The Tempcell ECO is Softbox’s next generation recyclable parcel shipper for the life science industry. It is 100% kerbside recyclable, made from recycled corrugated paper materials. It utilises Thermaflute patent pending design and is qualified against ISTA 7D Summer and Winter profiles, able to control different temperature ranges including 00C to 300C products.
The Tempcell MAX is a single-use high performance PCM parcel shipper that is qualified to ISTA 7D test profiles and maintains up to 96 hours of thermal protection. It incorporates a SilverSkin radiant barrier that enhances its thermal performance and utilises next generation recyclable Pharmacool MAX PCM coolants.
Adding to Softbox’s award-winning Silverpod pallet shipper range is the Silverpod MAX, a high performance PCM pallet shipper that meets today’s global cold chain challenges. It incorporates PCM coolants that enable safe storage before and during shipping and has a SilverSkinTM reflective radiant barrier that enhances its thermal performance while utilising next generation recyclable Pharmacool MAX PCM coolants.
Wayne Langlois, President of Softbox, said: “We’re very excited to launch the Tempcell MAX and Silverpod MAX in Europe and unveil the Tempcell ECO for the first time. Bringing to market these new temperature control packaging systems signals a further advancement for Softbox.

The Clinipod is a carry-home shipper built to facilitate the last mile delivery of clinical trials to the end patient. Utilising its reusable PCM coolants, it provides up to six hours of thermal protection in extreme temperature conditions. The Clinipod is robust and reusable, while also being lightweight and easy to carry.
