panel on the bottom will last 22 hours (still longer than the typical use time). What’s the benefit? The capacity is increased by 65% and the weight is decreased by 54%. It’s smart, it’s easy, it’s safe…it’s a Cool Cube™!

Helpful Cool Cube™ use tip #2:

Cleaning and maintaining the Cool Cube™

All components may be cleaned using warm water and soap. Sanitization can be performed using an isopropyl alcohol and water mixture (typically a 70/30 alcohol to water mix) or other salt-based disinfectants. DO NOT autoclave, use solvents such as acetone, expose to extreme heat (75°C/167°F or above), or use abrasive cleaners.

Helpful Cool Cube™ use tip #3:

Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIP) “Recommended VIP Replacement” date.

There is a printed “Recommended VIP Replacement” date on each panel of the Cool Cube™ VIP. That date is not a firm expiration date, and does not indicate that your VIPs need to be replaced.
After 5 years, Cool Cube™ vacuum insulated panels lose approximately 5% effectiveness (i.e. a Cool Cube™ 28 @ Refrigerated Temps that protects vaccine today for 103+ hours…in 2024 it will hold will hold the temperature for 97+ hours). But just in case you are wondering if the insulation in your Cool Cube™ is still good, inspect each panel for a loss of rigidity. A loose skin indicates vacuum loss (puncture/leak), which will affect performance. They are durable, but not indestructible, so replacement panels are available. Still unsure? Send us a picture and we can probably tell you if it still has a vacuum seal.
