Monitoring vaccine temperature can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Separating the task into different components and answering two key questions makes it much easier. First, which vaccine do you need to monitor—Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson? Second, are you looking for a temperature monitoring product to use during the vaccine transport or during storage?
Of the three COVID-19 vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), the Pfizer vaccine requires the most extreme temperature conditions.
We’re halfway through International Women’s Month and we’ve truly enjoyed the great interviews with DeltaTrak’s customers. This week, we spoke with a woman in technology - Product Manager, Ruby Wang. Her company, Hwy Haul, is a digital freight brokerage platform which connects shippers with truck drivers. Ruby is passionate about using technology to improve the human experience, and that passion clearly guides her work.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, I spoke with some DeltaTrak customers in the produce industry to get their thoughts on issues affecting women, and the supply chain. Kim A. is the distribution manager for CrunchPak and Lisa M. is a shipping clerk with Gebber’s Farms. I was impressed with the fact that both women are long-term employees with their respective companies. They both seem to genuinely enjoy their roles. Both women are mothers, and spoke about being fortunate to have the flexibility they need to manage their lives. It was awesome to hear this, because everyone knows work-life balance is often hard to achieve.
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.
