Tinytag Data Loggers: Environmental Monitoring for Goods in Storage and Transit IMHX Stand UK10, UKWA Pavilion

Tinytag data loggers are used worldwide to accurately monitor goods in storage and transit, helping to ensure that environmental conditions can be measured, recorded, analysed and validated. Temperature and humidity loggers monitor both product core and surrounding air temperature if required. Shock and vibration loggers help identify if and when product damage occurred during handling. Recorded data is downloaded to a PC via a USB cable and viewed with easy to use Tinytag Explorer software.

Radio loggerManufactured in the UK, these robust, compact battery-powered units help verify correct conditions for temperature sensitive goods such as pharmaceuticals, chilled and frozen food; they help maintain specified health and safety, and quality standards including HACCP regulations; and are ideal for recording conditions throughout the cold chain.

Montage pic from websiteThe Tinytag Radio Data Logging System is an ideal solution for monitoring in large or remote premises, or in smaller sites with a high number of monitoring points. It uses wireless communications to send live information for immediate viewing on a PC. Radio loggers are also used in refrigerated vehicles to record temperature data, which is then automatically offloaded for analysis upon return to the depot.

Leading medical equipment and pharmaceutical manufacturer STD Pharmaceutical Products Ltd is using the Tinytag Radio System to ensure that its sensitive products are stored in the correct conditions. Some of the company’s products require storage conditions below 25°C, and the temperature has to be constantly monitored to ensure the product remains compliant. Six radio data loggers, some incorporating two probes, are located in the main warehouse at different height levels; there is a clear difference of 2°C between the differing levels. A logger is also located in the cold store to identify any temperature deviation within that area, and there is also one in the server room to help protect the IT systems from overheating.

The data is analysed on a monthly basis unless an alarm is automatically generated by the logging system. If this occurs, steps have to be taken immediately to investigate if any product could be at risk. An annual report is produced in line with current MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) guidelines for the company’s Wholesaler Dealers Licence.

Louise Payne of STD Pharmaceuticals commented, “We are very satisfied with the results of the loggers.  Tinytag radio loggers use real time, and are also able to log historic data: if there is an issue an automated alarm can be sent direct to our e-mail, mobile device or telephone, and the software is simple and effective to use.”

STD Pharmaceutical Products was formed in 1967 to supply a novel sclerosant (injectable medicine) to surgeons for the non-surgical treatment of varicose veins, and also promotes a range of antiperspirants and treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
