Portable Chemical Cooler Can Maintain Cold Chain for Vaccines Which Will Save Millions of Lives

A new portable cooling device to improve vaccine transportation in developing countries has been announced as the UK winner of the 2016 James Dyson Award.

ISOBAR can keep vaccines cold for up to six days and can be recharged on the go in just over an hour, providing a safe and effective means of transportation.

The device was invented by Loughborough University Industrial Design and Technology graduate William Broadway as part of his final year project.
