    The Importance Of Time With Food Safety Temperature Monitoring

    When monitoring the temperatures of equipment and food products in your operation, time is an important factor in ensuring food safety. The FDA specifies how long food is considered to be in the “safe zone.” You should have a HACCP plan in place that will help you avoid costly product loss by making sure that you have enough time to move your food, should any of your equipment start failing.

    When monitoring the temperatures of equipment and food products in your operation, time is an important factor in ensuring food safety. The FDA specifies how long food is considered to be in the “safe zone.” You should have a HACCP plan in place that will help you avoid costly product loss by making sure that you have enough time to move your food, should any of your equipment start failing.

    When heating food, the food must reach and maintain a certain temperature for a specified amount of time.In a cook and chill operation, there are strict time requirements. Food not only has to be chilled to the approved temperature range, but it has to reach that temperature in a specific amount of time, as per FDA guidelines. The FDA considers the Danger zone to be 40 °F to 140 °F, as this is the temperature range where most bacteria can grow. Foods that are exposed to this temperature range for more than 4 hours at a time are considered not safe for consumption. Measuring time, as well as temperature, will enable you to comply with FDA guidelines for food safety.

    Having a wireless temperature monitoring system will ensure that your food/equipment is in an acceptable HACCP temperature range, and will also alert you when your food/equipment goes out of the acceptable range and for how long. Besides monitoring temperature, your HACCP plan should include a time element, as it is one of the important Critical Control Points. Any temperature monitoring system must be able to help automate all your HACCP requirements, thus minimizing downtime and the chance of bacteria growth.

    Remember, when it comes to temperature monitoring and food safety, time is of the essence!

    Life Science FAQ's

    Why is environmental control important for life sciences?

    For the life science and Lab industries, managing the environment is imperative. Keeping precise temperatures, humidity levels, and other parameters can ensure the stored products, like critical vaccines,  remain effective. ECS has been working with various vaccine manufactures and the CDC to help our suite of products maximize their potential. From this experience, our software has built in analytics to measure all necessary environmental parameters to ensure product efficacy and sustainability.

    Here at ECS, we use NIST calibrated probes in glycol and special probes specifically designed for ultra low temperatures to provide accurate and precise temperature readings. In the life science industry, accuracy and precision can be a make or break situation. Each piece of ECS hardware includes a datalogger incorporated to make sure the temperature is consistently accounted for and measured. So you’re never missing a beat throughout the ENTIRE cold chain. 

    Don’t leave anything to chance. ECS can be your perfect temperature regulation solution.

    Are there risks in life science settings if temperature is NOT monitored?

    Did you know that roughly 44% of labs don’t have a temperature monitoring system? Meaning that almost half of labs are assuming the risks associated with mismanagement of temperature regulation. 

    Monitoring temperature and other critical environmental influences has become a growing need for many life science industries. To address this, ECS has evolved into a full-service monitoring solution. ECS innovations and solutions are designed to meet the ever-changing market needs and constantly evolving regulatory requirements related to food, drug, and manufacturing processes and controls. These manufacturing processes and controls can include HACCP, the Joint Commission, AABB, GLP/GMP, FCC, and FDA.

    If you need to keep all laboratory specimens or products in a monitored environment  to sustain their potency, temperature monitoring is a daily responsibility. The CDC highly recommends logging lab refrigerator and freezer temperatures at least twice a day. Malfunctions and environmental disruptions can be a constant risk, so incorporating a system to record temperatures is absolutely necessary as an added fail safe.

    Utilizing our temperature monitoring solution and taking advantage of our mobile application can not only keep you from losing your valuable materials or products, but also helps protect time and money investments too. Furthermore, it supports your ability to serve patients and customers, thus potentially saving or significantly impacting lives.

    There isn’t a universal temperature for biological materials, samples, or vaccines. The necessary stored temperature requirements can vary depending on what you’re storing. Monitoring your life science items through detailed recordings and logged data enables your facility to know actual sample temperatures.

    At the start and end of each work day, you can record the minimum and maximum temperature. If temperatures or other environmental factors, like humidity or CO2 levels, aren’t where they should be, you’ll need to take immediate action. Afterall, there is no such thing as caring too much about your units’ content. Being able to frequently check your systems with ECS can put your mind at ease while minimizing risks.

    What are the different types of alerts I can set up for life sciences?

    Once you’ve mounted your IntelliSensor on your equipment that requires monitoring and plugged in the IntelliGate, you can start to view your data and receive alerts in real-time. From the receipt, you can also print customizable reports.

    Your data can be viewed from anywhere and at any time!

    What are the benefits of life science temperature and humidity control?

    Life science industries require precise control of atmospheric conditions, including temperature and humidity. This type of monitoring is essential to keep facilities running safely and efficiently. The main benefits for monitoring atmospheric conditions can include:

    • Airborne infection control. Regulating humidity and temperature ensures aerosols and other hazardous airborne materials cannot spread as easily. Proper humidity control is essential to the wellbeing of facility workers as well.
    • Equipment protection. Proper environmental regulation protects sensitive equipment from electrostatic discharges, and also reduces the risk of damage from excessive moisture buildup on the equipment.
    • Data accuracy. Lab data is directly tied to the source material that you’re examining and regulating. If the humidity and temperatures are either too low or too high, it can cause negative effects and possibly result in inaccurate results.<
    • Energy efficiency. Equipment in life science facilities are abundant. With that, the power needed to run these types of facilities can be immense. Regulating and monitoring the temperature and humidity can help with a facility's energy consumption. This can lead to reduced energy and saving facilities valuable resources.

    ECS can offer you and your facility a turnkey solution which guarantees that valuable data will be transmitted to your network, before our installer leaves the site.

    Is temperature monitoring a legal requirement for life sciences?

    Today, temperature monitoring equipment can be affordable and easily accessible with the help of ESC. The CDC mentions that temperature monitoring systems are like insurance for your facility, and could possibly be the best protection for your vaccines and samples.

    If you don't have a temperature monitoring system, now can be the perfect time to get one with ECS. If you're in the food service, healthcare, life science, or retail industry a temperature monitoring system can be absolutely essential for your operation. Many companies rely on a temperature monitoring system to uphold quality assurance, maintain operational efficiency, or meet regulatory compliance. In some cases, legal requirements exist, enacting the need for life science companies to maintain temperature records.

    Facilities handling vaccines, pharmaceuticals, tissue samples and other medical assets that must remain at certain temperatures need to follow best practices for storage. Inventory must be in compliance with regulations and these must be proved when audited. Proper storage is critical for these items, and loss of potency due to improper temperatures can reduce the safety and efficacy of the assets.

    A temperature monitoring system that includes a data logger solves these issues. Data is automatically stored that personnel can download, print and export for use in reports for internal and external regulators.
