104 litres internal capacity for vaccines at 2oC to 8oC adaptable for multiple power sources and maximum holdover time
We refer to the cold chain as the necessity to maintain vaccines in a defined temperature range from the point of origin to the point of administration. This temperature range is defined as 2° to 8° C or 35° to 46° F. This range is defined on the high end by the amount of heat energy necessary to break the weak electrical bond maintaining the configuration of the amino-acid chain which is the active ingredient in a vaccine. It is defined on the low end by what could loosely be defined as freezer burn to the surface area of the active ingredient. In either case, the chemical change in the amino acid chain is not reversible and renders the vaccine spoiled or degraded in potency.
In the face of a reliable power grid and a committed, diligent, and well trained staff conducting vaccine distribution the integrity of the distribution process is secure. However as one or both of those variables change the integrity of the distribution process can easily fail. This has been the case in many areas of the world. The specific focus of our development has been to mitigate the failure point in this process introduced by the storage appliance used in the areas of the world absent a reliable power grid.
