A Covid-19 Vaccine – How are you going to store your Vaccines and ensure robust Cold Chain?
Pharmaceutical Companies around the world are in the final stages of the Clinical Trials for a range of Covid-19 Vaccines but there are some serious questions which we and our Governments need to ask ourselves – do we have the capability to store what will be the most valuable item on the planet?
Cold Chain requirements usually require a vaccine to be stored in a +2°C to +8°C Vaccine Grade Refrigerator yet there are reports out that the Pfizer vaccine will require their Covid vaccine to be stored in an Ultra Cold Freezer with a temperature of -70°C and the Moderna vaccine will require storage in a Freezer with a temperature of -20°C.
Having minus 0°C temperature storage requirements is not something most countries have established and available in large quantities so to help our local Hospitals, Governments, Clients and International Distributors please see below a detailed outline of the products Ethicheck is able to assist you with to ensure YOU ARE READY for the Covid-19 Vaccine!
Each Freezer features a Powder-coated steel exterior and stainless-steel interior, Internal chambers, Temperature range - 40°C to - 86°C, RS232 and USB connectivity, PID Microprocessor control with LCD graphic display and illuminated touch buttons, Audible and visual temperature alarms, open door alarm, 20mm access port, manual defrost, natural air convection and an auto-diagnostic function.
The Ultra Cold Freezers are manufactured in Poland with the highest quality features and meet all required storage needs for the Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine prior to moving the vaccine into a Vaccine Grade Refrigerator which needs to occur before vaccinating our communities.
With an RFID Refrigerator you are given full 24/7 visibility of your stock, what the expiry dates are, alerts when stock is getting close to expiry, who has taken stock out of the fridge and reports for when stock needs to be ordered so you have a fully automated Inventory Management system.
Say you are running low on stock and delivery of more is not due till tomorrow – what do you do?
Using the RFID Technology, you will be able to see across your entire organisation what stock is located where, enabling you to access additional stock from another ward for example.
Ensuring you are able to continue vaccinating!
Along with the Inventory Management system is the MATOS Monitoring solution which provides a robust independent Temperature Monitoring solution with real time alerting for a breach which needs attention, automatic cold chain reports emailed directly to your inbox and with all data stored on our Azure Cloud Server with no Software needed.
