New Electronic Temperature Breach Indicators

New Electronic Temperature Breach Indicators

Timestrip ® – the innovative developer of ‘smart indicator’ technology – has launched a completely new category of product: Electronic Temperature Indicators

eTimestrip

The small, robust electronic Temperature Indicate and Report (TIR) devices. They provide a simple and reliable way to detect temperature breaches during product storage and transportation.

The compact electronic temperature breach indicators are affixed to product packages. eTimestrip clearly shows the temperature conditions during the entire supply chain, including the ‘last mile’.

Traffic light LEDs on the device show status information. Users can download the free smartphone app to retrieve data wirelessly.

A more detailed report can be generated and stored. This shows the date, time and extent of any temperature breaches that may have occurred.

By providing an auditable timed record of breaches, the electronic indicators open up a wide range of applications. They can monitor cost effectively throughout the supply chain.

eTimestrip will be used in pharmaceutical, healthcare, bulk food and other high value applications with temperature sensitive products.

eTimestrip indicators fit between traditional chemical indicators and expensive data loggers. The electronic temperature indicators provide a cost effective solution without complex software or special training to use.

The electronic temperature indicators

At launch, two products are available with a a measuring range of -30 °C to 70 °C:

eTimestrip TIR 2-8°C is designed principally for pharmaceuticals shipments.

eTimestrip TIR No Freeze 0°C is intended for use on products sensitive to freezing temperatures.

The addition of eTimestrip to our existing portfolio of temperature and time monitoring technology is part of our vision for Timestrip as a progressive, innovate business.

Our clients in a wide range of sectors look to Timestrip products to give peace of mind throughout the transportation and storage lifecycle of their goods.

Nora Murphy, Commercial Director of Timestrip

The new eTimestrip electronic temperature breach indicators are now available, and complement the company’s core product offering of stock, bespoke and custom branded indicators.

In December, Timestrip was identified in the ‘Top 10 Emerging Technologies of 2019’ by Scientific American magazine. The report analysed the technology trends that are ‘poised to rattle the status quo’, with the potential for sensors to vastly improve the safety and quality of food.

Food Temp™ Helps Comply with the 2 Hour – 4 Hour Rule for HACCP Plans

Timestrip® has a new range of Food Temp™ indicators which have been specifically developed for food shipping and storage.

The newly designed temperature breach window on the Food Temp™ 5°C indicates breaches lasting between two to four hours.

Why 2 Hour – 4 Hours?

 2 Hour - 4 Hour Rule for HACCP Plans Explained

In the food industry, food with the potential to grow hazardous pathogens are kept safe from developing harmful levels of bacteria using a HACCP Plan with a 2 Hour – 4 Hour Rule.

If the food is exposed to a temperature breach for less than 2 hours, bacteria have not been developing quickly and can be returned to the safe temperature.

Users can see that the breach window on the Food Temp™ indicator has remained white and can return products to the safe temperature.

If exposed to breach temperatures above 2 Hours, but under 4 Hours- bacteria levels have begun to rapidly multiply but have not reached dangerously high levels.

When users see blue in the breach window, it will alert them they must use the food immediately and cannot be returned to storage.

After a 4 hour exposure to a temperature breach, bacteria have had the time to multiply to unsafe levels and cannot be consumed.

A completely blue window on a Food Temp™ indicator lets a user know that the food product is unsafe to use and must be immediately discarded.

For more information, see our Food Temp Indicator page.
