May 2017 - VaccinePorter® Carrier Systems

VaccinePorter® Carrier Systems

Keeping your medicines effective

Temperature controlled products are products which are actively or passively controlled at a level different from the surrounding environment. This is one of the most vital parts of transporting temperature sensitive products. Vaccines are transported in refrigerated containers to surgeries and local vaccine storage facilities where they are then stored in special vaccine fridges. Keeping the vaccines within the +2°C and +8°C temperature range throughout this process is 'maintaining the cold chain'. Having products too cold causes deterioration or too warm can render the vaccine inert. Vaccines need to be stored and managed correctly so that immunisations are carried out safely and efficiently reducing the risk of compromising the quality, efficacy and safety of the vaccine program.

Having a reliable system ensures that your products are not compromised when in transit. The VaccinePorter® range allows for a safe controlled transit of temperature sensitive products between +2°C and +8°C for up to 8 hours even with multiple openings. Validation documentation assures you that the controlled product will be safe in transit. Porters are available in various sizes allowing flexibility in vaccine transportation.

Each Porter comes with a lightweight fully replaceable polystyrene inner surrounded by a strong bag with secure Velcro fastening and a tamper evident facility. In order to maintain the validation for each Porter, regular visual and weight checks are to be carried out to the cool pack ensuring the weight and product is not compromised. The polystyrene inner will also need to be checked for and chips or damage. These signs could affect the validations and will need to be replaced before use.

To learn more or to request a product demonstration please call 0800 0328 428 or email sales@helapet.co.uk.

Tamper-evident IV Syringe Caps for luer lock syringes are a practical, cost-effective solution for the protection of syringes once they have left the sterile preparation area. An easy-to-use alternative to sticky tamper-evident tape or shrink wrap, Tamper Evident IV Syringe Caps maintain the product integrity of the syringe and allows clinical professionals to visually identify any evidence of tampering before administration.

Manufactured from latex-free materials, each cap can be applied to a luer lock syringe using the specially designed sterile tray packaging. Each sterile tray contains ten caps that are individually secured with a simple twist of the syringe, negating the risk touch contamination and enhancing aseptic technique.
