Our sincerest appreciation and THANK YOU to all of the healthcare and front-line workers during this COVID-19 pandemic.
On October 22-24, 2016, TempArmour™ Refrigeration traveled to San Francisco, California to take part in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) 2016 National Conference & Exhibition.
To demonstrate the incredible hold-over time of the TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator, it was unplugged on Tuesday, October 18th and shipped to the AAP Conference site. When the fridge was opened at the tradeshow three days later on Saturday, October 22nd, the temperature was 5.1°C (41.2°F). On Monday, October 24th, when we were ready to pack up again, the temperature remained at 5.6°C (42.1°F), well below the upper limit of 8°C (46°F). The TempArmour™ refrigerator was still safely within temperature range to keep vaccines protected after 6 days without being plugged in!Read More

We are very proud of our high rate of repeat customers. Many of our customers start out by trying one TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator and quickly see the difference between it and other vaccine refrigerators in their office. The TempArmour™ Refrigerator's advantages are especially evident when there is a power outage. This was the case recently with a Pediatric Medical Group in California. This medical office has two vaccine refrigerators in their office: one TempArmour™ Refrigerator as well as another brand of vaccine refrigerator (standard upright model).Read More
However, the effective organization of vaccines is simpler than you may imagine using the baskets, dividers, trays, color-coded handles, tags, labels and other accessories included with each TempArmour™ Refrigerator.
August is National Immunization Awareness Month and there are lots of resources available to help get the message out about the importance of immunization for both adults and children!
The National Public Health Information Coalition collaborated with the CDC to put together an organized toolkit of promotional resources including vaccine information, graphics, sample news releases, and promotional messages. There is even a suggested schedule of weekly themes that can be used to get your message out.Read More
The Canadian immunization Conference brings together over 1000 professionals in the immunization field every second year. This year the Conference features over 80 speakers from across Canada and abroad who will be addressing a wide range of immunization topics. There will also be more than 30 exhibits showcased in the trade show.
Come visit us at booth 29 and see the TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator in action!
The TempArmour™ refrigerator will be unplugged prior to shipping to the Conference where you will see firsthand how the temperature within the TempArmour™ Refrigerator will still be in range several days later…without the use of backup power!
