Blackfrog Technologies’ patented tech enables safe last-mile transport of vaccines

Basic Information

Founded by Mayur Shetty and Donson Dsouza in 2015 as an engineering consultancy, Blackfrog Technologies transitioned into a product company to address the need for efficient vaccine storage and transportation. It has one aim: to be “the future of medical-grade refrigeration”. Blackfrog’s flagship product, Emvólio, is a portable, battery-powered refrigeration device that strictly maintains any pre-set temperature up to 12 hours for last-mile transport of vaccines. The device maintains the optimum temperature of two and eight degrees Celsius that vaccines and other biological samples need. The patented rapid cooling technology can be used for safe last-mile transport of vaccines, breast milk, blood serums and plasmas, medications, and specimens with minimal freeze-thaw cycles. Other capabilities include continuous temperature monitoring, location tracking, state of charge indication, communication with headquarters via live tracking, and vital statistics for improved coverage.
