Minus40 take pride in assisting in quality healthcare and have donated a B130/10/220H Holdover Vaccine Refrigerator to the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation whom treat, support and assist HIV patients.
The B130 Vaccine Refrigerator was specifically developed to WHO PQS specification standards and sponsored by the South African National Department of Health together with independent testing by the CSIR. This unit was designed for duty where there is risk to reliable and continuous power supply. It will hold the fridge temperature between 2˚C and 8˚C for more than 48 hours at an ambient temperature up to 32˚C. This gives clients the assurance that their vaccines will retain its efficacy and shelf life, provided electrical power is restored within 48 hours. The vaccine refrigerator also has the unique feature of having a freezer compartment for freezing ice packs that are subsequently used in cooler boxes for transporting vaccines to remote locations during vaccination campaigns. The B130 Vaccine refrigerator is built to handle the robust duties expected in an African environment with a legacy of longevity in the field (early examples are still working after more than 20 years’ service.). The unit comes with the Minus 40 Warranty and can be specified with a service package.
Our very own Sales Executive for the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Free State, Angola and Namibia, Twanette Muller, was on site to do the handover in which the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation are very grateful. Twanette was in turn told by the staff of the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation that they only believe and trust in the Minus40 product. They have previously ordered directly from us and we were glad we could assist in donating a unit.
