The MediGenix CoolMeds isothermic bag has been specially designed, using high quality materials, to safely transport temperature sensitive medicine between 2-8°C for 12-18hrs*. We know travelling can be stressful without having the added worry of carrying 2-8°C medicine. It is very important  the medicine doesn't get too warm otherwise it can be an ideal environment for bacteria to grow and cause the compounds to breakdown. Also if it gets too cold and freezes, it will then thaw when it warms up again. 

What makes this bag special is that it is fitted with integrated digital thermometer, which gives the user peace of mind by allowing them to monitor the bag’s internal temperature without opening the bag. There are 4 elasticated product loops and the netted pouch to ensure that products are kept at the optimal position in the carry bag (suitable for vials, syringes and pens). As a guide, the internal space accommodates 4 pens that are up to 18cm long and 1.8cm in diameter. The bag itself is made from high quality material for maximum insulation inside and canvas on the outside. 

It comes with two CoolMeds Cold Packs with double outer covers which offer a longer cooling effect and durability during frequent use. Along with two CoolMeds Buffer packs which absorb excessive cold and protect medicine from freezing or over-cooling. These can also be bought separately as they are good to have as spares. Internal thermometer batteries (2 x AG13 batteries) are also included. 

Our customers absolutely love this bag as it never fails to look after their medicine when travelling and puts their minds at rest.

Dimensions:

  • Case when packed with cold packs, buffer packs and medicine is approximately: 23cm (L) x 17.5cm (W) x 10cm (H)
  • Cold pack dimensions: 17cmx10cmx2cm and weighs 260 grams each
  • Buffer pad dimensions: 17cmx10cmx0.5cm and weighs 68 grams each

Before purchasing, read our information manual under the 'User Manual' tab. 

We highly recommend you do at least one trial run before your journey to make sure you are confident in using the bag. This is because every environment is different so this may affect how quickly the cold packs defrost and it will give you time to ask us any questions. 

*Depending on external factors such as the ambient temperature; ambient humidity; how many times the bag 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.

How do I know which bags are suitable for my medication?

Always check what the manufacturers guidance is on what temperature your medication should be kept at. Type your medication in our Search Bar in the top right hand corner to find bags that can be considered to store your medication.

I have followed the instructions very carefully but the bag won't warm up to 0°C - what should I do?

Firstly, please check the following:
Are the buffer pads unfrozen?
Have you left the cold packs out for at least 30 minutes?

If you have done this, there are a few things to do next. Leave the cold packs out for another 30 minutes so they can defrost more. To speed this process up, place the cold packs in lukewarm water for 5-10minutes. Then re-insert the cold packs into the bag. Wait 3-5 minutes for the temperature to stabilise. If the temperature is still too low, repeat this process until the temperature stabilises at 0°C or above. If the temperature doesn't stabilise - please contact us. The reason the bag may be too cold is because the cold packs have been frozen in a highly efficient freezer that may be below -18°C so it will take longer for them to defrost and warm up to 0°C. 
An important note to mention - if you do not feel comfortable with the temperature of the bag, do not place the medicine inside. You are welcome to contact us and talk to one of our trained employees who can advise you on what to do next. 

Can I put the medicine straight into the bag after I have inserted the cold packs?

We do not recommend doing this as the bag hasn't stabilised at a temperature yet and may be too cold. If the temperature is too cold, the medicine may freeze which can cause the chemical structure of the medicine to change and be compromised. The most important step before putting the medicine in the bag is to the ensure the bag has stabilised at 0°C or above with the cold packs and buffer pads included, whilst being closed. 

How can I get the cold packs to defrost quicker?

Place them in lukewarm water for 10-15 minutes before inserting into the bag.

The item arrived before I went away and after freezing it kept my insulin between 2 and 8 degrees for about 20 hours so really worked well.

Amazing bag for the price
Thursday, 29 July 2021  | 

Such a great price for this type of bag. Lasted longer than 18hours as I was in a cool airplane which was great. It is quite a snug fit but stays cool which is the main thing. The only thing I would mention is it takes a little while for the bag to stay at 0C as I discovered in the test run. Overall - amazing bag for the price.

One of the best bag I've tried

Excellent! Kept my sons injections cool enough for more than 12hrs! Slightly bigger would have been better as the cold packs and buffers take up quite a lot of space.

Worry free transport
Sunday, 26 April 2020  | 

This is great for keeping the temperature consistent. Takes a couple of uses to get used to it, and the first time the temperature dropped to 0degrees briefly, but it just meant I needed to leave the ice packs out for longer next time. I find I have to leave them for an hour before assembling the bag.

This cool bag is amazing! It kept my daughter's medication at the right temperature for at least 24h! We didn't have any problem going through security checks in London, but in our way back the security officers were a bit suspicious of the wiring that co
