Medical Coolers Refrigeration Units
Medical logistics are complicated by the fact that many medicines and vaccines require temperature-controlled transportation from factory to patient. Conventional refrigerated trucks maintain supplies in the desired temperature envelope during long-distance transit, but they cannot maintain optimal conditions once the cargo is unloaded. Therefore, they provide a partial but not complete solution to these challenges.
Portable medical refrigeration units complete the cold chain. They enable practitioners to maintain temperature control in the clinic and the field, even after temperature-controlled unloading.
