The SmartPak II measures a variety of environmental variables and works in conjunction with the Company’s Cryoportal logistics management platform to provide comprehensive and seamless monitoring of commodity conditions and Cryoport Express shipper performance.

The cloud based Cryoportal retains all of the critical data analytics generated by the SmartPak II, including “chain-of-condition” and “chain-of-custody”. Its integration with the Cryoportal provides, for the first time, real-time intervention capabilities.  Automated email alerts are sent to stakeholders for any incident of excursion or deviation.

The SmartPak II is an advanced integrated monitoring and communications systems that tracks the key aspects of each shipment that could affect the quality and/or timing of delivery of the commodity to its intended destination.
This includes real-time tracking using the Global Positioning System, cellular technology and Wi-Fi triangulation, which assures communication even in signal impaired environments. Some variables measured by the SmartPak II include internal and external temperatures, pressure, humidity, shock and orientation of the shipper.

Additionally, the SmartPak IIT system provides Cryoport with the ability to correlate transit related events to the impact on sample integrity, providing valuable insight on crucial logistics planning and equipment performance.

“As an example of its value, during its Beta phase, the SmartPak II Condition Monitoring System benefited a client by having a shipment saved during transit.  In this instance, the SmartPak II notified our client care team of an orientation issue during a critical shipment from the United States to the Netherlands.  Due to the alert sent by the SmartPak II, Cryoport logistics management was able to intervene and ensure that the materials arrived safely for the scheduled patient procedure.

The Smart Pak II will be available to Cryoport’s customers from September.
