What monitoring solutions are prequalified by the WHO?
Among the many factors that play a vital role in the administration of effective vaccines to children is temperature. Each vaccine product is manufactured differently and hence has a specific sensitivity to temperature.
WHO approved vaccines are sensitive to heat and freezing and those that are liquid require refrigeration.
Thus, the temperature of these vaccines needs to be monitored and maintained throughout the supply chain. For patient safety, simple, effective temperature monitoring is key. The following WHO prequalified temperature monitoring devices developed and manufactured by ELPRO can be used throughout the whole cold supply chain:
This is the latest innovation from ELPRO, it monitors solutions for products in transit and provides end-to-end temperature indication on the kit or tray. It is smaller, thinner, more durable, more intelligent and less costly than any other indicator on the market. By using any smartphone, you can read the data at a touch of a button.
