Our Story

In 2015, Polio and Pentavalent vaccine worth more than Rs. 400 Million was spoiled due to inadequate temperature control and monitoring. This made up national news headlines and also caught our attention. FIA investigation revealed that the vaccine was not expired but spoiled because the correct temperature could not be maintained in the store room. We further did an extensive outreach into various hospitals, pharmacies and blood banks and found out that there was no effective mechanism for temperature monitoring of vaccines, drugs and blood storage in Pakistan. As per common practice, temperature is recorded manually twice or thrice a day on paper-based logs while there is no system in place for generating alerts if temperature exceeds the desired range. To address this grave issue our company indigenously developed an internet of things (IoT)-based real-time temperature monitoring system, that senses temperatures at few minutes’ intervals, saves temperature data online and generates alerts when cold chain breaks.
