PELI Products, the global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance protective cases and advanced portable lighting systems announces the acquisition of NanoCool, an Albuquerque, New Mexico-based manufacturer of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, through its Peli Biothermal Division. This acquisition further increases the breadth of the PELI Products portfolio, already the most comprehensive in the industry. The addition of NanoCool customers, market segments and product technologies will enable PELI Biothermal to expand its access to patients, laboratories and other last-mile players in the distribution of life sciences materials and collection of patient laboratory samples.

NanoCool’s innovative evaporative cooling systems are the most convenient cold chain shipping containers available. With no need to refrigerate or pre-condition, NanoCool packaging can be stored at normal temperatures. A simple push of a button, engages the cooling technology and quickly conditions a payload space for shipping biological patient samples and other life science materials. These unique characteristics, and highly efficient volumetrics, make NanoCool ideal for markets including specialty couriers, diagnostic laboratories, clinical supply providers and gene and cell therapy organisations. The company also has a dry-ice friendly parcel shipper and a version of its cooling engine that patients can send in a shipping envelope from their homes.

Doug Smith, founder of NanoCool will remain a consultant to NanoCool, and the NanoCool facility in New Mexico will continue to manufacture its products. Plans are underway to increase production at the facility to meet expected new sales following the acquisition. The approximately 60-person staff of NanoCool will be retained and new positions may be added to enhance operations and support sales growth.
