Timestrip temperature and time indicators play an important part in ensuring quality of supply for sensitive pharmaceutical products. They are economical and easy to use, making for effective monitoring throughout the entire cold supply chain - all the way from pharma manufacturing to patient use. Reliable liquid-based indicators are a simple approach to monitoring, and take the form of self-adhesive labels offering an intuitive visual check for healthcare workers.
Relatively low cost, they can be placed directly on the product or package to be monitored, if necessary, starting at manufacturing or collection, and staying attached all the way to the end user. The self-adhesive smart labels can be initiated, read and understood by every level of employee that encounters them.
Timestrip time indicators are reliable visual reminders of replacement, service and maintenance schedules, as well as protecting products with defined shelf life. Temperature indicators detect conditions where there is a breach of the expected temperature range.
One of the challenges in developing an effective smart indicator is monitoring both the time for which a product has been stored, and also the temperatures it has experienced over that time - a complex envelope of these two parameters. Time/temperature integrators (TTIs) reflect the accumulated conditions during transport and storage, and give a clear non-reversible visual indication when acceptable conditions have been breached.
Numerous pharma applications can be addressed using electronic indicators. These small, robust battery-operated indicators provide a reliable way to detect temperature breaches, and can replace the need for complex data loggers.
The TC489 is an intelligent device that monitors temperature data every minute with high accuracy. The key alert temperatures can be selected as standard e.g., 2-8C, or can be specified as bespoke across a wide temperature range: as low as -30C or as high as 60C.
The latest eTimestrip Micro Data Logger TL520 is a compact and economical micro data logger that is capable of providing an immediate irreversible indication of over- and under-temperature conditions using built-in LED lamps. However, it also has another trick up its sleeve: it can relay the stored temperature data wirelessly to an accompanying app (iOS or Android) for analysis and filing using built-in NFC technology. This makes the TL520 a smaller, simpler, more cost-effective alternative to conventional data loggers, which usually require returning to base, and operators need training in their use and interpretation.
Timestrip’s large stock range is ideal for monitoring both time and temperature in the storage and transport of pharmaceuticals and related chemical products.
