Myriad of applications for Timestrip time and temperature indicator labels

We often get asked what exactly our Timestrip products do and tend to say:

“Timestrip adhesive labels show if there’s been a temperature breach and how long the breach has lasted.”

However, you probably haven’t imagined all the possibilities of our versatile technology. Here’s a quick rundown of the most common applications for our products:


Our time indicators are used for many different applications, especially as an alert tool for consumers.

  • We utilize the Timestrip® Plus indicator to ensure that our goods arrive at the end-user in good condition and that the cold chain has not been broken for any significant time period. When we get calls from customers letting us know that the Timestrip® has been activated, we replace the reagents immediately. The benefit is, that this is a service only Siemens gives to their customers in South Africa and that we are sure our products are arriving without having been exposed to high temperatures, which may compromise results in certain circumstances.

  • Our Rapid Refresh™ brand is all about simplifying the job of the healthcare worker by making it fast and easy to refresh a curtain. We are excited to offer a revolutionary product that makes managing curtain changes easy for increased compliance and a safer environment.

  • We are shipping thousands of individual consignments every year and with a Timestrip® Plus TTI in every box we know that our oysters had a safe trip!
