Deltatrak® Introduces New Cold Chain Temperature Monitoring Card for Vaccines
Press release date: November 5, 2012
Vaccine Card Combines DeltaTRAK and Barcode Time and Temperature Indicator Labels to Monitor and Trace Product Temperatures Through the Entire Cold Chain
PLEASANTON, Calif. - DeltaTRAK®, a leading innovator of cold chain, environmental monitoring and food safety management solutions, today announced the introduction of its new Cold Chain Vaccine Monitoring Card. The card features irreversible labels designed to provide monitoring and tracking of temperatures as vaccines travel throughout the cold chain. The card features DeltaTRAK's chemical TempDot Minus labels designed to monitor descending temperatures with the company’s ThermoTrace Time and Temperature Indicators (TTI) labels designed to track temperature excursion events.
"Increased temperature visibility of vaccines allows customers to more effectively monitor product efficacy and comply with ePedigree guidelines," said Frederick Wu, president and CEO of DeltaTRAK. "Our labels provide an immediate pass or fail confirmation if a product has been exposed to abusive temperatures and our barcode labels track up to three levels of cumulative temperature abuse. Together they provide a useful tool for assessing if vaccines are received in manufacturer-recommended condition.”
TempDot Minus Labels provide an irreversible easy to read indication of exposure to abusive temperatures. Activated by a simple button push, the labels monitor descending temperature breaches. The labels provide a visual indicator when products have been exposed to temperatures below a defined threshold.
The TTI label is a single-use barcode label that tracks up to three levels of cumulative temperature abuse above its threshold temperature. This process is captured in real time with every scan taken using an industrial barcode reader or consumer based smartphone (iPhone, Android or Windows CE) and this information is collected into a cloud-based database for analysis and documentation.
DeltaTRAK will be showcasing its new temperature monitoring card at the Parenteral Drug Association Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Conference (Booth 4) in Bethesda, Maryland November 15-16th, 2012.
