How important are Pharmacy Fridges?

pharma fridgesWhen it comes to pharmaceutical refrigerators, there is often a need for custom built bespoke pharmacy fridges as domestic fridges do not quite make the cut. In recent years, more stringent regulation has called for pharmaceutical companies to adhere to industries standards for the cold storage of temperature sensitive products such as blood samples and vaccines.

Pharmacies across the world rely on certain pharmacy fridges to successfully sustain low temperatures and preserve medications in an optimum state.

Cold storage units for pharmacies come in a range of sizes, shapes or forms such as chromatography refrigerators or pharmacy refrigerators with multiple pallets, pass through refrigerators and standard Laboratory Pharmacy refrigerators. They are used in different areas of medicine also, for example, mortuary fridges.

These units are all U.L listed units. UL Standards encompass UL's extensive safety research, scientific expertise and quality. They vary form size from units that exceed 24 cubic feet. There are also smaller cold stores available which are used for commercial pharmacies and tailored to fit in enclosed spaces. Larger units may have multiple doors for easy of entry and exit. Pharmacy fridges are capable of maintaining temperatures of between -35 degrees Celsius all the way up to hotter temperatures of +50 degrees.

When you are looking to purchase a pharmacy fridge, it’s important to look for certain features that match your needs. For example, some contents may need to be displayed using a transparent door. You may need extra temperature control systems that give you that extra control. Security features are also of great importance, alarm systems and phone-in phone-out features are available.

Do your research about which companies to purchase from, look for reviews and a well-known brand that you believe is reliable. If you are choosing to rent or lease make sure the service levels of your cold storage providers match your expectations. Your choice of company is very important as the safety of the general public is at risk if equipment is not up to scratch.

Temperature fluctuations of just a few degrees will cause the enzymes to denature, meaning samples, medicines and other pharmaceutical products will be useless.
