Inert until activated and self-adhesive, it can be stored at room-temperature then applied to a product or package when needed. It is single use and indication is irreversible. It is splash-proof and there is an expiry date on each pack shipped.

Timestrip® PLUS Time & Temperature Range

Timestrip® PLUS are irreversible temperature threshold indicators; they cover a range of temperatures from -20°C (-4°F) to 38°(100°F) that alert you to temperature breaches but also, crucially in some situations, they display the duration of the breach. 

Once activated, Timestrip® PLUS will keep monitoring temperature for days, weeks or months, depending on your needs. Effective for use across various industries such as life sciences, pharma and food, they monitor ascending temperature breaches but can be customised to both ascending and descending. 

Use cases vary and include cold chain monitoring, frozen food, pharma shipments and room temperature monitoring. Unique serial codes are printed on each Timestrip® PLUS indicator for traceability.

Timestrip® Plus Duo

Double action temperature monitoring in one, cost-effective device.

A cumulative breach indicator with readings for excursions above 10°C – in day ranges from 3 to 14, with a secondary indicator to show immediate excursions above an upper temperature breach point of 34°C.

Calibrated to follow WHO recommendations vaccines & medicine.  The Timestrip® PLUS Duo provides clear, irreversible visual evidence and distinct time marking of the thermal abuse phase.

In- depth information with push-button simplicity. By removing the ambiguity of temperature abuse across time and temperature thresholds this all-in-one indicator can help prevent the unnecessary wastage of expensive medicines and vaccines..

Duo’s technical specifications follow World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations for monitoring vaccine temperature and reflect the tolerances allowed for different vaccines. Duo can also be used to monitor supply chains for medicines or other products for which the specified time and temperature thresholds are relevant.

Timestrip® Complete

Timestrip® Complete is a cold chain product that actively monitors high and low threshold temperature breaches.

Use Timestrip Complete™ to help monitor temperature-sensitive shipments including vaccines, drugs, blood products, implants, diagnostic substances, ophthalmic solutions, intraocular lenses food, and chemicals.

Combining the Timestrip® PLUS ascending temperature monitoring indicator with the FCP™ descending temperature indicator technology, Timestrip® Complete gives you true 2-8°C temperature monitoring – from one supplier with one innovative solution.

Designed for vaccine storage and transport temperature monitoring, our Timestrip® Complete to confirm whether they have been exposed to hazardous conditions.  

We have effectively removed the need for cold chain managers to source different products from different suppliers, saving both time and money.

Supplied on a convenient card, the single use, irreversible indicators  provide auditable proof that a temperature breach has occurred.

The FCP™ indicates when descending temperature abuse occurs below its threshold, and the Timestrip® PLUS indicates when cumulative temperature abuse occurs, ascending above its threshold.

With this card, vaccines can be monitored throughout the supply chain to ensure they are kept within the required range of 2°C to 8°C.

 

Timestrip® Blood Temp 6°C and 10°C

Timestrip® Blood Temp range offer non-reversible temperature indicators are used to monitor temperature of whole blood, RBCs and plasma, stored in a blood bank, hospital refrigerator or temporary storage during transport. The 6°C and the 10°C range will alert to any breaches of blood/plasma in transit.

With the push of a button, Blood Temp 6°C and 10°C are activated and indicate simply and clearly if the core temperature of the blood has risen above the threshold temperature. Unlike some other blood bag  temperature indicators, Timestrip® Blood Temp 10°C and 6°C indicators can be stored at ambient temperatures and activated only when needed, contain no batteries and need no maintenance.

The Timestrip® Blood Temp range will help improve compliance and promote accountability during storage and transport. Removing the ambiguity of temperature abuse and knowing when blood stock can be returned and used safely, will also save time and money.

 

Timestrip® Short-Term Time Indicators

Short-term time indicators: One hour, 12 hour and 7 days, are irreversible single use disposable timers in a convenient adhesive smart label format; they can be attached directly onto a product or device and provide a visual reminder to replace a part, monitor an expiry date or check medical/diagnostic results.

The use cases vary, for example in healthcare, an easy-to-read Timestrip® can prompt nurses or patients themselves when repeat doses or dressing or cannula changes are due. This is particularly useful in helping hospital staff to comply with infection control procedures.

By putting a Timestrip® on a product or device, the end user has a constant visual reminder every time they use it. This encourages closer adherence to recommended or regulated replacement or servicing cycles, which will lead to a noticeable improvement in product or appliance performance. Optimal product or appliance performance will lead to improved satisfaction and brand loyalty and increased sales for suppliers.

Time indicators can be created as a custom option with own branding and other monitoring times, there is a MOQ of 100 units.

Timestrip® timer indicators can be stored inert at room-temperature until needed and activated. They are self-adhesive and splash proof, and expire 2 years after the manufacturing date. We can supply at  a minimum order of 100. Timestrip® indicators are designed to be used in a room temperature environment (average 22°C) they are not suitable for outside use.

Stock Range:

1 Hour Time Indicator
19mm x 32mm
1 Hour run-out window activation on top for room temperature use only

12 Hour Time Indicator

Timestrip® Long-Term Time Indicators

Timestrip® Long Term Time Indicators offer a helpful visual reminder of service and maintenance schedules for consumable components.

Accurate and reliable, Timestrips®  help ensure optimum performance from appliances that need replacement indicators or service reminder indicators in order to function effectively.

Longer-term time indicators: 1 month, 3 months, 6 month and 12 months, are used as medical, industrial filtration or product consumables replacement reminders, or as monthly-annual service requirements/appointment reminders. Also available in keychain format for 3 and 12 months, they measure 19mm x 40mm with activation on top (apart from Keychains) and are for room temperature use only.

FCP™ Irreversible Descending Temperature Indicators

FCP quickly provides a clear visual alert when products have been exposed to temperatures that have fallen below the trigger event.

The 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.

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. FCP 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.
