When you have to transport vaccines, it’s important to maintain a stable temperature to keep the delicate chemical structure in balance. This temperature is usually below freezing. If the temperature rises too high in transit, it can damage the vaccines or make them less potent for the end user. This is why a vaccine temperature monitor is so important.

What Does a Vaccine Temperature Monitor Do?

Here is some information about how a vaccine temperature monitor works.

  • Monitors low temperatures: Most vaccine temperature monitors are made to withstand and accurately monitor low or ultra-low temperatures because most vaccines require such low temperatures. They come equipped with a thermal-buffered detachable probe that can accurately read the temperature of the shipping container, vaccine, or otherwise.
  • Easy access logs: As the vaccine temperature monitor takes samples of the temperature, it will also record the data and automatically upload it into the cloud, so it can be accessed remotely, or onto an electronic data log that can be downloaded onto your device via USB. This way, you can easily access the temperature readings while the vaccines are in transit or once they have reached their final destinations.
  • Warning alarms included: Most vaccine temperature monitors will also come equipped with low battery indicators and temperature alarms if a higher temperature is read. That way, you can be alerted immediately if the monitor is nearly out of power, so it won’t just stop working halfway through transit. You can also be alerted if the temperatures rise too high for the vaccines, so you can quickly make the necessary adjustments.
