Temptime - Temperature Monitoring Solutions for Medication Shipments, Storage, and Pharmacy Facilities

Company Background 

Founded in 1987, Temptime scientists developed the first miniaturized technology to monitor time-temperature exposure of vials containing the oral polio vaccine. Our commitment to public health is reflected in our dedication to being on the leading edge of understanding pharmacy needs, and bringing new and patient-centric temperature monitoring solutions both to the pharmacy operation and into the patient’s home. 

Product Overview 

Temptime has been improving global health with its range of temperature indicators and monitoring devices for over 30 years. By reducing the risk and costs associated with unpredictable temperature events in production, storage, and shipment – Temptime helps specialty pharmacies save money and increase patient confidence in medications delivered. Our products include: 

• Low cost, chemically-based heat indicators and freeze indicators for application to temperature sensitive medication and biologicals. 

• Heat and freeze shipment indicators for medications. 

• Electronic EDGE® wireless temperature and humidity sensing systems with cloud-based data storage and sharing. 

EDGE® Wireless Sensing Systems

 The EDGE family of wireless Bluetooth®-enabled sensors monitor and record temperature data 24/7. EDGE W-200 wireless facility monitoring system monitors both temperature and humidity in medication storage areas, helping you comply with accreditation and regulatory requirements. Data can be viewed remotely using our web-based application EDGEConnect® and customizable alerts tell you instantly if any areas exceed your limits. EDGE M-300 and EDGE S-400 programmable data loggers are ideal for monitoring temperatures during transport or storage with the ability to: 

• View and share temperature data using the free EDGEVue™ mobile app. 

• Customize alarm limits, datalogging intervals, startup options, and more. 

• Store unlimited data on EDGECloud® and generate reports through the EDGEVue® web application. 

EDGE® PQ Performance Qualification Testing 

As a specialty pharmacy, you already know the importance of performance qualification (PQ) testing. For one thing, it ensures that the critical and often lifesaving medications you send to patients have not been exposed to unsafe temperatures that could impact their effectiveness. It’s also required for certain pharmacy accreditations and participation in some pharmacy networks. Temptime’s EDGE devices help specialty pharmacies simplify performance qualification (PQ) testing to optimize pack-outs and satisfy accreditation requirements. Since some pharmacy networks are making third-party validation testing a condition of participation – Temptime also offers Third-Party PQ Testing Services. 

TransTracker® Shipment Indicators 

TransTracker® visual temperature indicators monitor medication heat and freeze exposures during shipment and storage. Simple to read and understand, patients can easily see if medications have been exposed to extreme temperatures – cutting down on unnecessary reshipments due to suspected temperature damage. These cost-effective, single-use indicators also help with state regulation compliance.
