Cold Chain in the Pharma Industry
There is a new focus on drugs that must be kept at controlled room temperature (CRT) – this is usually defined as 20°C to 25°C. In recent years, instances of improper vaccine storage have been reported. An estimated 17% to 37% of providers expose vaccines to improper storage temperatures, and refrigerator temperatures are more commonly kept too cold than too warm.
To monitor the cold chain process in the medical and pharmaceutical industry, Lascar offers a range of low cost USB data loggers pre-programmed to meet specific temperature requirements for various cold chain applications. With kits available to monitor pharmaceutical products, blood and platelets in transportation, your cold chain needs are covered.
What Do The Experts Say?
“The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the leading national public health institute of the United States. The CDC have a set of guidelines for maintaining and managing the vaccine Cold Chain, our products meet these guidelines.
The majority of commonly recommended vaccines require storage temperatures of 2°C to 8°C and must not be exposed to freezing temperatures. Whereas other vaccines must be stored in a continuously frozen state -15°C with no freeze-thaw cycles. Our Cold Chain loggers are perfect for these regulations, they are cost-effective, multi-use loggers pre-programmed with set sample rates and alarms for monitoring Chilled Goods, Frozen Goods and Ambient Pharmaceutical, simply press an on-board button to start logging”
Senonics manufactures modern, high quality, robust transportation loggers.
Suppose you are to transport some sensitive item, chemical or food product and would like to know the exact conditions under which it was transported. You can use our loggers to record the complete environmental condition throughout the journey.
Senonics loggers offer the largest logger depth of all similar portable loggers so you will never run short of logging space.

Calibration and Data Logging
USB Vs WiFi – Which One Do I Choose?
USB data loggers enjoy a long battery life (12+ months) with a user replaceable battery. Users are alerted to alarms by a flashing red LED on the device. An on-board display shows max, min and current log. Data is downloaded manually by connecting the device to the PC USB port. These loggers are the lowest cost vaccine solutions.
WiFi data loggers allow remote access to all readings via any internet-enabled device with multiple loggers viewed at any one time or by using the EasyLog Cloud App for iOS and Android. The unit can be programmed to send instant email alarm notifications and an on-board display shows max, min, current log and whether the unit is in alarm. The units can run from batteries for up to 2 years (EL-MOTE) or can be powered by mains.
