In an ever-evolving pharmaceutical industry, it is vital to have a trusted packaging partner to ship your highly sensitive products. Swiftpak have over 40 years' experience in the pharmaceutical, biopharma and medical industry.  

Insulated Medical, Biopharma & Biotech Solutions

Robust temperature controlled packaging is a vital component of shipping highly sensitive products such as vaccines or drugs. Frozen or chilled packaging ensures items are kept within a specific temperature range to help preserve the quality and safety of a product.

Temperature controlled packaging is frequently used to complement, and in some cases, substitute the need for temperature controlled logistics.

Swiftpak supplies a range of temperature controlled packaging solutions for the biopharma & biotech industry in any temperature range

  • Deep-frozen
  • Frozen
  • Chilled
  • Room temperature

Temperature controlled packaging products for pharmaceuticals, biopharma & biotech

Temperature Indicators

Temperature Indicators

Monitor the temperature of pharmaceutical, biopharma and medical goods during transit with temperature indicators.

Monitor temperature controlled packaging

Tested in a lab environment, temperature indicators are cost-effective and simple to use. Our temperature indicators are designed to monitor temperature and alert you if your biopharma or medical supplies have been exposed to unacceptable temperatures by turning bright red in colour.

Some benefits include:

  • They can be shipped and stored under most conditions
  • Delivers clear results
  • Has the highest accuracy on the market for indicator technology

Our range of temperature indicators can be used to monitor medical test kits deep frozen below -18C as well as temperatures between -3 Celsius and +10 Celsius. Both deliver clear results.

Thermal Insulation

Polystyrene EPS boxes

Moulded Foam EPS boxes that provide excellent thermal performance for temperature sensitive items in the pharmaceutical, medical and biopharma industry.

Polystyrene temperature controlled packaging

Polystyrene is an effective thermal insulator because it contains small, trapped air bubbles, meaning heat energy cannot pass through. This makes polystyrene EPS boxes a reliable form of temperature-controlled packaging for the pharmaceutical and biopharma industry that relies on their chemicals remaining stable without any temperature changes during transit.

Made from the hygienic material expanded polystyrene (EPS), these boxes are ideally suited for the pharmaceutical and medical sector. Largely used to safely transport a range of products from temperature sensitive vaccines to transplant organs, the EPS boxes are lightweight and robust. Pharmaceutical businesses can rely on moulded foam to provide the performance needed to meet their temperature and control requirements.

Vegan Temperature Controlled Packaging

The new, climate-neutral packaging solution with a positive CO2 balance. Sustainable packaging that's recyclable and highly insulating.

Recyclable Thermal Liner

This new thermal liner offers the best price-performance ratio compared to current insulating systems for the shipping of temperature-sensitive items. Our new solution has been verified by more than 1,000 climate tests in internal and external laboratories.
This new temperature controlled packaging solutions is a new and innovative insulated packaging for shipping cold or frozen items. Our insulated pouches and liners are made from 100% recyclable materials and can be disposed of in paper waste.


Dry Ice

Dry ice is one of the preferred cooling agents used in many pharmaceutical and biopharma companies due to its many benefits.

Reliable temperature controlled packaging

Dry ice is ideal for transportation of sensitive pharmaceutical and biopharma products as it inhibits the growth or decline of certain biological products and it sublimates without leaving any residue or waste. Dry Ice is a solid carbon dioxide (CO2) that can go from a solid to a gas without passing through a liquid phase. Dry ice is commonly used for shipping sensitive pharmaceutical products such as vaccines due to its reliability in temperature stability.


Gel packs

Ensure your pharmaceutical & biopharma products are transported in a temperature-controlled manner, keeping chemicals stable and within the required temperature.

Reusable temperature controlled packaging

This products quality meets the highest industry standards being made from high-quality components, as well as being durable and reusable.

  • No Sweat Gel Packs keep your moisture and temperature sensitive products dry and chilled with its non-woven out layer reducing condensation. Available in a variety of sizes and weights.
  •  Eco Friendly Gel Packs are made from Kraft paper so when disposed of through the normal waste stream they produce less pollution than the normal variety. The outside of the kraft paper absorbs some of the condense which appears while warming up, keeping your product dryer than normal gel packs. Also available in a variety of sizes and weights.
  • Segmented Gel packs are designed to better cover your products and produced to ensure conditioned transportation of your products. Available in different sizes, weights, and types of foil.
