Under special conditions, there can be a need to transport prefilled syringes to caregivers. The Emergency Syringe Capsule (ESC) provides protection and a temperature-controlled environment for ten syringes. A color-changing cold pack offers visual cues to assess the internal temperature of the capsule quickly. The ESC also includes various security features to alert users of potential tampering. The syringe's locations are identified numerically and by colors making communication between caregivers easier.
