Minnesota Thermal Science
Transporting Blood and Vaccine Products
Minnesota Thermal Science (MTS) is a leading provider of high performance temperature controlled logistic solutions. The ISO 9001:2008 certified company currently employs over 30 skilled and experienced personnel. The company was formed in 2002 in response to an industry-wide search by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research for a more effective combat-environment thermal container. MTS responded with the Original Golden Hour® (OGH) thermal shipping container, 2003 recipient of the Greatest Invention Award from the US Army.
The OGH continues to keep critical blood, vaccines and other temperature sensitive medical supplies safe for extended periods of time in the extreme environments of the battlefield today. GSA-certified, all Minnesota Thermal Science containers employ Golden Hour® technology for safe, reliable transport that outperforms other thermal solutions on the market.
MTS supplies temperature controlled transport / logistics products and services to clients around the globe. These products offer a high level of protection for temperature-sensitive goods including pharmaceuticals, tissue and biologics. Minnesota Thermal Science is particularly experienced in understanding the needs of clients, and collaborating to offer a reliable, cost-effective solution with a meaningful ROI.

Transporting Blood Products
Transporting blood products to both the civilian and military blood-banking communities in extreme temperatures and extended transit times is no longer a logistical burden. Reliably transport red blood cells (RBCs) and other blood products with temperature controlled solutions from Minnesota Thermal Science (MTS).
From portable lightweight containers that can carry a few units of blood to large bulk shipments, MTS' solutions are proven, durable and effective. Winner of the U.S. Army's Greatest Invention Award, the Original Golden Hour® container continues to help save lives around the world.
Military Shipping Containers
Minnesota Thermal Science's (MTS) military shipping containers are used to improve the ability of the Department of Defense to provide safe blood and blood products to members of the Armed Forces in locations around the world. Originally designed for Special Forces medics, the Original Golden Hour (OGH) was officially adopted in 2003 as the Special operations "universal solution" for passive thermal storage and transport of blood products as well as other temperature-sensitive materials.
Other high value medical materials that can be shipped in MTS containers include but are not limited to, Factor 7, vaccines, injectable medications, pharmaceuticals, reagents, and lyophilized products. Endorsed by the Armed Service Blood Program Office and incorporated as a part of the TCCC curriculum taught at Fort Sam Houston our containers are durable and built to withstand the harshest conditions no matter the sensitivity of the payload.
Ensure safe vaccine transportation and transport of high value medical products using innovative shipping containers from Minnesota Thermal Science. The company's scientific Golden Hour® Technology is used to ensure safe and reliable global transportation of temperature sensitive materials; such as vaccines, pharmaceuticals, reagents, and lyophilized products.
Secure your payload for the duration of the shipment, from 2-96 liters and pallet size options for up to seven. MTS solutions provide a significant return on investment by virtually eliminating temperature excursions during transport, repeated usage and logistical flexibility.
Passive Thermal Control
Eliminate the complications of using wet and dry ice, gel packs and/or an energy source with reliable, cost-effective passive thermal control solutions from Minnesota Thermal Science. Transport temperature sensitive materials in a revolutionary system that provides the most precise passive thermal control available.
Such containers house award-winning Golden Hour technology and maintain specified temperatures longer than other passive solutions on the market. Containers provide the government and military with an unprecedented level of control for blood and medicine transport even in harsh battlefield conditions. Saving the lives of military personnel demands the most reliable system for ensuring accurate, consistent thermal control.
Temperature controlled storage for shipping medicines and other perishable medical materials, including blood and pharmaceutical products have been a difficult challenge in the past. Today however, Minnesota Thermal Science, an industry leader in the delivery of cold chain logistic solutions, offers innovative, patented technology that reliably protects payload throughout the duration of the shipment.
Contents are protected at defined temperatures for extended periods of time. Such technology allows for greater payload space, lighter container weights and no excursions. MTS solutions are simple, reusable and thoroughly tested to meet specific applications. They eliminate the guesswork and complications of using traditional packaging.
