Company Summary

2.1 million people die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases. 23% of the total vaccine cost is maintaining the vaccines between 2-8 degrees Celsius, also known as the cold chain. Nanoly’s technology eliminates the need for vaccine refrigeration so that vaccines may be more accessible and affordable. Pharmaceutical companies, vaccine manufacturers, and health organizations may significantly decrease their vaccine costs by using Nanoly.
