The present invention provides an insulated container that is especially useful in cooling and transporting thermally sensitive materials such as pharmaceuticals, organs, tissues and vaccines. In general, the present invention comprises a container having a base unit and a lid. The container is insulated, preferably through the use of vacuum insulation paneling.A tray holding specimens is placed within the insulated container along with a coolant. To affect the rate at which the coolant draws heat from the specimen within the tray, another competing heat...
1. An apparatus for cooling and storing a specimen comprising:an insulated container comprising one or more vacuum insulation panels having inner surfaces defining a cavity for receiving and storing the specimen; a coolant located within the cavity and in thermal communication with the specimen stored within the cavity; expanded polystyrene located within the cavity and in thermal communication with the coolant for affecting the rate of cooling.
