CSWB-2U, Cold Stored Whole Blood 2 Unit Container
The Golden Minute Container is an ultra-lite solution that can transport two units of whole blood, dismounted maintaining cold chain for 24 hours, requiring no external power. We have integrated the Golden Minute TIC into a foam lined Pelican 1400 case for high shock and vibration environments.
Operationally tested and fielded to USSOCM units and Norwegian SOF. This is a product that Bloodstone members designed starting in 2010. With the help from Pelican BioThermal, COL Miles, COL Strandenes, Dr B. Blankenship, and a year of running the first containers in my pack in Tampa, FL we were able to validate the performance of this new product. Getting two units of cold stored whole blood in a form factor so that it could be carried on target was my goal.
