LAKE GENEVA — A Lake Geneva-based manufacturer is working to protect new COVID-19 vaccines as they roll out across the country.
Primex is using their OneVue Sense technology to monitor temperatures in the storage units where the new vaccines are being stored.

Primex is also offering other tools in the fight against COVID-19, including contact closure monitoring, which can be used in hospital isolation rooms and to ensure freezer storage doors remain closed in pharmacies, the company said in a press release Tuesday.
Some of the vaccines require storage temperatures around -94 °F. That's why Primex is using their technology to make sure the vaccines remain cold and safe.
Primex said OneVue Sense Temperature Sensor with a cryogenic temperature probe can monitor storage units as cold as -328 °F (-200 °C).
The technology allows local officials to receive real-time alerts if the temperature within the vaccine storage area leaves a specified range.
