Temperature loggers

In healthcare institutions, the temperature of medication in refrigerators is often recorded manually. In practice, this means that an employee of the institution goes through all the refrigerators every day to check and register the temperature of the medication. This data is then manually entered into the system. For healthcare institutions with multiple locations, this is a cumbersome, time-consuming and therefore expensive process.

These data are stored so that they can be viewed and read at a later time. This takes place during the transport and/or storage of temperature-sensitive products and products that are sensitive to moisture.

Temperature recorders, also known as data loggers, are usually used for this. However, registration often involves many administrative actions. LogTag Online has been developed to make this process easier and more user-friendly.
