This product helps government bodies and pharmaceutical manufacturers monitor the use of vaccines in developing countries. The system uses machine learning to identify geolocation, other details related to the recipient, and information on the medical provider. A thermochromic material layer in the syringe also helps determine if an individual product is likely to fail in cold-chain. The adhesive layer on the label lets it double as a bandage after injection. The SureShot mobile app allows consumers to scan the vaccine syringe before injection to quickly acquire relevant information.
