The development of corona vaccines is progressing at a rapid pace and now the safe distribution of vaccine doses must be realised. The new BionNTech vaccine must be transported and stored at -70 °C and therefore requires an uninterrupted cold chain. As a long-standing partner of the pharmaceutical industry and specialist for extreme temperatures, weisstechnik can offer suitable storage solu-tions for this.
Reliably generate and maintain deep-freeze temperatures down to -70 °C
The weisstechnik companies are the market leader for environmen-tal simulation and have many years of experience with extreme temperatures. The test cabinets and chambers generate and main-tain temperatures of -70 °C extremely evenly and reliably. They work energy-efficiently and with the specially developed environmentally friendly refrigerant WT69.
Climate containers, cabinets and lock systems
Vaccine logistics require different cooling capacities at different stages of the supply chain. Many of the offered climatic and temper-ature test cabinets quickly and safely reach -70°C. This makes them suitable for the temporary storage of smaller vaccine quantities in vaccination centres, hospitals or doctors' surgeries and for short-term capacity bottlenecks. Large batches at airports and distribution centres require walk-in or drive-in temperature chambers. Here weisstechnik offers containers that are quickly ready for operation, including lock systems to prevent icing, fail-safe refrigeration circuits and access controls.
Seamless documentation according to GMP and FDA
In order to document the tamper-proof compliance with the cold chain, weisstechnik uses its proven software S!MPATI® Pharma. This software records, documents, visualises and manages all relevant process data and fulfils all necessary requirements in accordance with EU GMP Annex 11 and FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
Experienced pharma specialist
For many years the weisstechnik companies have been developing solutions that are specially tailored to the requirements of the phar-maceutical and chemical industries, medical technology and labora-tories. Therefore, they are very aware of the high quality and safety standards and are able to reliably comply with all relevant standards and specifications.
