B Medical Systems’ and Dr. Reddy’s join hands for the pan India rollout of Sputnik V vaccines

Mumbai: B Medical Systems, a global leader in the vaccine cold chain industry has announced a partnership with Dr. Reddy’s for providing reliable cold chain solutions for the pan India rollout of Sputnik V vaccines. Under this collaboration, B Medical Systems will install several hundreds of vaccine freezers across the country for the national roll-out of Sputnik V vaccines.

Sputnik V is the third Covid-19 vaccine to be granted emergency use authorization by India and the ‘first foreign-made vaccine’ to be used in India. Sputnik V, an adenovirus viral vector vaccine, needs specialized storage and is required to be kept at a temperature of -18 °C or below, necessitating the need for a more stringent vaccine cold chain. Dr. Reddy’s had launched a limited pilot soft launch in May and will start the full-scale vaccine rollout in the coming days.

Under this collaboration, B Medical Systems will offer its vaccine freezers that provide a storage temperature as low as -25°C. These units were dispatched by air cargo from Luxembourg to meet the immediate requirements. As a part of this collaboration, B Medical Systems’ freezers will be placed across all major hospital chains in the country this week.  The vaccine freezers from B Medical Systems are WHO PQS certified and certified class I medical devices. These units have been used across the world and have proven their reliability even in extreme hostile weather conditions.

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. As a part of its India operations, B Medical Systems is also introducing flexible leasing models and various service packages.

Sputnik V vaccine is highly thermosensitive and B Medical Systems is honored to be partnering with Dr. Reddy’s in the roll-out of Sputnik V vaccines. We have worked closely with Dr.Reddy’s to put in place a highly reliable vaccine cold chain infrastructure for this. These are medical-grade freezers, that are also WHO PQS certified. Our technology ensures that vaccines stored inside are not exposed to any temperature excursions and are maintained at their fullest efficacy. Our remote monitoring solutions ensure that there is end-to-end traceability of the storage conditions. We are proud to bring state-of-the-art medical-grade cold chain equipment to India for the first time, and believe this will be a game-changer towards improving the vaccine cold chain in India. I would also like to thank our nationwide service partners, who will be installing these units across the country for us.’’- said Mr. Jesal Doshi, CEO of B Medical Systems India Pvt Ltd.
