Pelican BioThermal Celebrates 15 Years of Life-Saving Technology with the Original Golden Hour Container

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

Leader in temperature controlled packaging marks anniversary of product developed to provide blood to critically wounded soldiers
MINNEAPOLIS–Pelican BioThermal, the global name in temperature controlled packaging, is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its award-winning Original Golden Hour™ container. The company’s flagship product, which was recognized in 2003 as part of the U.S. Army’s Greatest Inventions program, has gone on to shape future product development, influencing the full range of Pelican BioThermal reusable and single-use products.

“Today, the technology behind this product allows us to provide reliable temperature control not only for blood on the battlefield, but also for life-saving civilian applications, including the transport of biologics and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals for clinical trials and commercial distribution.”

We developed the Original Golden Hour to address a critical need facing our military personnel — how to make blood available to treat the critically wounded within the crucial first hour after injury,” explained Kevin Lawler, Pelican BioThermal VP of sales. “Today, the technology behind this product allows us to provide reliable temperature control not only for blood on the battlefield, but also for life-saving civilian applications, including the transport of biologics and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals for clinical trials and commercial distribution.”

In 2003, Pelican BioThermal responded to a U.S. Army request for proposal seeking a way to store blood and platelets to aid emergency medics saving lives on the battlefield. The answer, the Original Golden Hour container, was subsequently included as part of the 2003 U.S. Army’s Greatest Inventions program by the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) Public Affairs office.

“If you can make sure that someone doesn’t bleed out by giving a resupply of blood right there, you’ve exponentially impacted the ability to save that soldier’s life,” said sixteenth chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, retired U.S. Marine general, Peter Pace, who also serves as chairman of the board for Pelican Products. “It truly makes a difference on the battlefield. And that’s as true today as it was 15 years ago.”

Patented Golden Hour™ Technology provides superior thermal protection for high value temperature-sensitive payloads between 2 and 1686 liters, from -50ºC to 25°C for up to seven days (168 hours). Today, Golden Hour Technology is integral to all of the company’s products, including reusable products like the Cr?do Cube™ shipper and the Cr?do™ ProMed series, as well as the Chronos™ range of single-use shippers.

In recognition of this milestone, Original Golden Hour will be on display during two events taking place this month: Special Operations and Medical Association Scientific Assembly (SOMSA), taking place May 13-16 in Charlotte, NC and Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC), taking place May 21-24 in Tampa, FL. Champions of the product will also be on hand during the events to discuss its evolution and new applications.

SOFIC – Pelican Introduces Pelican Air Line of Cases

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

Pelican introduce a new line of cases called Pelican Air. Although up to 40% lighter than other Pelican cases, they still protect your valuables during storage and transit. That’s because they are molded from the use of their new HPX resin which rebounds without breaking as well as the use of honeycomb structural elements.

The design has been tested by dropping on concrete with loads from a height of six feet on all sides and corners as well as sustaining a 28lbs steel dart dropped on all sides from three feet. Additionally, the case is capable of being submerged for 30 mins at a depth of one meter.

Pelican 2360 Tactical LED Flashlight

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Below is a review by an Army Lieutenant we received of the new 2360 LED Flashlight from Pelican.

Pelican 2360 LED Light

The Pelican 2360 is small and lightweight, weighing approximately four ounces and just over six inches in length. It replaces the need for lithium batteries with 2AA regular alkaline batteries yet it still works up to the performance of a lithium battery, giving it on average, up to two and a half hours of battery life. The brightness of the 2360 can emit from 95 to 100 lumens making it one of the brightest 2AA flashlights I have seen. The body is constructed of aerospace grade aluminum and boasts an impact resistant LED which makes it very durable. It possesses a non-slip design and easy to operate tail switch button so that you may operate it in even the most difficult weather conditions. The 2360 also comes with a two way removable pocket clip which can secure it in your pocket, or on the brim of your hat. In short the Pelican 2360 Tactical Flashlight is small, durable, and efficient.

That is an excellent summary of the light. For more info visit
