UNICEF reports 50% wastage of all vaccines in the entire cold chain, mainly due to improper handling, poor storage facilities compounded by intermittent power or no power situations in remote locations. Conventional vaccine refrigerators offer poor temperature control and short holdover times. However Sure chill‘s revolutionary technology maintains the precise temperature in the 2-8°C band, a must for vaccine preservation. Even without power, Sure Chill technology can continue to actively cool for as long as 12 days. This is revolutionising immunization programmes around the globe, saving millions of lives.
