The Mean Kinetic Temperature (MKT) is a parameter that allows you to evaluate the effects of temperature changes on the vaccine or drug quality. In case of temporary exceeding of storage temperature limits, it can be determinant of the usefulness of the drug. Mean Kinetic Temperature is important both in the preparation of facilities for storage and distribution, as well as during their operation.
