7 Types of Temperature Monitoring Devices (Zebra & TempTime)

Temperature intelligence throughout the supply chain. 

Barcodes + Temperature Sensors = Success!

Dealing with vaccines, food, and biologics often requires tight control of environmental parameters (temperature, light levels, etc.) for compliance and safety. 

That’s why for all phases (storage, shipping, handling, and use), you need to be confident of the integrity of the product. You need insights, and a cost effective solution. 

What began as a technology to transport refrigerated polio vaccines and evolved into a system for pharmacies and distributors to monitor all sorts of medications now helps manufacturers monitor cumulative heat, threshold heat, or freeze exposures on site, or in transit.
