Storage for Cold Chain Products Temperature-sensitive products need extra vigilance for maintenance of storage conditions. The U.S. FDA and WHO have stringent specifications for the design and construction of storage space for cold chain products. Catering to this critical aspect, Getz Pharma's warehouse also houses cold storage space for temperaturesensitive products. Getz Pharma's Cold Storage space is 2624 cubic feet where temperature is maintained at 2 C - 8 C. This Cold Storage facility is equipped with a temperature chart recorder, digital thermometer, backup generator and hooters to ensure the requisite vigilance. Calibrated devices are set on the temperature between 2 C - 8 C and in the unlikely event of the temperature trend goes out of the specified limits, an alarm sets off and sends the signals to the maintenance engineers who are equipped to rectify the system within minutes. This system is operational and functional 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
