Understanding Why Proper Vaccine Storage is So Important

Understanding Why Proper Vaccine Storage Is So Important

Vaccine distribution is perhaps the most hot-button topic nowadays as COVID-19 continues to make its way through the population. One of the most important parts of distributing any vaccine, especially the various COVID-19 vaccines, is storing them properly until it comes time to use them. This is where we here at DigiVac can help. Vaccines must be kept at specific temperatures in order to extend their life. In this article, we’ll look into understanding why proper vaccine storage is so important. Vaccine Efficacy Perhaps the most obvious reason why proper vaccine storage is important is the loss in efficacy that

Fundamentals of Convection-Enhanced Pirani Gauges

Fundamentals of Convection-Enhanced Pirani Gauges Convection-enhanced Pirani gauges work on the same principle as thermocouple sensors, where vacuum measurement is made based on the rate of heat loss from an excited sensor wire. Additional heat loss occurs due to convection at higher pressures. This type of gauge takes advantage of this heat loss and the range of measurement is extended compared to a thermocouple-type sensor, whose usable range is considerably shorter. They also have a faster response time than thermocouples, in milliseconds compared to seconds. They are popular in a wide range of industries due to their wide range of measurement. DigiVac has
