TOPPAN FORMS Provides Cool Package for Medical Care with Temperature
Trace Function Integral to Future GDP Measures

January 18, 2018

DigitalHybrid Company TOPPAN FORMS CO., LTD. (TOPPAN FORMS, hereunder) announces that it will begin to provide the Cool Package for Medical Care with Temperature Trace Function. This product, which consists of a cool packaging box, MechaCool refrigerant and a temperature logger, enables a constant, monitored temperature for transport, maintaining an internal temperature of 2 to 8°C, ideal for transporting pharmaceutical products, without requiring setting from the time of purchase.
Conventionally, to record the temperatures in a cool box, a temperature logger was required to be purchased separately. In addition, because the temperature logger was put inside of the box, the internal temperature of the box could not be visually confirmed during transportation. The Cool Package for Medical Care with Temperature Trace Function has a built-in Ontrasys Tag, the temperature logger developed by TOPPAN FORMS, on the front panel of the dedicated cool box for pharmaceutical products, allowing visual confirmation of the temperature in the box without opening it. This also makes it possible to easily confirm the temperatures inside and outside of the box by using a dedicated smartphone app.

Features

  • 1. This product allows visual confirmation of the temperature in the cool box during transportation without opening it.
  • 2. A constant temperature pocket for refrigerant was originally developed and adapted for the cool box, allowing a temperature of 2 to 8°C to be maintained for many hours.
  • 3. Working with an easy-to-use dedicated smartphone app, customers can easily confirm the temperatures inside and outside of the box (supports Bluetooth/NFC communications).
  • 4. Collected temperature data can be easily shown as a graph on a smartphone (with temperature deviation alert function).
  • 5. Data collected with a smartphone can be sent in CSV format by email, enabling an easy connection with an advanced server.
  • 6. The product can trace location information data at a same time, working with the GPS function of smartphone.
  • 7. By turning on airplane mode, which emits no radio waves, this product can be used on a plane and at a power off area in a hospital*.

Background

The industry is seeing a trend toward stricter transportation quality control, in accordance with international quality management standards, Good Distribution Practice (GDP), in the distribution process of pharmaceutical products. This has increased the importance of constant temperature transport. Now TOPPAN FORMS achieves strict temperature control with the Cool Package for Medical Care with Temperature Trace Function, which enables efficient operation with generic equipment, such as smartphones and tablet terminals, contributing to improved transportation quality for customers.
