Sustainable cold chain for HALI research activities in Tanzania

-Zikankuba Sijali, Sokoine University of Agriculture

The HALI Project is ensuring regular maintenance of the liquid  nitrogen (LN) plant for sustainable liquid nitrogen production. Liquid nitrogen is an essential and a best cold chain supply in our environment when planning for sample collection for viral detection. Despite being used frequently through intensifying surveillance activities, the LN plant is still stable and operating in a good condition since 2012 when it was installed.
