SmartSystem and Modular Real-Time®
Full Real-Time Cold Chain Monitoring, half the cost
Increasingly sensitive drugs
Pharmaceutical drugs are complex chemical or biological preparations that can become ineffectual, or even toxic, when exposed to extreme temperatures. Cell and gene therapies and patient-centric drugs in general have amplified the value, but also the sensitivity of modern drugs. Increasing sensitivity comes with even more complexity in handling the associated supply chains.
The need for Real-Time Temperature Monitoring
In times of disrupted supply chains, pharma cold chain responsibles have experienced a steep increase in the need for real-time monitoring – on product or pallet level and overall supply chain monitoring. Real-time condition monitoring on different levels is needed to secure patient safety, regulatory and quality compliance and to handle commercial risks. The consequences of a stability breach or the loss of a drug are severe – high associated costs and commercial risks for expedited shippings, replacements, waste, or even the complete stop of a clinical study.
The challenge with Real-Time Temperature Monitoring
Cold chain responsibles struggle with the increasing costs of Real-Time Temperature Monitoring.
- Are you working with two separate solutions? One real-time monitoring system to get insights into the operational handling and position of your product and another one for product temperature monitoring for quality assurance purposes.
- Do you see the benefits of real-time monitoring of your product, but struggle with the increased cost of monitoring every product or pallet with real-time technology?
The added value of a modular system
With SmartSystem and Modular Real-Time® you achieve full real-time visibility of product and supply chain data at significant cost reductions in hardware, communication and automated read-out. Thanks to smart BLE intercommunication, data transfer of every single device to the cloud is enabled in real-time via just a few real-time parent devices. Product and supply-chain visibility can be managed in one single-source open platform at a lower costs.
Monitoring every pallet/packet or drug kit real-time results in high costs in Cold chain monitoring due to communication and battery technologies required to enable it. With modular real-time the amount of needed real-time devices can be greatly reduced, while achieving 100% visibility.About SmartSystem
