Markets We Serve


Temperature-sensitive medicine, like insulin, must be kept cool to remain effective. Sonoco ThermoSafe offers protective packaging that has been specially engineered for storing and transporting fragile pharmaceuticals.

Clinical Diagnostics

Medical diagnostics such as blood tests may be compromised if they aren’t kept below a temperature threshold. Sonoco ThermoSafe offers packaging solutions designed for processing bulk loads of bio-substances and performing clinical trials.


Temperature assurance packaging ensures the integrity of research materials when you are working with volatile biological cultures. Our storage containers are ideal for maintaining dry ice quality in the lab or storing frozen specimen samples.
