Is temperature monitoring required?
Yes, it is!
For multiple good reasons!
Reason number one is to ensure product integrity, to safeguard the quality and the functionality of the products.
Patient, consumer and system safety are also on the top of the list.
Norms (ISO 13485…) and legal requirements also demand temperature registration.
For multiple applications!
Temperature registration is essential in diverse industries.
In the food industry (storage, processing, and distribution), it helps to ensure safety and prevents revenue loss due to damaged goods.
In the healthcare sector (pharmaceuticals, blood banks, vaccines, diagnostic kits) a strong regulatory framework requires full traceability for the benefit of the patient.
Manufacturers and traders of thermosensitive products (flowers, chemicals, paintings…) also monitor the temperatures to ensure that customers are satisfied with their purchases.
Last but not least, infrastructure (server rooms, ATM machines…) also requires temperature follow-up to avoid equipment to overheat.
Isn’t a thermometer enough?
No, it is not!
For multiple good reasons!
The classic thermometer has two significant shortcomings. Firstly, the actual temperature is only known when a person is visually reading the device.
Secondly, no records are made automatically. It requires an operator to write down the temperature measurements in a table. Usually, this is only done every 4 to 24 hours.
In practice, this means that significant temperature deviations can go unnoticed if they occur between the manual readings.
This is an undesirable situation!
The efforts to manually measure and control the situation don’t pay off! An open fridge door can go undetected and unreported for hours.
Therefore the next best thing to do is to use a maximum-minimum thermometer. This thermometer will display the current temperature and the lower and higher temperature extremes to which it was exposed since the last reset.
The shortcoming of this type of thermometer is that the exposure time to these extreme temperatures is unknown.
Due to the principle of precaution, the operator will have to assume that the temperature deviation was as long as the gap between each record on the registration table. In practice, this means that the goods will be discarded more often than necessary, therefore creating huge and sometimes unnecessary expenses.
However, these costs can be avoided by our solutions. Our temperature logger (CC-L01) will provide detailed information on the measured temperatures minute by minute. We are therefore providing detailed information on the duration, magnitude, and timing of each deviation so that a correct decision can be made. Our Base Station (CC-S01) will provide notifications so that you can remediate the situation and save your products.
Our competitive pricing signifies that for our customers the return on investment (ROI) is immediate.
