    This could go down in history as a game changer like the invention of aspirin or paracetamol. If it works as advertised it would mean you will never have to refrigerate vaccines again and it's not the only technology close to working either.

    Not having to use refrigeration would change the health care industry so much. Reducing cost of electricity to run all the refrigerators, reducing the cost of buying and maintaining the fridges too. These cost savings will allow more money to be spent on other areas of health care or make hospitals viable in poor areas where it's not possible at the moment.

    Really could be a global game changer. Lets hope it's cost effective and easy to roll out quickly.
