This is part two of the Cold Chain Summit series. In part one we discussed what the cold chain is and why it is important. We continue by highlighting additional topics we have learned from the discussions and feel are important to share.
Keeping a product’s temperature within the stated guidelines is a primary requirement throughout the cold chain. Pharmaceuticals and food are the most prominent industries with temperature-sensitive products. Manufacturers and logistics companies need to perform Stability Tests to determine how well a product retains it quality over the life span of the product. Shipping protocols need to include temperature profiles to determine seasonal temperature variation based on four parameters – mild, extreme, hot and cold. Risks need to be identified throughout the cold chain whether by human error or during the multiple hand-offs of the product from manufacturing through delivery.
Documenting the temperatures for the temperature profiles during any one phase of the cold chain is easy with our Report Logger. At $49 it is very cost effective and they come in various logging durations from 1 to 90 days and they also cover three different temperature ranges. All these factors make the Report Loggers a great choice for simplifying your cold chain monitoring.
