Battlefield technology

Minneapolis,Minnesota, USA: Pelican BioThermal will display a reusable thermal container for transporting whole blood products at Somasa 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Golden Hour was invented by Pelican BioThermal in 2003 at the request of the US Army to address the need to securely, reliably and safely transport blood to battlefields away from fixed medical facilities.

“The launch of Golden Hour One answers the call for an even more portable container to transport blood supplies from anywhere in the world to any battlefield in the world,” says Kevin Lawler, vice president worldwide sales, Pelican BioThermal.
 
Golden Hour One holds a single unit of whole blood and maintains temperature for 18 hours under extreme conditions without external energy. And under less challenging conditions, it can keep blood cool for up to 36-plus hours. These temperature controlled containers are easy to use and assemble and consist of safe, reusable non-toxic materials.
 
Golden Hour One joins Pelican BioThermal’s proven family of Golden Hour products. The original Golden Hour Mobile transports up to four units of red blood cells (RBCs) and maintains temperature control in excess of 72 hours under extreme conditions.

Golden Hour Medic stores up to two units of whole blood, keeps blood cool for 24 hours under extreme conditions and performs up to 48-plus hours under optimal conditions. To learn more about Golden Hour One and the family of award-winning Golden Hour products, visit www.pelicanbiothermal.com.
