Innovative storage device keeps vaccines at the appropriate temperature

Diseases like polio have been eradicated in many countries through vaccination; however, they are still prominent in parts of the developing world. One of the greatest challenges in reaching children for vaccination is the sensitive nature of vaccines themselves, which spoil if not kept at precise temperatures from manufacture to use.

The Intellectual Ventures (IV) Lab team, in partnership with IV’s Global Good program, set out to address this by developing an insulated container to strengthen and extend vaccination services in developing countries. Our Passive Vaccine Storage Device is designed to keep vaccines at the appropriate temperatures for a month or more with repeat vaccine retrievals and no need for electricity.
