Experience Berlinger SmartSystem

The newest innovation SmartSystem guarantees end-to-end condition monitoring and compliance with its modular platform approach. The platform combines hardware and software augmented by add-on services to reduce site and shipment monitoring costs and maximize data transparency.

SmartSystem enables full supply chain visibility and management of investigational medicinal products, pharma, and life sciences goods. The modular device platform SmartMonitor in combination with Berlinger’s cloud solution SmartView offers maximum control and flexibility for your pharmaceutical cold chain. Modular real-time combines real-time and non-real-time monitoring technology in one solution, increasing automation and reducing costs.

Sustainability in product development

Cold Chain monitoring is part of the pharmaceutical supply chain that generates resource wastage. A recent study by the renowned sustainability advisor South Pole on behalf of Berlinger has shown that device transport, packaging and disposal play a minor role on CO2 emissions (12 percent) associated with cold chain monitoring. However, the raw materials required for device production take up to 85 percent of emitted carbon dioxide. Berlinger takes its responsibility for sustainability in the pharmaceutical supply chain seriously and reducing the environmental footprint in production development is crucial to them.

Temperature monitoring of pharmaceuticals

Continuous monitoring of the cold chain is essential to ensure flawless quality of medicines, vaccines and other active ingredients. The provisions governing this are contained in the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and GDP (Good Distribution Practice) regulations. With its headquarters in Switzerland, Berlinger has its finger on the pulse of developments and is fully aware of the dangers and risks that can arise within the cold chain.

Trust in Proven Products

Quality is always their top priority and is lived every day at Berlinger. All products need to pass a final quality inspection at the Berlinger headquarters in Switzerland.

Continuous quality control

At Berlinger, they all share equal responsibility for the quality of their products and services. They are also fully committed to total compliance with customer and industry requirements. The high quality of their products is guaranteed via ongoing improvements in the effectiveness of their quality management system, which is efficiently embedded into their core processes in accordance with a lean philosophy. For this purpose, they also continuously review, develop and optimize all their activities.

Strict guidelines and standards

As a provider of "sensitive components," their hardware and software products must meet strict standards during development, production and testing. Validation processes must be followed and quality controls implemented at all levels.

Knowledge Transfer
