Versatile for the Healthcare Sector
Aug 25 2006
Tinytag are compact and battery-powered data loggers with a large memory, making them ideal for consignments that have to endure long distance travel. There are many types of loggers including compact, easily transportable versions with a flashing alarm that indicates that the consignment has been exposed to temperatures outside the safe range and that direct action may be required. Using the Tinytag Explorer Software, both temperature and humidity can be constantly monitored through the journey and downloaded as graphics and tables when required, enabling mobile monitoring. The Tinytag range handles a wide range of temperatures and is therefore suitable for freezer room temperatures and the most sensitive consignments such as vaccines, blood products and body organs.
Patrick Gray of Healthcare Logistics Limited, a transportation company for pharmaceutical products, already uses Tinytag in monitoring the cold chain. He explains the benefits of the data loggers to their business, "We need to monitor the transportation temperatures of chilled and ambient vehicles to ensure the pharmaceuticals are kept within the required temperature tolerances. We also use them to validate cold stores and chilled vehicles. The loggers are robust as we use a lot of heavy machinery and pallets. They are small so they cause minimal disruption to the consignments, and their technology is such that when we download the final data from them and a problem is identified, we can pinpoint the exact time and date that the temperature fluctuated or dropped and track that back to where the vehicle was in the journey. They are also extremely useful in validating the conditions in which the pharmaceuticals were transported, which is essential when these drugs can potentially mean the difference between life and death."
