Time and resources are at a premium in medical offices, and equipment that reliably does the job it was designed to do is key. The TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator does just that.
Our customers are amazed by the consistent temperatures, even as the vaccine fridge door is opened and closed throughout the day. Administration and paper work due to temperature excursions are virtually eliminated.
The temperature throughout the TempArmour Vaccine Refrigerator is very consistent and does not experience the issues of cold spots, temperature spikes and freezing which are common problems in vaccine refrigeration. TempArmour Refrigeration customers find that cold chain incidents related to refrigerator performance are virtually eliminated."I love it! I have used many vaccine refrigerators over the years and have never previously used one that keeps temperatures so stable even when being opened constantly throughout the day."
The top opening TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator allows easy access to vaccines and eliminates the need to stoop down to reach inventory on lower shelves.
Practitioners also appreciate the fact that they can safely take more time when retrieving vaccines from the TempArmour™. Since the cold air in the TempArmour™ is heavier than the air in the room, the cold air stays in this top-opening fridge much longer.
Vaccines are organized in the fridge using 3 baskets across the top and 2 baskets underneath. As the organization requirements of each medical office varies, a range of organization tools are provided, including dividers, trays, clip-on tags, color coded handles and labels. A vaccine layout diagram with magnets to affix to the outside of the refrigerator is also included for efficient vaccine management.
The TempArmour™ Refrigerator can store as much vaccine as typical upright refrigerators (comparable to 21 ft³ upright model). Its design and technology features result in extremely stable and consistent temperatures without the use of fans. This results in a more efficient use of space as it eliminates the need for spacing between vaccines, or between vaccines and refrigerator walls. The TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator can store over 70 boxes of 10 single dose syringes OR 200 boxes of 10 0.5 ml vials (based on typical manufacturer box sizes).
The min-max thermometer and data logger provided with each TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator are designed and calibrated to meet VFC requirements and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations in the USA; and Vaccine Storage and Handling Guidelines in Canada.
The TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator stays within the critical temperature range of 36-46°F (2-8°C) for up to 6 days during power outages or other disruptions to the operation of the fridge (unplugged cord, equipment malfunction, etc.). No more need for remote alarm notification systems and nurses on call through weekends and holidays!
Our organization recently purchased the TempArmour Vaccine Refrigerator as we were having concerns with our current vaccine fridge losing temperature very quickly with power interruptions. I have been very surprised by just how efficiently this fridge has worked since it arrived on site. We recently tested the unit to see just how long it would stay within acceptable range (2 - 8 degrees) following a loss of power, and are more than shocked to see that following 7 days it is just slipping below the acceptable limit.
