Nexleaf Analytics is proud to announce a grant from Google to fund the next phase of our ColdTrace device and the expansion of our ColdTrace-related projects. ColdTrace is a low-cost, easy-to-use remote temperature monitoring (RTM) system for use in vaccine refrigerators at multiple levels of the cold chain. A ColdTrace sensor sends SMS alerts to health workers when vaccine refrigerators become too hot or too cold in the field, reducing vaccine spoilage.
Los Angeles, CA – Nexleaf Analytics announced today that it will receive Phase II funding through Grand Challenges Explorations, an initiative created by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that enables individuals worldwide to test bold ideas to address persistent health and development challenges. Nithya Ramanathan will continue to pursue an innovative global health research project, titled ColdTrace: A Low Cost System for Remote Temperature Monitoring of the Vaccine Coldchain.
