VaccinePorter Carrier Systems

VaccinePorter® Carrier Systems –

keeping medicines effective for the last mile

Temperature controlled biomedicines such as Vaccines are actively or passively regulated at a thermal level different from the surrounding ambient environment. Vaccines are transported in refrigerated containers to surgeries and local vaccine storage facilities where they are then stored in special vaccine fridges, ready to be delivered to administration sites including schools, clinics and care homes.


Keeping cold chain medicines within the +2°C and +8°C temperature range is a difficult and risky process, having products too cold causes deterioration or too warm can render them inert. Medicines stored and transported correctly reduce any risk of compromising their quality, efficacy and safety, so using a proven validated cool box is essential.

Helapet VaccinePorter® Carriers allow for safe, controlled transit of temperature sensitive products between +2°C and +8°C for up to 8 hours, even with multiple openings for multi-site deliveries. Validation documentation assures the users that the controlled product is safe in transit, maintaining integrity right up to the point of patient administration.

VaccinePorter® Carriers are available in various capacity sizes granting flexibility for a multitude of healthcare applications, from inter-department transportation in hospitals to community immunisation programmes. Various biomedicines included in cold chain transportation include:

  • Vaccinations
  • Insulin
  • Anti-cancer drugs
  • Monoclonal antibodies


Simple and quick to prepare, each VaccinePorter® Carrier comes with a lightweight fully replaceable components to cost effectively maintain thermal performance. Each carrier incorporates a secure Velcro® fastening and tamper evident facility to prevent theft and a clear document holder allowing for easy storage of accompanying information.

Supplied in 5 different sizes VaccinePorter® Carriers can accommodate up to 8 litres of product. Pick out your preferred size by requesting your hard copy of our VaccinePorter brochure, simply by emailing info@helapet.co.uk.
