Temperature Controlled Warehouse Opening in Chicago Renews Focus on Monitoring Pharmaceuticals

departures_lounge DHL Global Forwarding opened it’s purpose built temperature controlled warehouse to process pharmaceutical, biotech and medical devices in Chicago’s O’Hare airport.

With 10,000 temperature controlled square feet situated in the world’s busiest airport, businesses now have better ways to get their temperature controlled healthcare products all over the globe.

Whether your products are being flown internationally, or shipped overground locally, you need to be sure temperature breaches have not occurred in transit.

Timestrip® has a line of temperature breach indicators that are small, easy-to-use, cost effective indicators that and provide auditable proof that your devices arrived safe to use.

The Timestrip® PLUS Duo line is created with vaccines in mind, as they indicate two ascending temperature breaches, both the higher and lower thresholds.

Our Timestrip® Blood Temp 10 indicator is a single use ascending temperature breach indicator that can be applied directly to a blood bag, and will visually alert you to a 10°C breach of the blood bag’s core temperature.

For all other temperature monitoring needs, our Timestrip® PLUS line monitors ascending temperature breaches in a variety of temperatures between -20°C and 30°C.

Timestrip Blood Temp 10 is an irreversible, single-use 10ºC temperature breach indicator. It can be stored and shipped at room temperature when inert and is activated with simple finger pressure.

Once activated a confirmation window tells you the product is ready to monitor by filling with colour. It is then immediately adhered on the lower third of a pre-chilled blood bag.

Blood Temp 10 is ideal for the transportation of blood bags. When the core temperature of the blood breaches 10ºC, the indication window turns blue, showing you the blood is no longer suitable to return to storage.

Belgian Red Cross Flanders in development agreement with Timestrip

Belgian Red Cross Flanders enters joint development agreement with Timestrip.

London/UK – September 17th 2014, Timestrip UK Ltd has announced it is working with Belgian Red Cross-Flanders to develop a new  blood temperature monitoring label.  

Timestrip today confirmed that such product development will look to create optimal temperature monitoring labels for the blood collection, distribution and transfusion organisations operating within the Flanders catchment area.

Temperature mBelgian Red Cross-Flanders logoonitoring labels based on the existing Timestrip Blood Temp 10 product will be developed and reviewed in consultation with Belgian Red Cross-Flanders.

Belgian Red Cross-Flanders conducted lengthy investigations into different current temperature monitoring solutions for blood bags taken from sophisticated refrigeration units, leaving the blood banks for transfusion in theatre or if required at a secondary location.  Clear and accurate monitoring of the core temperature of individual blood bags is required to identify ascending temperature breaches and prevent blood stocks being returned into the cold chain if unused after specified times or adversely affected by temperature.

 

The aim of this joint development initiative is to help define and pilot a range of smart labels that monitor critical temperature excursions.

The program agreement was signed by Philippe Vandekerckhove, Director General of Belgian Red Cross-Flanders, Reuben Isbitsky of Timestrip UK Ltd and Chris Van Sebroeck of Innolabel, Timestrip’s distribution partner in Belgium.

Commenting on the project, Timestrip Founder Reuben Isbitsky said “This is a milestone moment for Timestrip and we are delighted that Belgian Red Cross-Flanders has chosen to use our technology to help create optimized labels for these critical monitoring requirements.  We believe that new products created as a result of this cooperation will possibly change standard operating procedures on a global scale.. ”
