BEVERLY, Massachusetts, March 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensitech Inc.'s new TempTale(R)4 USB Dry Ice temperature monitor is the first on the market to offer a self-contained, probeless temperature monitor with automatic Adobe(R) PDF file generation capabilities and a USB communications interface. Sensitech, the global leader in cold-chain visibility solutions, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Carrier Corp., a business unit of United Technologies Corp. .
Controlled monitoring of dry ice shipments throughout the entire cold chain has never been easier or more cost efficient. The TempTale 4 USB Dry Ice monitor's standard USB interface and automatically generated PDF report facilitates shipment disposition and medicine dispensing by providing clinical sites with instant access to critical time-and-temperature data without the need for costly infrastructure and user training. The temperature monitor operates without external probes or wiring, which allows it to be placed directly in contact with the product to provide the highest levels of temperature accuracy.
Combining Sensitech's industry-leading temperature monitoring technology with USB 2.0 PC communications and a powerful on-board microcontroller enables user access to time-and-temperature data at shipment receiving sites without the need for proprietary software and hardware readers. Access to Adobe PDF reports permits on-site shipment decisions without computer installations and upgrades, system deployments or staff training.
The TempTale4 USB Dry Ice monitor also generates an encrypted data file compatible with Sensitech's TempTale Manager Desktop software and Internet-enabled ColdStream(R) Cold Chain Manager application. This protected data file facilitates the efficient exchange, storage, and analysis of time-and-temperature data and meets the record keeping requirements as stipulated by the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21, Part 11 compliance and quality assurance.
Sensitech's TempTale4 USB Dry Ice temperature monitor can be used to record and track cold chain shipment and storage processes of plasma, pharmaceuticals, and frozen tissue. It is also suitable for dry ice shipments in which temperatures can reach as low as -80 degrees C (-112 degrees F). Other applications include ultra-low temperature equipment validation (including plasma and red cell freezers), ultra-low temperature freezers, and shipping containers.
The TempTale4 USB Dry Ice monitor is available with programmable alarm settings and LCD display options, 16,000 data-point storage capacity, and a National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) Certificate of Validation. A hardware validation manual is available upon request to assist companies with their internal validation documentation requirements.
