Insulin Temperature Shield
Did you know that Insulin deteriorates when exposed to warm weather ?If you depend on insulin, keep your insulin with you. With this high-end device manufactured in England, have confidence that your insulin remains potent, whether you are at home close to your fridge, or whether you are far away, either on a plane or stuck in traffic.
EviaCool is a reusable replacement cap for insulin pens. EviaCool is intended to keep insulin cool within safe temperatures below 29°C (84.2°F) for a minimum of 12 hours even in a constant environmental temperature of 37.8°C (100°F), when the device is placed inside a personal handbag. The cap temperature regulation is passive and combines thermal insulation with heat absorbent material.
The cap is ‘reactivated’/’filled up’ to provide safe storage conditions, whenever the ambient temperature gets below 26°C (78.8°F), for subsequent periods of 12 hours and for up to 365 days (one year).
Note that insulin must always be at the manufacturer’s recommended temperature. Please refer to the insulin package insert of your specific insulin pen. The EviaCool fits most insulin pens sold in Nigeria. Available here on Jumia.
To fully appreciate the importance of keeping your insulin within the recommended temperature, please ask at your next appointment with an endocronologist.
