Zincell® temperature logging trials for vaccine storage and cold chain monitoring going well (October 2020). Incorporates a unique dual coil for NFC and charging the rechargeable printed battery so data can always be retrieved.

Zincell temperature logger

Vaccines, in common with all biological substances, degrade over time. Exposure to extremes of heat, cold, sunlight or fluorescent light can accelerate this process further and once potency has been lost, it cannot be restored. Cold chain is a term used to describe the specific temperature conditions in which vaccines should be kept during storage and distribution to protect against loss of potency.

The logger shown here is for vaccines stored in the temperature range 2 to 8 degrees Celcius. Loggers for frozen vaccines at -18 degrees Celcius are also being developed.
