The corona pandemic poses great challenges to people around the world. Health systems and medical facilities are being subjected to an unprecedented test of endurance. The novel corona virus SARS-CoV-2 has put the entire world in a state of emergency.

Research into effective medicines and vaccines against the coronavirus is now a top priority. As a manufacturer of high-precision temperature control technology, we consider it our responsibility to support research in the fight against the coronavirus.

“We are part of Germany's critical infrastructure with our product portfolio for research and pharmaceutical production. Many of our clients are working intensively on the development of new drugs, test procedures and vaccines against the coronavirus. Our temperature control units make an important contribution in the research laboratories and production facilities of chemistry, pharmaceutical and medical technology” says Daniel Huber, CEO of Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau AG.

Temperature control technology from Huber is used, for example, to manufacture chemicals for coronavirus tests. In addition, reaction vessels are tempered in which the first vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 may soon be produced. Huber temperature control technology is also used in the production of medical devices and protective equipment, e.g. for material and functional tests and for quality assurance. In the field of laboratory diagnostics, Huber products take over the cooling of analysis devices and ensure precise temperatures in the cultivation of cultures as well as in the preparation and storage of laboratory samples.

In order to support science and research in the best way in the fight against the corona pandemic, Huber is currently giving top priority to inquiries and orders in this area. At the same time, coordinated safety and organisational measures ensure that the company itself is not affected by the virus. The focus is on protecting employees and maintaining production. Accordingly, numerous measures to protect the workforce have been established, such as the introduction of additional hygiene measures and rules of conduct, the cessation of travel activities and the spatial distancing of employees.

“We want to help contain the pandemic with our temperature control solutions as quickly as possible. In the fight against the coronavirus, time is one of the decisive factors. That is why we are available for short-term device deliveries and support services wherever our products are needed for research or production tasks against the coronavirus. I am convinced that if we act quickly and responsibly, we will be able to overcome this extraordinary situation together” states Daniel Huber.
