Since you have to monitor the vaccines continuously to ensure the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines, the Meling vaccines refrigerators are specially designed with microprocessor temperature control system to ensure excellent temperature accuracy. The vaccine medical grade refrigerators come with digital temperature display and can display the temperature in high-precision of 0.1℃. They have security alarm system, including high/low temperature alarm, high/low voltage alarm, sensor failure alarm, power failure alarm, etc. And it can ensure the internal fans for even temperature distribution throughout.


When storing vaccines in the refrigerators or freezers, you not only need to monitor the vaccines constantly, but also have to record the vaccine temperature at regular intervals.
