Temptime and the Improvement of the Delivery of Global Healthcare
Temptime is the world leader in development and manufacture of time-temperature indicators that protect patients by alerting the user that a medical product has been exposed to potentially damaging temperatures. We perform a vital role in the delivery of global healthcare by providing manufacturers and distributors with heat and freeze indicators that monitor medical products. Our extensive range of time-temperature indicators change color to signal the occurrence of a potentially damaging heat or freeze event, allowing the user to determine whether or not the product should be used in the treatment patients. The indicators can be affixed to an individual unit to follow the product from manufacture to use, inserted into the secondary packaging to monitor multiple units of the product, or into shipping boxes to monitor the shipping carton during a shipping segment.
Benefits of Monitoring Temperature of Medical Products
Patients, doctors, healthcare professionals, manufacturers and distributors all want the medical products used for patient treatment to be safe and fully effective at the time of administration. Many medical products can be damaged and lose efficacy if they are exposed to cumulative heat over a period of time, high heat excursions or freeze events. Monitoring the temperature ranges to which the products are exposed from the time of manufacture to the time of use is a means of extending the manufacturer’s high standards of quality to the end user.
The Oral Polio Vaccine vial is labeled with the Vaccine Vial Monitor that is manufactured by Temptime.
