Keeping Vaccines Active
Here at Ideabatic, we are driven by a single goal; giving every person a chance at life. According to the WHO, up to 85% of vaccines are damaged by temperature fluctuations in the crucial 'last mile' of their journey.
Current carriers are, at best, inefficient cool boxes. SMILE, the Smart Last-mile Vaccination Cooling System, will allow us to transport these life-saving vaccines using state-of-the-art technology.
We want to eradicate debilitating diseases such as diphtheria, hepatitis B and meningitis for the next generation of children everywhere. Many vaccines go to waste simply as a result of poor storage conditions.
We aim to change this by preserving vaccines and protecting humanity in the difficult last mile of life.
One Cool Journey
Temperature variation of current vaccine carriers
The current vaccine carrier freezes vaccines within the first hour of transport, damaging them. It then maintains the vaccines at 2-8 degrees Celsius for only 14 hours. Some last mile journeys can last up to seven days.
