B Medical Systems and 1mg join hands for a reliable cold chain infrastructure for COVID-19 vaccine distribution

Mumbai: B Medical Systems, a global leader of vaccine cold chain equipment has signed a collaboration agreement with 1mg, India’s leading digital consumer healthcare platform and online pharmacy to safely store and transport COVID-19 vaccines for its immunization drives across the country. Under the agreement, B Medical Systems will support 1mg’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign across metros and Tier 1 cities.

1mg, India’s leading online pharmacy has secured several thousands of COVID-19 vaccine doses and has signed up with several corporates, residential societies, and local clinics for the nationwide vaccination campaigns.  However, these vaccines need specialized storage and, in some cases, they even need a storage temperature as low as -18 °C or below. This requires reliable cold chain infrastructure and 1mg is collaborating with B Medical Systems for its immunization campaigns across the country. Under the collaboration, B Medical Systems is supplying ultra-low freezers and transport boxes to 1mg for the storage and transport of COVID-19 vaccines.

“Vaccines are thermosensitive. Hence a highly reliable cold chain is critical to maintain the potency of these vaccines. The cold chain infrastructure set up by 1mg is commendable and we are extremely proud to be supporting 1mg in their nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaigns. Our products will ensure that none of the vials are exposed to temperature excursions and vaccines are administered in its fullest potency. Our remote monitoring solutions ensure that there is an end-to-end traceability of the storage conditions’’- said Mr. Jesal Doshi, CEO of B Medical Systems India Pvt Ltd.

“We are proud to partner with B Medical Systems to roll out COVID-19 vaccines across India. 1mg wants to be at the forefront of COVID-19 vaccination drive in the country by leveraging our strong network and partnerships. The world class cold chain technology offered by B Medical Systems brings us one step closer to this goal by expanding access to vaccines while ensuring highest standards of cold chain maintenance.’’ – said Varun Mimani, VP Supply Chain, 1mg

B Medical Systems has more than 40 years of experience in vaccine cold chain. The company offers products that can store any COVID-19 vaccine and has been supporting the COVID-19 vaccination campaigns across the world. B Medical Systems recently started its India operations and is ramping up its production to meet the significant demand for its cold chain products including vaccine refrigerators and vaccine transport boxes.
