B Medical Systems S.à r.l (formely Dometic/Electrolux) is a global manufacturer and distributor of medical cold chain solutions. Based in Hosingen, Luxembourg, the company was founded in 1979, when the WHO approached the Swedish manufacturing giant Electrolux to provide a solution to safely store and transport vaccines around the world. Across the 3 major business portfolios of Medical Refrigeration, Blood Management Solutions, and Vaccine Cold Chain, the company currently offers over 100 models. B Medical Systems’ major products include Laboratory Refrigerators, Laboratory Freezers, Pharmacy Refrigerators, Ultra-Low Freezers, Plasma Freezers, Contact Shock Freezers, Vaccine Refrigerators (Ice-Lined Refrigerators and Solar Direct Drive Refrigerators), and Transport Boxes. All products have integrated 24/7 temperature monitoring capabilities that further ensure that these products offer the highest level of safety and reliability.
Throughout its over 40 years of experience, the company has created innovative solutions to store and transport pharmaceuticals, blood components, laboratory specimens, vaccines, and more across the world safely and reliably. Its commitment to supporting health institutions, governments, and NGOs has not only saved innumerable lives but helped entire communities develop and prosper.
The company’s products are essential to hospitals, health centres, blood banks, laboratories and more, as their great reliability and efficiency ensures that any biological requiring cold storage can indeed be stored safely at its intended temperature. As modern medicine becomes more complex and very often requires the use of unstable compounds or produces thermosensitive solutions, B Medical Systems’ medical cold chain equipment provides the peace of mind scientists and healthcare workers need in their day-to-day life.
Moreover, as the established market leader in the Vaccine Cold Chain for the past 40 years, B Medical Systems has provided equipment to support its partners in vaccinating more than 350 million children in developing countries. Through its long-lasting relationships with global humanitarian organisations such as UNICEF, the WHO, Gavi, Health Ministries, etc., B Medical Systems has installed more than five hundred thousand units across 140+ countries across the world for safely storing and transporting vaccines, medicines, blood, and other samples.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, B Medical Systems has been actively supporting governments worldwide in the formation of their vaccine responses, by supporting the establishment of a reliable and versatile vaccine cold chain able to meet any storage temperature requirement.
B Medical Systems is also one of the first few companies in the world to receive the EU MDR certification for its active refrigeration product lines across the medical refrigeration and blood management business lines. B Medical Systems is also one of the few companies in the world to have an end-to-end refrigeration solution certified by EU MDR, US FDA and WHO PQS.
Vaccine Cold Chain
B Medical Systems, a global leader with over 40 years in the vaccine cold chain sector, provides various products to maintain vaccine safety from storage to final delivery. Their portfolio includes Solar Direct Drive (SDD) Refrigerators and Ice-Pack Freezers, Ice-Lined Refrigerators and Freezers (ILRs), and Transport Boxes. Specially designed for locations with inconsistent electricity, the Solar Direct Drive devices rely solely on solar energy. They can maintain a stable 2°C to 8°C temperature, ensuring vaccines' integrity. Their Ice-Lined Refrigerators, which can be connected to power outlets, can also cater to areas with unstable electricity due some models equipped with integrated voltage stabilizers. Vaccine Transport Boxes, robust and corrosion-resistant, ensure vaccines are safely delivered globally, while the company's Remote Temperature Monitoring Device (RTMD) provides real-time alerts and data on temperature deviations, enhancing monitoring efficiency.
The company’s Laboratory and Pharmacy Refrigerators ensure medicines and samples remain safe at temperatures between 4°C and 15°C, while its Laboratory Freezers maintain the integrity of samples between -20°C and -41°C. Moreover, B Medical Systems offers versatile Ultra-Low Freezers that can reach a wide range of temperatures, from -86°C to -20°C. Furthermore, the company also offers Medical Transport Boxes for varied transport requirements, and their real-time monitoring solution, °B Connected, to monitor medical storage equipment.
Blood Management Solutions
Blood and its components degrade if improperly stored. Recognizing this, B Medical Systems offers storage and transport solutions for blood products. Their Blood Bank Refrigerators are globally recognized for offering reliable temperatures between 2°C and 6°C. Plasma Freezers, with sustainable operational efficiency, cater to hospitals, blood banks, and laboratories, while Ultra-Low Freezers provide long-term storage for the most temperature-sensitive blood components. Additionally, their Blood Transport Boxes ensure the safe transport of blood products through any transportation mode. Finally, the company also offers Contact Shock Freezers which provide rapid freezing of plasma, ensuring that precious proteins such as Factor VIII are properly preserved.
