Thin Film Electronics announces first commercial shipment of temperature sensor smart labels

Emerson is the initial partner being supplied - Thinfilm plans initial launch with other key customers in 2017-Q2 including Temptime

2 May 2017 | Editor

Thin Film Electronics (Thinfilm) has announced they have successfully completed the first commercial shipment of a novel hybrid temperature sensor smart label, delivering a production quantity to partner, Emerson.

Thinfilm also expects to ship labels in June to another partner - Temptime - who is focused on the pharmaceutical cold-chain space.

According to Thinfilm their smart label is a temperature-sensing device that includes both printed components and conventional circuitry, which allows it to detect temperature excursions outside of a specific range programmed during the manufacturing process.

The labels feature fully printed electrochromic displays produced using roll-based manufacturing processes at Thinfilm's facility in Linköping, Sweden.

About Temptime

Founded in 1987, Temptime scientists developed the first miniaturized technology to monitor temperature exposure of vials containing the oral polio vaccine. This time-temperature monitoring device continues to be the only technology that meets the strict specifications of the world’s leading health organization for distributing vaccines to developing countries. It satisfies the World Health Organization’s (WHO) PQS VVM performance specification, and we follow WHO’s guidelines for manufacturers of temperature monitoring devices.

Today, pharmaceutical corporations, biotechnology companies and hospitals are using our devices to help improve the storage and handling of hundreds of medical products by visually identifying when a temperature excursion has occurred. We are honored to serve these organizations and contribute to improving the health of people around the world. Temptime is dedicated to continually developing new technologies that will meaningfully improve global health for years to come.
