Are you looking for safe storage for medicines and vaccines?
KIRSCH is the market leader for pharmaceutical refrigerators in Germany. Each refrigerator is particularly made to meet the demanding DIN 58345 regulation. Our products are market leading in temperature stability and quality.
The average value of storage goods in a medicine refrigerator is 20.000€. To this day, the vaccines are improperly stored in household refrigerators resulting in spoils due to fluctuating temperatures. Tainted vaccines are at best no longer effective, at worst they lead to complications when vaccinated. This has to change, because the safety of your patients is priceless.
The pharmaceutical refrigerators according to DIN norm guarantee the maximum temperature consistency and storage safety. Because not everything always runs smoothly, according to DIN norm the refrigerators must also be equipped with safety features, e.g. warnings in case of power failure, temperature deviations, etc. that no household refrigerators have. Furthermore, the state-of-the-art refrigerators (ULTIMATE line) are also equipped with access control monitoring system to prevent your valuable goods being taken and/or modified by unauthorized personnel.
All KIRSCH pharmaceutical refrigerators of the ULTIMATE and PRO-ACTIVE lines are designed to meet the requirements of DIN 58345. In fact, as a pioneer in the construction of pharmaceutical refrigerators, our devices met all those requirements even before DIN was introduced. Every avoided case of tainted medicines or vaccines increases patient safety and saves you trouble and money.
