Abstract

The invention relates to a device making it possible to transport, autonomously and at a regulated temperature, tubes for specimens or medicaments already cooled to 4 DEG C, maintained electrically by the Peltier effect. It consists of a case 1 made in two parts, hinged together, and of a face forming a cover 2 enclosing an isothermal bell made in two parts 7 and 8. Sealing is performed by a diaphragm 10 defining cavities 9 for receiving the products to be transported. Refrigeration is obtained by a Peltier-effect module 5, the cold inner face of which is in contact with a heat exchanger 6. The hot face is in contact with a static radiator 4. The said module is supplied by batteries 12 regulated by a thermostat with probe 11. The device according to the invention is particularly intended for transporting medical products. <IMAGE>

Le présente invention concerne un conteneur réfrigéré autonome. The present invention relates to a self-contained refrigerated container.

Dans le domaine de la recherche médicale : maladies tropicales dans le tiers monde, grands fléaux modernes comme le cancer ou le rida, les échanges de connaissances et de découvertes prennent une dimension internationnele. In the field of medical research: tropical diseases in the third world, great modern scourges like cancer or wrinkled, exchange of knowledge and discovery take a internationnele dimension. Les chercheurs du monda entier, les médecins sans frontière et le corps médical de tous les pays du monde su mobilisent pour sauver des vies humaines. Researchers around monda, doctors without borders and the medical profession of all countries of the world managed to mobilize to save lives.

Le transport du sang, de bactéries, de sérums, dc médicaments ou d'organes (multiplicetion des greffes) devient primordial dans cette lutte pour la vie. The transportation of blood, bacteria, serums, dc drugs or organs (multiplicetion transplants) becomes essential in this fight for life. La réussite des interventions et de la rechercha dépend de la rapidité et de le qualité du transport. The success of interventions and sought depends on the speed and the quality of transport. I1 s'agit donc de concerver des produite dans de bonnes conditions. I1 is therefore of the concerver produced under good conditions.

Il apparait apras divers entretiens, que la majorité dee produits transportés doit impérativement être réfrigérés. It appears after several interviews, the majority dee transported products must always be refrigerated.

Il apparait aussi que parmi le peu de conteneurs existants, aucun n'supporte une solution efficace au problème soulevé. It also appears that among the few existing containers, n'supporte no effective solution to the problem raised.

Les méthodes employées jusqu'à présent du type glace pilée, ou la traditionnelle glacière ne permettent aucun contrôle de la température et sont d'une courte autonomie, entraînant le perte du produit.
