Many vaccines must be maintained at low temperatures. Easy enough when you
have a refrigerator or freezer handy, but a big challenge when your task
is to transport a batch of vaccines to another continent in tropical climates.
Thanks to a special expanded polystyrene package, vaccines are being transported

3ml vaccines together with 4 kg (10 pounds) of dry ice. The thermal insulation
properties of expanded polystyrene maintain the required temperature inside
the sealed package for 72 hours.
