The Small Porta Thermal 3 Litre Vaccine Bag:
The most compact size in our Porta Thermal Cold Chain range, the 3l carry pouch is designed to be carried in your hand as a useful grab bag format. With capacity up to 20HPV packs (without additional coolant), this compact design is most commonly used to transfer temperature sensitive medicines and vaccines between medical campuses and wards, or to single-site community outreach programmes. The Cold Chain insulating properties of the vaccine bags mean that vaccines and medicines will stay below 8°C for up to 1hr15 minutes without additional coolant. If you require longer periods in cold chain, please consider a 10 litre, 20 litre or 30 litre capacity bag
, with or without a handy trolley.
These bags are in use across the globe with medical teams and the emergency services 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. As well as being a handy grab bag size, the 3l version also comes with a double grip handle or removable shoulder strap option for ease of use.
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.
