Timestrip® Irreversible Food Temperature Indicators

These smart and superior irreversible time & temperature indicators are calibrated specifically for food safety. They provide a high tech and low-cost temperature monitoring solution for seafood, as well as general food storage and transportation and alert to any time or temp breaches.

These specific ‘food range’ time & temperature indicators, cover a temperature range from 3° to 10° and continue to be purchased and relied on globally, due to their compatibility with worldwide food safety regulations and ease of use in the cold chain.

Timestrip® temperature monitoring smart labels make tracking temperature breaches across a multitude of cold chain food industry applications a simple, cost-effective process.

In fact, we offer the most cost-effective solution of our type in food standard and food safety monitoring, which is why our technology has already been adopted by many innovative businesses. Our precise, efficient, user-friendly temperature indicator smart-labels are helping to ensure effective cold chain management around the world.

Timestrip® Irreversible Blood Temperature Indicators

Our blood temp range irreversible temperature indicators are used to monitor temperature of whole blood, RBCs and plasma, stored in a blood bank, hospital refrigerator or temporary storage during transport.

The 6°C and the 10°C range will alert to any breaches of blood/plasma in transit. With the push of a button, Blood Temp 6°C and 10°C are activated and indicate simply and clearly if the core temperature of the blood has risen above the threshold temperature.

Unlike some other blood bag temperature indicators, Timestrip® Blood Temp 10°C and 6°C indicators can be stored at ambient temperatures and activated only when needed, contain no batteries and need no maintenance.

The Timestrip® Blood Temp range will help improve compliance and promote accountability during storage and transport. Removing the ambiguity of temperature abuse and knowing when blood stock can be returned and used safely, will also save time and money.

Timestrip® PLUS Temperature Indicators

Timestrip® PLUS™ are irreversible threshold indicators. They cover a range of temperatures that alert you to temperature breaches but also, crucially in some situations, they display the duration of the breach.

Once activated, Timestrip® PLUS™ will keep monitoring temperature for days, weeks or months, depending on your needs.

Effective for use across various industries such as life sciences, pharma and food, they monitor ascending temperature breaches but can be customised to both ascending and descending. Use cases vary and include cold chain monitoring, frozen food, pharma shipments and room temperature monitoring. Unique serial codes are printed on each Timestrip® PLUS™ indicator for traceability.

Timestrip® PLUS Duo Temperature Indicator

Timestrip® PLUS Duo puts two temperature threshold indicators side by side into one handy irreversible smart label format.

The indicator on the left shows if temperatures have breached the cold chain threshold of 10°C/50°F and for how long, with time markers for 3, 8 or 14 days. The indicator on the right shows if temperatures have breached an extreme of 34°C/93°F and for how long, with one-time marker for 3 hours.

Duo has been engineered to comply with World Health Organisation recommended monitoring requirements for certain vaccines. That is why it combines a threshold indicator of 10°C/50°F with 3, 8, and 14-day time markers and a 34°C/93°F indicator showing 3 hours of breach.

However, there is nothing to prevent Duo being used to monitor other products if these time markers and threshold temperatures are suitable. It is also possible to manufacture Dual threshold indicators for other temperature thresholds.

The Timestrip® PLUS Duo provides clear, irreversible visual evidence and distinct time marking of the thermal abuse phase. By removing the ambiguity of temperature abuse across time and temperature thresholds this all-in-one indicator can help prevent the unnecessary wastage of expensive medicines and vaccines.

Timestrip® Complete Temperature Card

Timestrip® Complete is a cold chain product that actively monitors high and low threshold temperature breaches.

Combining the Timestrip® PLUS™ ascending temperature monitoring indicator with the FCP™ descending temperature indicator technology, Timestrip® Complete gives you true 2-8°C temperature monitoring.

Use Timestrip® Complete to help monitor temperature-sensitive shipments including vaccines, drugs, blood products, implants, diagnostic substances, ophthalmic solutions, intraocular lenses food, and chemicals.

Upon receipt, end users will have an immediate, visual pass or fail confirmation of exposure to temperature excursions, indicating if efficacy and safety have been compromised.

We have effectively removed the need for cold chain managers to source different products from different suppliers, saving both time and money.

Supplied on a convenient card, the single use, irreversible indicators provide auditable proof that a temperature breach has occurred.

Timestrip® Time Indicators

Time indicators are irreversible single use disposable timers in a convenient adhesive smart label format; they can be attached directly onto a product or device and provide a visual reminder to replace a part, monitor an expiry date or check medical/diagnostic results.

Longer-term time indicators are used as medical, industrial filtration or product consumables replacement reminders, or as monthly-annual service requirements/appointment reminders. They are also available in plastic keychain format for 3 and 12 months.

The use cases vary, for example in healthcare, an easy-to-read Timestrip® can prompt nurses or patients themselves when repeat doses or dressing or cannula changes are due. This is particularly useful in helping hospital staff to comply with infection control procedures.

By putting a Timestrip® Time indicator on a product or device, the end user has a constant visual reminder every time they use it. This encourages closer adherence to recommended or regulated replacement or servicing cycles, which will lead to a noticeable improvement in product or appliance performance. Optimal product or appliance performance will lead to improved satisfaction and brand loyalty and increased sales for suppliers.
