Carrier mobile coldstores for vaccines

Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA: Carrier Pods, monitored by Sensitech, allow customers to expand their cold storage capacity.

Carrier’s containers use Sensitech’s monitoring systems with options for deep-freeze cooling, real-time telematics, data analytics and product visibility.

Carrier’s recently announced Lynx digital platform is expected to provide added connectivity by the end of the year. Additionally, the mobility of Carrier Pods allows vaccine administrators flexibility to move vaccine storage to other locations.

“Maintaining the temperature integrity of vaccines is critical. Our mobile storage solutions for vaccines and other perishables use reliable, industry-leading technologies with precise temperature control, premium airflow and operational efficiency,” said Kartik Kumar, vice president and general manager, Global Container Refrigeration, Carrier.
“For greater visibility, customers can remotely monitor the conditions of the container and cargo around the clock with our telematics.”

Carrier Pods comply with Good Distribution Practice guidelines for pharmaceutical products and address stringent regulatory temperature verification requirements for vaccines. The Sensitech solutions can monitor a wide range of temperatures, including dry ice conditions.

“There are several Covid-19 vaccines in development, and each has its own set of strict requirements,” said Mike Hurton, vice president and general manager, Sensitech. “Our comprehensive monitoring solutions can move with the product enabling drug manufacturers and their distributors to help ensure product quality and compliance.”

Carrier Pods monitored by Sensitech are one of the solutions offered through Carrier’s Healthy, Safe, Sustainable Cold Chain Program to preserve and protect the supply of food, medicine and vaccines.
