The camels lined up in the desert. Arktek sitting on the humps looms over the sand dunes. Known as the "bucket of life", Arktek is an unplugged vaccine storage tank that can be stably stored for more than a month in an environment of 2 to 8 degrees Celsius with one ice rack, making it ideal for any environment with unstable electricity supply and extremely inconvenient transportation.

Arktek is a product of the Global Good founded by Bill Gates. For Aucma Group, a Chinese company, taking the production orders for Arktek could turn its superb refrigeration technology into products that could be used in the world's most needed areas to benefit humanity.
