Datalogger: ensuring the quality and integrity of temperature sensitive products
In a common sense, to validate implies to show or confirm the validity of something. Accordingly validation can be applied to a diverse range of products, procedures and circumstances. In the area of import and export of frozen items, where it is important to maintain a stable environment during shipping-validation becomes mandatory to assure that the products will deliver at the end destination without losing their integrity.
Food items, pharmaceutical products and vaccines are usually temperature sensitive products, which if not shipped under strict controls, can lose their integrity and quality or can be injurious to health as well. There are several quality control organizations began to develop specific rules and regulations to protect the integrity and quality of the pharmaceutical products. Some of these organizations which work in this field include HACCP, WHO, SFDA, GMP, FDA, GDP and MHRA.
These guidelines of these organizations were developed for ensuring the integrity of the products right from the manufacturing to storage, to shipping, to delivery of the temperature sensitive items at the end destination.
Most of the companies generally prefer to hire a third party company who provides technical and validation services in the field of temperature and humidity sensitive storage and distribution. These companies utilize the most innovative devices and follow all the guidelines related to packaging, storage, shipping and delivery in order to ensure the integrity and quality of the products.
It is an electronic instrument which is used to record data over time or in a relation to locations either through inbuilt sensors or through external instruments. This device is small sized, battery powered and portable which you can carry with yourselves. There are several dataloggers available for industrial application. However, not all of them are same. Each data logger has specific feature and functionality. Some of the widely used data logger includes:
USP Multi use Data logger
This data logger is highly recommended for evaluating the temperature and humidity in regular time interval. This device measures the temperature and humidity, which can be transmitted to a professional computer via USB.
This is a single use, preprogrammed data logger which is specifically designed for measuring temperature during the shipment of temperature sensitive items like chemicals, vaccines, biological materials and pharmaceutical products.
Besides the above mentioned products, there are also several types of data loggers available for temperature and humidity monitoring. If you would like to get information about other types of dataloggers, please visit www.compliance.com.sa.
