The Porta Thermal Medium 10 Litre Vaccine Bag:
Typically, the 10 litre Portal Thermal Vaccine Bags are used to keep items in cold chain over short distances, or between two locations in a district, for example between wards and clinics, or transport to single-location community projects. They will keep the contents (vaccines or medicines) in cold chain for up to 3hrs40 minutes without additional coolant, without the need for constant refrigeration. If you require longer periods in cold chain, please consider a 20 litre
or 30 litre
capacity bag, with or without a handy trolley.
In a handy, compact size, the 10 litre cold chain transport bag has a capacity for up to 80HPV packs, or slightly fewer if coolant packs are used to extend the time in cold chain. They are most commonly used for transfer of temperature-sensitive vaccines or medicines between two locations, or for community outreach programmes lasting a few hours.
These bags are in use across the globe with community medical teams and are market-leading in design and format. The bags are durable and field-tested to withstand everyday use, have a wipe-clean, infection control design and material, and are effective at keeping medication and vaccines in cold chain for extended periods of time. The standard 10 litre vaccine bag is designed to be carried by an individual, with a double grip handle or removable shoulder strap option.
The new updated 2020 version builds on the heritage of our original thermal bag but brings improvements including durability, infection control properties, insulation and handling.

Extensive Independent testing has been conducted and full reports are available upon request. It should be noted that time contents remain below 8°C will vary depending on the load, ambient temperature, quantity and positioning of the coolant and temperature of contents when loaded. It is always advised to use a data logger to continually measure the temperature of contents.
Tests in 2020 shows these bags holding cold chain for up to 3 hours 40 minutes without coolant. We always advise using coolant to extend cold chain timings, 4 small blocks and 8 gels.
