Low temperature transport and storage solutions for COVID-19 vaccines
Presentation of two options suitable for mRNA vaccines: one using a traditional refrigerated container adapted to storage at -35°C extending the shelf life of dry ice by 2.5 times, the other based on PCM allowing to maintain -21°C for several hours.
Most COVID-19 vaccines – including messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines – require compliance with very low temperatures for their transport and storage. The Pfizer vaccine requires temperatures between -80°C and -60°C, while the Moderna vaccine requires −30 °C.
Current transport methods use dry...
