Control and monitoring of extremely low temperatures during vaccine transport, cold chain, pharmaceuticals, HACCP ...
ELPRO Lepenik, in cooperation with our partners, presents in the article below precision data loggers (meters) for measuring and monitoring the temperature during the transport of vaccines or in the cold chain. The latter were very necessary and relevant at the time of the corona of COVID 19.
In the Official Journal of the European Union (2013/C 68/01, March 2013) state that in-transit temperature monitoring equipment in vehicles and/or containers must be maintained and calibrated regularly – at least once a year (point 9.2); if temperature-controlled vehicles are used, the in-transit temperature monitoring equipment must be maintained and calibrated regularly. Temperature mapping must be carried out under representative conditions, taking into account seasonal variations, and information must be provided to customers on request to demonstrate that products have been stored at the appropriate temperature (point 9.4).
Transporting Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine requires storage at minus 80 degrees Celsius (-80 °C), which poses a key challenge for distribution to all corners of the globe. (Source: Metropolitan 11/11/11. 2020).
applications for temperature measurement in media (e.g. water, masses, foodstuffs, etc.) and HACCP systems, temperature monitoring during transport, warehouses, in-process, cold chain (refrigerators and vaccines, cold rooms, freezers, etc.).
Logger (memory unit) EBI 310-TE is suitable for monitoring the temperature during transport of vaccines. It ensures simultaneous measurement and storage of temperature during the actual transport of vaccines.
The external sensor (probe) of the logger can measure temperatures down to -200 °C.
In case you need an external sensor (probe) of a different design, we can manufacture it to order: ELPRO Lepenik & Co.

From the programme of our partner COMET we highlight IoT wireless data logger for precise measurement of ambient temperature conditions. COMET meters are characterised by features and benefits such as:
In our product range you can find a range of COMET data loggers suitable for temperature monitoring during vaccine transport, in pharmaceuticals, cold chain and other applications.
At the ELPRO Calibration Laboratory, which is accredited to SIST EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017, we can provide you with we also calibrate the sensors .
