Affordable Cold Chain Solutions
As an industry leader in quality and control, CCL Healthcare provides our customers with an unbeatable selection of cost-effective temperature monitoring devices for cold chain pharmaceuticals. With patient health and safety at the forefront of our priorities, our customers rely on CCL Healthcare to deliver an accurate temperature indicator that is easy to use and available in a wide variety of formats. Our ascending temperature indicators utilize irreversible color change technology when exposed to temperatures above safe levels.By using the melting points of various chemical compounds, CCL’s labels with temperature indicators verify that safe temperature has been maintained throughout the entire supply chain, with reading accuracies within +/-1oC and +/-2oC available. Our temperature excursion indicators can measure temperatures ranging from 25oC to greater than 150oC and come in a variety of easy to read formats.
We offer a circle indicator that changes color from white to red when the temperature threshold has been exceeded as well as a human readable
message which specifies that the temperature has been exceeded. Both formats are simple for anyone to use with instructions for reading the temperature gauge right on the label eliminating any possible confusion during interpretation.
In addition to our line of ascending temperature products, CCL Healthcare also offers a descending temperature indicator. Freeze Check Plus consists of one red and one green gel encapsulated inside of a bubble. The green gel is visible upon application, but disintegrates when the low temperature threshold is reached, leaving behind a red gel. Like our ascending temperature indicators, Freeze Check Plus includes instructions for reading right on the label.
CCL Healthcare is dedicating to economically meeting all of our customer’s cold chain needs through the elimination of waste and duplicity. For products that require both ascending and descending indicators, we offer a dual indicator designed to verify both high and low thresholds on one label, eliminating the need to purchase two separate indicators. Our labels can also include incremental indicators allowing medical professionals to assess how close a product came to the critical threshold. With all of these products, CCL is able to seamlessly integrate temperature indicators into your company’s uniquely designed labels and packaging, lowering costs of application for a second label and generating a better looking product. CCL Healthcare has years of experience providing temperature indicator labels to our customers in a variety of applications.
CCL has works with the medical device industry to streamline their label design. For years, two labels were used on temperature sensitive products: a barcode for product information and a temperature indicator to warn of damage to the product. CCL combined these labels to create a 2D barcode with a temperature indicator built on top of it.
When the threshold temperature is exceeded, the indicator blocks the barcode preventing it from being scanned and moving further along the supply chain. Through CCL’s combined label, the manufacturer was able to achieve both time and cost savings while improving patients’ quality of care. Let CCL Healthcare be your solution to cold chain monitoring.
