The importance of low temperature refrigerators in the prevention and control of COVID-19
Under the 2020 COVID-19 crisis, the world has launched a difficult battle against the epidemic. Under the background of the continuous development of scientific and technological resources and medical standards, and with the unremitting efforts of many researchers and experts, countries have now been Significant achievements have been made in research, testing and diagnosis, and drug and vaccine development. At the same time, public health systems, testing laboratories, vaccine and drug development companies are facing huge challenges and pressures in terms of new equipment, new technologies, and new strategies.

Taking the current high-profile and accelerated COVID-19 vaccine as an example, it is the vaccine manufacturers and various regulatory agencies that clear the barriers for the general public in vaccine research and development, clinical trials, production and marketing, storage and distribution and other key processes. Precise design, calculation, test and quality control.

According to a report issued by the World Health Organization, about 50% of vaccines worldwide are wasted during transportation and distribution due to substandard temperature control each year. Under the new crown epidemic, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization recommend: Establish an implementation plan for low-temperature storage and temperature monitoring according to application purposes, effectively use the limited global supply of low-temperature storage equipment, and protect the integrity of the vaccine. For example: Use a high-performance cryogenic storage box with compact design, uniform temperature distribution, and fast temperature recovery for professional vaccine storage.

During the development and production of vaccines, the temperature control of samples, strains, production materials and final product storage also plays a key role, and the reliability of samples depends on the reliability of their storage units.

LABOAO provides a comprehensive (2°C to -164°C) and reliable ultra-low temperature storage and monitoring program, which provides the necessary precise temperature control for virology research, test samples and reagents, sample and raw material storage, frozen storage of biological preparations, and final product storage , Committed to the integrity protection of various sample types, and provides a wide range of volume options from 50 to 936 liters.

According to the situation of epidemic prevention and control, nucleic acid testing can be carried out at any time. Low-temperature refrigerators are included in the routine equipment of the new coronavirus nucleic acid testing laboratory! Various countries and regions have initiated the establishment of PCR laboratories. And how to establish a standard nucleic acid testing laboratory? How to choose better hardware equipment has become a problem that plagues many of our hospitals.

To complete a set of PCR experiments, it usually requires four experimental processes including reagent preparation, sample processing, nucleic acid amplification and product analysis. The experimental rooms for these four experimental processes should be arranged adjacently to form an independent PCR experimental area. The standard PCR experiment area includes: reagent preparation area, specimen preparation area, amplification area, product analysis area, buffer areas and public corridors for each area. Low temperature refrigerators have become common equipment in PCR laboratories. The laboratory low-temperature refrigerator is used most frequently! Whether it is a 2~8°C refrigerator, a -20°C refrigerator or a -86°C refrigerator, they all play an important role in the storage of reagents and specimens in the PCR laboratory! To this end, LABOAO has formulated a standardized PCR laboratory safe storage solution for the detection of new coronary pneumonia, to provide safety guarantee for sample storage!
