Clear indication for simple use

Timestrip Descending indicators quickly provide a clear visual alert when products have been exposed to temperatures that have fallen below the trigger event.

Ease of use

Timestrip Descending temperature indicators are small, efficient, self activating and easy to use.

When the indicator has been kept above the threshold temperature, the indication window remains green.


The Timestrip Descending temperature indicator clearly shows when products have been exposed to cooler temperatures.

When the temperature drops below the threshold an irreversible, chemical color change happens. The indication window turns from green to red quickly and precisely at a specific set point.

For use in cold chain

FCP™ alerts everyone in your cold chain, and in Controlled Room Temperature zones, that a product has been exposed to cooler temperatures that may compromise quality.

These indicators can be deployed in a wide range of industries from food, industrial, medical, manufacturing and pharmaceutical. Timestrip Descending indicators can be used in medical devices and the life sciences.

When you need to verify a product has not gone above or below a threshold temperature range, we offer Timestrip® COMPLETE.

It contains both an ascending temperature indicator and a descending temperature indicator in one small card.
