Climate Controlled Cabinets
Medication, Saline and Other Storage Needs
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.

All of our units come standard with a Medi-Kool Digital Control Board. Detailed information is available under 'Control Board Instructions' and 'MK Control Board' (to your left)
Medi-Kool's are compressor based. We carry a FIVE year warranty on all of our compressors alone. We do have a detailed warranty that we would like you to be familiar with (in the catalog
To date (2014), we still have units operating in the field that go back to 2003 (our original plastic units that we've discontinued). Think of Medi-Kool the same way as your refrigerator (except that it heats) and is designed, built and shipped to be upright at all times.
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, narcotics, saline or other fluids will be continuously monitored and temperature controlled at any given moment. Powered by a 12V, low amp (5.7) 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, electronic locks 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 deeper than our Micro Depth for additional depth storage. It all depends on how much room you have if you're doing a remount, or how much room to acclimate if building from spec. Our dimensions are listed in our catalog and on our products (to your left).
Please let us know what specific dimensions you need if you do not see them here.

THE MK DUAL TEMP HORIZONTAL
Our units are designed to maintain temperatures between 35 degrees F, up to 110 degrees F. They will stretch a little further, but we don't recommend freezing or overheating your drugs.
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.
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 off 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.
Medi-Kool units are a simple and efficient solution to any climate control need.
The first of the Medi-Kool line, the MK15 SS is ideal for the ALS cabinet or in a space where smaller climate controlled medication needs arise.

You can also order this as a refrigeration only unit.

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 two 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.
