The refrigerator’s unique characteristics address typical vaccine storage challenges to essentially eliminate cold chain incidents and vaccine losses due to temperature excursions.
The TempArmour™ fridge is a pharmaceutical grade refrigerator that is purpose-built to maintain proper temperatures throughout the storage unit to protect vaccine viability. The internal temperature remains very stable, making cold spots, freezing and temperature spikes a thing of the past. This fridge doesn't need to be lined with water bottles for temperature stability and every inch of the fridge can be used for storage with confidence that all vaccines are within the required temperature range of 2-8 °C (36-46 ºF). This refrigerator is not dependent on fans for temperature stability, therefore spacing between vaccines is not a requirement.
Temparmour™ Refrigerators and freezers also maintain their temperature in range for several days in the event that their operation is disrupted. For example, due to power outages, unplugged cords, etc. No backup power required!

“The Vaccines For Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program (in the USA) that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay. CDC buys vaccines at a discount and distributes them to grantees—i.e., state health departments and certain local and territorial public health agencies—which in turn distribute them at no charge to those private physicians' offices and public health clinics registered as VFC providers.” www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/vfc/index.html

We experienced a power outage due to Hurricane Irma for 6 days. The temperatures in our TempArmour™ Refrigerator stayed in range that entire time - the highest temperature recorded was 42.1 degrees F.
The peace of mind that this gives us regarding our expensive vaccine stock is priceless. Even without a power outage, we have had excursions with other refrigerator-only units. During hurricane preparation, having to move vaccine stock to a facility with a generator is a pain, and this time one of the hospitals we used in the past was unable to accept our vaccine (from our other office that did not have a TempArmour™ refrigerator) and we had to scramble to find another place to take it.
When we need to replace the unit in our other office, I will definitely purchase another TempArmour™. In fact, if finances allow, may purchase sooner!!
Thank you for your product!!
