Cold chain packaging
If you have a valuable product which needs to be kept within a tight temperature tolerance you probably use insulated boxes that perhaps containing dry ice or cold packs. Often these packages need to be tested to guarantee that they maintain temperature in all circumstances through a cold chain.
