Why is a UPS required for a pharmacy refrigerator?

UPS (uninterruptible power supply) availability extends beyond the typical applications commonly associated with requiring backup power. Unlike applications where a sudden power failure causes data loss or other operational issues, power loss to pharmacy refrigerators or laboratory freezers prevents medical personnel from being able to open the fridge and retrieve vaccinations. Provided the door is unopened, in the event of power loss, a typical medicine fridge will maintain the internal temperature for up to 4 hours.

The recent news of a Coronavirus vaccine breakthrough has brought pharmaceutical refrigerators into the public eye. Mainly highlighting the fact that vaccines, diluents, immunoglobulins and other medicines have precise temperature requirements, most of which must be kept between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius (35.6F to 46.4F). If the temperature rises above 8 degrees Celsius then according to the NHS Green Book, the ‘cold chain’ has been broken and the contents of the fridge must be rendered as damaged and destroyed.

To maintain the proper temperature ranges, the freezer and refrigerator units must be in good working condition and they must have power at all times. Having vaccinations destroyed due to a power outage is costly and those who need urgent access to a vaccine may have to wait longer.
