Depending on what vaccine you’re transporting, and where you’re transporting it to and from, cold chain requirements can change dramatically. Ensuring you have a solution in place that ensures the efficacy of your vaccine payload, and is flexible to the demands of various vaccine temperature requirements is crucial to operating a cost-effective, and secure vaccine cold chain.
By now you’ll be acutely aware that the various COVID-19 vaccines coming onto the market require different temperature control to ensure efficacy. For example, the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines require -70°C, -20°C, and 2 – 8°C storage respectively. Not only do they have different temperature requirements, but they survive for different periods of time outside of those temperature ranges before losing efficacy.
Depending on what continent you’re on, and what vaccines you’re shipping, the logistics supporting your COVID-19 vaccine roll out can get complicated. That’s why we’ve developed universal temperature-controlled packaging solutions that can be used multiple times, and across all of the required COVID-19 vaccine temperature ranges maintaining temperature stability for a minimum of 96 hours.
ORCA Multi-Use allows you to ship vaccines with the same box multiple times, and at whatever temperature range you require. From the deep-frozen temperatures of -70°C using dry ice, right up to 15 – 25°C using our interchangeable phase change materials (PCM), you can ship any of the COVID-19 vaccines using the same box, for as long as you need it. And, with ORCA Connect, you can achieve the exact same performance benefits as ORCA Multi-Use, but with the added benefit of a dedicated space for an onboard data logger, enabling you to track both payload temperature, and location of your payload.
These universal solutions will save you time and money without compromising on quality, as they cut down on stock holding requirements and make switching between different payload temperature needs quick and easy to do. To swap between temperature ranges simply order bottles at the desired temperature range in our components store then pre-conditioning and swapping when needed.
