Climate Controlled Cabinets
Medication and Saline Storage
Mermaid Manufacturing began making Medi-Kool's a little over 10 years ago. We are the originator's of the climate controlled medication storage solution.
Click around to the left to see pictures and more detail on our Medi-Kool Products.
All of our units come standard with a Medi-Kool Digital Control Board. The micro-chip in the control board stores 30 days worth of time, date and temperature. This information can be downloaded (via USB) to a computer once a month and kept for storage accountability. Additionally, the security feature on our board is only accessible by a four digit code; you cannot change the temperature of the cabinet unless you know that code. For more info, please click on 'MK Control Board' and 'USB Download Instructions'
Medi-Kool's are compressor based. We carry a FIVE year warranty on all of our compressors.
Our units are made from high quality stainless steel - in fact, that's what the 'SS' stands for in our model numbers. Not only is stainless steel durable, but it is also extremely STERILE, which we know is important in the world of First Responders.
Regardless of the Medi-Kool product you choose, your medication will be continuously monitored and temperature controlled at any given moment. Powered by a 12V, low amp draw unit, our heating and cooling system provides the climate control you need. Each unit uses a refrigeration and heating system designed to change the core temperature substantially off ambient.
The standard Medi-Kool SS comes equipped with a Medeco lock - these locks cannot be picked and keys cannot be duplicated. The White House and countless other Federal Buildings around the country use these locks. Two keys are included with the order of any unit and additional keys can be ordered for an extra charge.
We do offer other locking options that include audit trail, WiFi Network technology, electronic locks, key pad access or just a basic knob if you prefer not having a lock. Please click on 'Lock Options' for more information.
The smaller units come in MICRO DEPTH or SALINE DEPTH. We designed these options at the request of our customers. Saline Depth is 3.5" deeper than our Micro Depth.
We can customize any unit to fit your requirements. Please let us know what specific dimensions you need if you do not see them here.

THE MK DUAL TEMP HORIZONTAL
Our units maintain temperatures as low as 17 degrees F or as high as 110 degrees F.
The MK Dual Temp Unit is designed to maintain two separate temperatures within one unit. Each section is controlled by its own compressor, climate control board and thermostat. Perfect for Saline storage on one side and drug storage on the other. Over the last few years we have seriously looked at the issues of drug storage in emergency vehicles and the temperature control on drug efficiency. The best innovations are those that offer a simple solution to a given problem.
All of our units (with the exception of the MK PELICAN) will reduce the internal cabinet temperature nearly 50 degrees of ambient! Certain factors may alter these numbers IE: outside temperature, ventilation, and air con usage. The MK PELICAN will reduce temperature 25-35 degrees of ambient.
For the States that have currently implemented the Induced Hypothermia Protocol (also known as Theraputic Hypothermia), our units will meet or exceed all the current regulatory requirements, thus helping to provide the legal protection you need. Medi-Kool® units are a simple and efficient solution to any climate control need.
Our units are also being used as a solution for Police Departments in need of storing rape kits in a climate controlled setting. We also have a lot of our Medi-Kool's in Fire Boats!
The MK 747 can hold one of the 747 medical boxes or two smaller boxes. Options include compressor off the back (standard), left or right. The hinge can be located on the left or right. A single adjustable vented shelf is included! An additional shelf is available as an option. Optional pull out drawer is available.
The MK 9606 is a relatively narrower and much deeper cabinet than our norm. The unit was designed to hold the Plano 9606 box. The compressor can be located to the rear, right, or the left of the unit. The hinge can be located to the right or the left. Shelves are not normally used in this configuration.
The MK Pelican is one of our largest units. Options include compressor on the rear (standard), left or right. The hinge can be located on the left or right. A single adjustable vented shelf is included! An additional shelf is optional. Optional pull out drawer is available. This picture shows the MK Pelican installed (back right hand side)

Shown here is our standard climate control board. Memory chip allows user to download 30 days of time, date and temperature. This helps ensure that your medication is being kept at its proper temperature. Most customers store data on a CD or admin computer incase any legal issues arise in the future.
Additionally, the temperature on our control board can only be set by the user with a four digit security code. This makes certain that no other employee can change the set temperature.
We carry a one year standard warranty on our MK Control Boards. After the first year, if you should have any issue with it, we sell it at a discounted/pro-rated price. Please see our Catalog for complete warranty information.

The MK 15 SS, MK 18 SS, MK Saline or MK- Micro with special mounting rack is perfect for fire trucks and vehicles that need a unit but don't have a cabinet to house them in. This special rack will hold and allow the unit to secure from either the top or bottom of any surface! We have taken off the flange that normally surrounds the unit, made it a covered (and protected) side compressor mount, added a place to hold our medical control board, or the MK- Saline controls and placed extra fans in for additional cooling.
Shown in this photo is an MK 15 SS with a small narcotics lock box.
The stainless steel drawer assembly is an option available on most of our units. The partitions in the drawer are removeable and can be configurated to your requirements. When used in a large unit, we will place a shelf just above it.
Dimensions are based on unit ordered

We have the ability to combine our units. This is a special order large cabinet with an MK Micro Vertical unit along side a mounting location for the controls. A small narcotics lock box is installed on the upper left side. Perfect for storing medication bags and narcotics on one side and saline on the other -- both at their own set temperature. We have very few limitations. We can also fabricate many different single unit faceplates. Let us know what your requirements are!
Due to many customer requests, we have introduced a solution to carrying Narcotics. These are designed to be an extra layer of protection for your narcotics and can be retrofitted to any new order. The cage can be vented as shown above or can be a solid finish. They are not designed to be a free standing unit. They are secured using a Medeco cam lock. Medeco locks and keys incorporate Medeco's patented, double locking principal which renders the lock pick proof. Each box has it's own lock cam with 2 non-duplicating keys and a coded key tab.
