Are you travelling for a long period of time with temperature sensitive medication? The iCool MediCube keeps medication between 2 to 8°C for 24 to 30 hours*. Flying can be stressful, especially when travelling with temperature sensitive medication as the wrong environment can be seriously problematic. For example, if the medication becomes to cold, it can freeze en route before thawing and this can make the medication dangerous to use. The MediCube helps ensure this situation is avoided.
The MediCube includes two refreezable gel packs which keep the case cold. These are also sold separately for when you need a spare. With two convenient carry handles, the MediCube is easily portable. It's ideal for carrying pens, syringes and vials with its spacious internal storage compartment of 17 x 14 x 7cm.
You no longer need to be restricted by your medication as the MediCube gives you the freedom to travel wherever you want.
- External dimensions are 22cm (width) x 22cm (length) x 18.5cm (height) and weighs 2.25 kgs.
- Gel pack dimensions are 14.5cm (width) x 18.5cm (length) x 3.5cm (height) and weighs 856 grams each.
* Depending on external factors such as the ambient temperature; ambient humidity; how many times the case is opened etc. As such the responsibility for ensuring the medication is kept cold enough is solely that of the user and Syringa UK Ltd cannot be held responsible or liable.
Always freeze your gel packs for at least 14 hours in a domestic freezer before using them in your medicine bag. Always keep your cooled medical bag closed unless you need to access your medication. Never place your medication in direct contact with the frozen gel pack.
Take care not to drop or bump the cold packs especially whilst frozen. Plastic becomes brittle when frozen and so any impact could result in a fine crack that won't necessarily be noticed straight away. Then once the cold pack starts to thaw, the gel will leak into the pocket of the bag. Try to freeze the cold packs on a flat shelf or in a container in the freezer to protect them.
It's strongly advised to travel with a copy of your prescription and a letter from your GP with details of your medication (including its generic name, not just the brand name and the name of the health condition that you need the medication for). As well as helping you avoid any problems at customs, this will be useful if you need medical help while you're away. It may be worth getting the information translated into the language of the country or countries that you're visiting. Always seek advice from the airline you are travelling with or the departure/transit airport authorities regarding travelling with cooled medical bags or cooling devices.
