Reconsidering Temperature Indicators

By:
Posted: 12/12/2010

Electronic temperature indicators are displacing chemical indicators for ensuring product quality during the last mile of distribution of temperature-sensitive products.

This paper will review global regulatory and standards-based guidance for time and temperature recording devices including guidelines from the FDA, United States Pharmacopeia (USP), and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Documented evidence will support the author's conclusion that chemical indicators are not appropriate for use in the pharmaceutical industry and that electronic temperature indicators should be considered the most appropriate alternative, particularly for last-mile distribution.
