Benefits of Dry Ice
Dry ice is beneficial for both commercial and consumer applications for generally the same reasons. It is frozen carbon dioxide, sitting at about -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit. It sublimates instead of melting, leaving no mess and not affecting the environment in an adverse way. It is also odorless. Dry ice is perfect for freezing specimens (blood, tissue, etc.) in a clean and efficient manner.
One must always be careful, however, when handling it; it can cause frostbite, asphyxiation, and explosions. For this reason, one must use it in a well-ventilated area and pick it up with tongs or heavy-duty gloves.
Uses for Dry Ice
In pharmaceutical and biotech applications, dry ice is perfect for shipping and storing perishable specimens. Research labs and universities, biotech, bioscience, federal research, medical, and diagnostic all utilize dry ice for these purposes.
Shipping with Dry Ice
Shipping with dry ice takes an educated and expert hand. One must have the proper materials and methods for insulating the specimen and labeling the package correctly. Usually, one can use a specially-insulated box with styrofoam within it and dry ice pellets or slabs placed around the product, which goes in the center. For the best results, seek out customized, professional packaging so you experience no mishaps.
