Integrity of the cold chain
Timestrip® indicators are calibrated to the lifetime characteristics of the product (from a few hours to over 12 months at room temperature, refrigerated or frozen) and to the degree of temperature sensitivity of the product.
This means they can be relied upon accurately to preserve the integrity of the cold chain and their potential for accuracy is increased thanks to their low cost, which makes them suitable for use at individual case or product level.
Timestrip can also incorporate anti-counterfeiting measures into products, to guarantee product origin and authenticity.
Items such as blood and blood products have a short shelf life once removed from refrigerated storage.
Timestrip Plus™ prompts awareness of proper storage and, particularly in a busy theatre or hospital ward, avoids uncertainty which can lead to unnecessary wastage of a valuable product.
Invaluable visual aids for doctors, patients and healthcare workers, increasing compliance and avoiding unnecessary waste.
