ATMOS Offers Speed, Accuracy and Flexibility for True Predictive Modeling Analysis of Cold Chain Systems

YORK, England, October 12, 2010 - Intelsius, a global manufacturer and distributor of environmentally safe,
temperature-controlled and regulatory-compliant packaging solutions, has
launched version 1.4 of its proprietary Analytical Thermal Modeling Software
– ATMOS(TM). The system calculates the thermal performance of a
temperature-controlled packaging system prior to a formal
performance-qualification process, thereby reducing timelines and cost when
developing packaging systems.

ATMOS was developed in collaboration with a leading UK research
university and uses semi-empirical numerical modeling methods and
experimental baseline data to calculate the thermal performance of a
packaging system. In addition to incorporating standard temperature profiles
from the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA), this highly efficient
software has the capability to import up to 4,000 individual data points from
a temperature data logger.

ATMOS emulates the packaging's response to external temperatures and
generates reports that pinpoint if and when the packaging system will fail or
be at risk of failure. The software allows for true modeling analysis of any
global route with an accuracy rate within 90+ percent of failure time.

"This new version of ATMOS will help save our clients time and money as
the software allows for quicker analysis than standard thermal modeling
programs on the market today. Furthermore, ATMOS is equivalent to running 30
test chambers thereby eliminating the need for extensive chamber testing,
which lessens the impact our operation has on the environment," said David
, Founder and CEO of Intelsius.

Compared to existing thermal modeling software that use a finite element
analysis, ATMOS is simpler to operate, which reduces the risk for error and
allows for expedient analysis. The software uses components from a preset
list of items, including systems and cool packs. This allows ATMOS to
assemble a thermal model of a specific shipping system with only a limited
amount of input. As a result, ATMOS can reduce development times by up to 70
percent with the ability to complete an analysis and generate a full
predictive model in less than three hours. Environmental test chambers, by
comparison, often require weeks to reach the same result.

Dr. Alex Roskoss, Ph.D., MPhys., and Global Product Development Manager
at Intelsius, was instrumental in developing ATMOS and believes the system is
the next step in advanced thermal modeling. "Through years of extensive
development, ATMOS is able to accurately predict the optimal system
configuration for cold chain systems in hours rather than days.

ATMOS' true modeling capabilities and ability to handle massive amounts
of information reduces the need for physical prototypes and extensive chamber
testing, thereby shortening development times in the highly competitive life
sciences industry."

The new version of ATMOS has also been designed to incorporate Intelsius'
latest shipping solution — Orcatherm(TM). Orcatherm is a passive
temperature-controlled shipping system that has been engineered to ensure
optimal thermal protection for high-value shipments during distribution
within challenging environments. Orcatherm is completely reusable and
uniquely designed with encapsulated Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIPs), which
produces up to seven times the insulating effects as the same thickness of
less eco-friendly materials.
