The invention of Isobars is to save millions of people around the world by keeping the vaccine in ideal temperature especially in developing countries. It was invented by a British student, named Will Broadway for the social cause by helping the people who are in utmost need of this, without aiming to make money out of it. That is why he won’t be trying to get the patents. Claiming this, he said ” I make things every day for people who have everything. I wanted to make something for people who have next to nothing. It should be a basic human right, in my opinion, to have a vaccination. I don’t think that it should be patented to restrict use.”
How an Isobar Works:
The term “isobars” (originally “isobares”) for nuclides was suggested by Alfred Walter Stewart in 1918. It is derived from the Greek word isos, meaning “equal” and baros, meaning “weight”. The device maintains a steady two to eight degrees for 30 days. It works by heating ammonia and water to create ammonia vapors, which are then released into its main chamber when cooling is needed. Isobars are atoms of different chemical elements that have the same number of nucleons. Correspondingly, isobars differ in atomic number (or the number of protons) but have the same mass number. An example of a series of isobars would be 40S, 40Cl, 40Ar, 4K, and 40Ca. The nuclei of these nuclides all contain 40 nucleons; however, they contain varying numbers of protons and neutrons.
Will’s Journey to Isobars:
Will was inspired to work on the portable refrigeration unit in 2012 when he visited Cambodia and some parts of south-east Asia. These trips brought an interest in this field which went on in the invention of isobars to solve some major issues. He worked as a medical consultant and had an experience how a firm works. He says “Medical products have such a big markup that it’s unreasonable for people around the world to purchase these items. If it is the best thing available, then it should be out there saving lives. It’s risky but-but there is potential for commercial cooling. It would be a great thing to take on a five-day trip where you have no power “.
Finally, he insisted that vaccine delivery is the primary function of his invention.
