Global vaccination programs have led to a dramatic reduction in childhood deaths from diseases such as measles and diphtheria, as well as the near-eradication of polio. By letting workers know at a glance whether a vaccine has been exposed to a heat or freeze event, our irreversible time-temperature indicators play a vital role in the success of these programs.
Our time-temperature monitoring device continues to be the only technology that meets the strict specifications of the world’s leading health organization for distributing vaccines to developing countries, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) PQS VVM performance specification, and we follow WHO’s guidelines for manufacturers of temperature monitoring devices.
Increasingly, forward-looking governments are using HEATmarker® vaccine vial monitors (VVMs) and other Temptime® indicators as point-of-use management tools to:
- Establish well-recognized quality systems for vaccines that protect their citizens
- Ensure best practices as a steward of monies donated or made available for vaccination efforts
- Adopt best practices in global distribution
