The NSF/ANSI 456 testing protocols call for the use of specifically designed aluminum thermal ballasts referred to as a Vaccine Simulation Device (VSD). A VSD simulates a small vial of vaccine that was taken out of its original packaging and placed at an extreme position within the unit to simulate worst case storage practices. The standard also requires a Data Acquisition (DAQ) rate 30 to 90 times faster than typical data loggers used in clinics.
