Cold Chain Equipment ( C E & W.H.O APPROVED ) / Medical equipment.

Vaccine Carriers Ice Packs Cold Boxes (Long Range) Cold Boxes (Short Range) Hub Cutter
Cold Chain Equipment is the lifeline for heat-sensitive vaccines and is essential for transportation of these vaccines from the place of manufacturing to the place of field storage and final carriage to the place of immunization. Thus, CFC-free cold chain equipment ensures a pre-determined safe temperature range (-3 to + 10 C) for a particular period known as cold life of the product. The cold life period varies according to the product classifications made by WHO i.e for large equipment like cold boxes, the cold life is high whereas for small equipment like vaccine carriers the cold life requirement is less.

WHO has formulated rigorous test procedures for maintenance of cold life and for overall strength of the equipment and its fittings, to withstand various rough field usage conditions.

The equipment has to undergo tests like drop test covering 26 drops (all sides, corners and faces) of the box to ensure compliance with rigid WHO standards and requirements. WHO approval is accorded only after successful clearance of all tests by the test laboratories.

AOV International is an ISO 9001:2000 certified company manufacturing a wide range of CFC-free Cold Chain Equipments as per WHO specifications and standards. The range of Cold Chain Equipments has been type-tested at WHO test laboratory namely M/s PSB International, Singapore. our Cold Chain Equipment is approved by WHO and also by other UN organizations. AOV has the requisite manufacturing and testing facilities thereby ensuring quality production as per the stringent requirements of WHO. The equipment is selected on the bases of parameters and per the specific requirements of buyers. Our Cold Chain Equipment is at par with international standards.
