Remarkably, an estimated 30% of vaccines are wasted by a problem in the cold chain. The cold chain entails keeping products at a given temperature throughout the logistics process. Unfortunately, this wastage doesn’t merely occur during vaccination storage and transport; it occurs with many other temperature-sensitive products too.
That said, implementation of a sound cold chain needn’t be difficult. By establishing proper transport processes, ensuring back-ups and appropriate storage facilities, highly accurate temperature safeguarding can be achieved … and Phase Change Material can help you do so.
How, you ask? Phase Change Material refers to materials that transitions in phase, yet during this transition stays at the melting/solidification point temperature. By tweaking the PCM formula, this can be brought to a solidification point range of between 65 °C and +89 °C. We offer numerous PCM solutions, to help effectively safeguard your cold chain too.
