On August 31, 2012, APHIS National Veterinary Stockpile featured questions and answers about FridgeFreeze Portable Refrigeration Units.
Published on July 4, 2012, page 3 of “Leski et al.: Leapfrog diagnostics: Demonstration of a broad spectrum pathogen identification platform in a resource-limited setting “, FridgeFreeze medical fridges and freezers are mentioned as being used in a research study in a severely resource-limited tropical setting where power was unreliable and maintaining a cold chain was difficult.
In March of 2011, Minnesota Department of Health mentioned FridgeFreeze in its examples of compressor coolers, saying “It is essential to maintain proper storage temperatures while transferring vaccine to another provider/clinic or transporting vaccine to an off-site clinic.” FridgeFreeze refrigerators are specially made for vaccine transportation.
