MEDICOOL Insulated case



About MEDICOOL Insulated Case

  • Designed for insulin, popular with the dry eye crowd!
  • Includes two cooler packs
  • Suited for autologous serum drops or artificial tears
  • Choice of colors (sorry, only blue is pictured)
  • 8" by 4" by 2.5"

Description (by Rebecca)

This case is designed for insulin. I decided to stock it after seeing it recommended time and again by dry eye patients who use it to take autologous serum eyedrops to work with them, while traveling, etc. 

Medicool can of course be used also with other types of drops as well. Many people prefer their artificial tears chilled, for the soothing effect. It would hold either two 15mL bottles/vials of something or several smaller PF vials - how many would depend on the vial size & design.

This is a sturdy case. It's about 8" high, kind of oval in shape, with thick stiff insulation throughout. The ice packs fit snugly into the insulation. It comes in a variety of colors (select from the menu near the Add to Cart button).

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

Most doctors recommend insulin be kept refrigerated to ensure its maximum potency. When you use the Medicool Insulin Protector you can take a trip across country, knowing your insulin is cool and safe to use. The compact Protector is ideal for daily use and trips where a minimal amount of supplies are required. 

The Medicool Insulin Protector Case keeps insulin cool for up to 12 hours. Comes with two cooler packs. Use one while you refrigerate the other.

  • Carries up to two bottles of any brand insulin.
  • Provides pockets for syringes and alcohol swabs.
  • Dupont Cordura® Plus material.

Usage and Care

What is MEDICOOL used for?

Medicool is designed for cold storage of insulin, but can be used for cold storage of artificial tears and autologous serum eyedrops. It will keep drops cool for up to 12 hours. 

Directions for Use in Mild to Hot Temperatures

  1. Place your blue plastic coolers in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator for at lease seven hours. Your freezer should be set on a mid-range setting. 
  2. We do not recommend using a deep freezer as this box type or commercial style freezer is TOO COLD. 
  3. After at least seven (7) hours, remove a blue plastic cooler from the freezer. You can now insert one or two bottles of insulin that are at room temperature and place the loaded cooler inside the insulin case. If your ensuing is already cold or refrigerated, then set the frozen blue plastic cooler out in room temperature for one minute before inserting your insulin.
  4. After your day's activities are over you may want to return your insulin to the refrigerator, especially if the insulin protector was exposed to high temperatures during the day. However if it was a mild day, insulin can easily be kept in the Medicool insulin protector overnight, (provided that this is in line with instructions provided to you by your insulin manufacturer). The next day, simply exchange the cooler in our case for the alternate cooler you have been keeping in the freezer. 

Note to travelers: If freezing a blue cooler isn't possible, place in ice or cold water until chilled. Pat dry before inserting into carrying case. For maximum cool when traveling, you can place your Medicool insulin protector into a styrofoam or plastic cooler; this will lengthen the time the case will work. 

Directions for Use in Cold Temperatures 

  1. Keep one blue plastic cooler stored at room temperature
  2. Place one or two bottles of insulin into the blue plastic cooler. At room temperature, the cooler acts as an insulator agains outside cold. 
  3. Place loaded cooler inside the insulated carrying case. 
  4. After your day's activities are over, you may want to return your insulin to the refrigerator, and let one blue cooler sit out in room temperature overnight.
