With these features, the HD65 MedTRX refrigerated van complies with World Health Organization or WHO, United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or US CDC, and United States Food and Drug Administration or US FDA guidelines, and WHO recommended vaccine storage temperature range of +10 degrees Celsius to negative 25 degrees Celsius.
