Significance of Temperature Monitoring in cold chain management
Maintaining accurate temperature of freeze sensitive goods is critical for the efficacy of the products. As the product moves along its entire process cycle and/or delivery chain, maintaining this crucial parameter is critical. Monitoring of this critical temperature is a key to successfully manage the product efficacy during its entire lifecycle. Vaccines are one such product that is very sensitive to temperature and assuring that during its entire journey from manufacturing to the last mile where it is delivered to the patient is crucial and mandatory by the regulation. Therefore, vaccine data logger comes into play assuring that quality & safety of the product is retained
Following WHO PQS Standard
WHO has specifically defined the guidelines for Performance, Quality and safety (PQS) popularly known as PQS. There are various guidelines based on the various stages of the complete cold chain. One such guideline is PQS/E006 for the 30 days temperature monitoring / data logging devices. A data logger that is certified under WHO/PQS/E006 standard gives enormous confidence and assurance in the cold chain solution.

G-Tek’s offers cost effective, WHO certified LM-XS Pro E006 data logger.
LM-XS Pro E006 data logger from G-Tek is a 30day refrigerator temperature logger with external sensor meeting the requirements of WHO PQS E006/TR06.3.FF
Features of LM-XS Pro E006
It displays “✔” if the temperature has remained within the recommended limits. It displays “X” if there are any heat or freeze temperature violations, for a period beyond recommended limits. It gives an audio-visual alarm for any violations of temperature. It stores the data up to 120 days and user can see the history data for the last 30 days without downloading or connecting it to the computer.
All the parameters and alarm limits are pre-configured as per the requirement of the guidelines. Intuitive menus and large display make it easy to use. With its long battery life and economically priced, it is indispensable in Vaccine Vial Monitoring
Data logged by the data logger also helps in understanding how the appliance has performed over the period of time. Which also helps to take proactive decisions about maintenance or upgradation, or modification required if any. A well-documented, dependable data builds the confidence in the product / process and helps reduce wastage while improving quality.
In summary vaccine data loggers monitor temperature in the cold chain to safeguard the quality, efficacy, and safety of temperature sensitive goods. Their continuous monitoring, real-time alerts, and accurate temperature records contribute to the successful distribution and administration of vaccines, assures the delivery of safe, secure, and consumable products to individuals.
