In the world of monitoring coronavirus vaccines during storage and handling, there are three general temperature profiles. These profiles include refrigerated 2°C to 8°C (36°F to 46°F), frozen -25°C to -15°C (-13°F to 5°F), and ultra-low temperature -80°C to -60°C (-112°F to -76°F). A data logger is used to provide complete monitoring and a record of temperatures of which vaccines have been exposed. The logger enables you to ensure that your vaccines’ potency is preserved and that they have not experienced any temperature excursions.
When considering the contributions of women in the industries that DeltaTrak serves, we are both inspired and awestruck. Women have been instrumental in major developments in the life sciences, food and so many other fields. They bring unique perspectives to problem-solving, business building and trail blazing. Many a successful person attributes the strides they’ve made to a mother or grandmother who charted the course, providing examples of hard work and sound decision-making along the way.
Real-Time Monitoring. Good for kids…and produce.
Imagine you’re a parent with three children – triplets actually – and your spouse is going away on a weekend jaunt to Napa Valley. This will be the first time you’re alone with the kids for an extended period, so you’re not really sure where to start. What do kids even do all day? Oh, that’s right. They play. But, growing up as an only child, you never really learned to play well with others. And, unfortunately, caring for things (animals, people) is just not in your DNA.
When people think of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, one of the first thoughts or questions usually concerns the extremely low temperature requirements to maintain the vaccine’s potency. But, how can you really know if you’re doing a good job in preserving the vaccines’ potency?
Per the CDC temperature requirements, Pfizer vaccines will be shipped and arrive at a storage facility between -80°C and -60°C (-112°F to -76°F) in a thermal shipping container with dry ice.
Walmart’s COVID-19 Response Will Help Millions
Healthcare providers around the world have begun offering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to the communities they serve. Some DeltaTrak customers actually started preparing a year ago to participate in the COVID-19 vaccine distribution. One of those customers is Walmart. According to Lisa Smith, Senior Director of Health & Wellness for Walmart, when their clinical team realized how quickly the COVID-19 virus was heading to the United States, they sprang into action,
