Berlinger is a leader in electronic temperature monitoring for the healthcare industry. For more than 30 years we have worked with major drug manufacturers and regulators to successfully monitor and protect temperature sensitive drugs shipping around the world. Our mission is to produce highly accurate and reliable products that enable our customers to make informed decisions when handling temperature sensitive products. Product Overview The Fridge-tag® 2 is designed to automate the documentation of FREEZER & REFRIGERATOR temperatures. It is requited to document temperatures daily, to store the records for three years and document steps taken to correct temperature excursions. The Fridge-tag® 2 produces a 60 day report that can be printed, e-mail and stored. It comes with an NIST traceable certificate of accuracy. Simply detach from the external probe, connect to any computer via USB, and download the report like a removable memory stick. SOFTWARE IS NOT NEEDED. Reports are compliant with CDC guidance. Pharmacists are immunizing more patients. Increasingly, pharmacies are also holding high value biological products for patients who “brown bag” their drugs to the doctor’s office. Monitoring refrigerator temperatures is critical to insure drug product efficacy and to lower the pharmacy’s risk of product loss. Testimonials “ I have searched the web and nothing else more closely matches our need for information than the Fridge-tag® 2.” — Garry L. “ The CDC wants an electronic monitor that meets a long list of expectations. The Fridge-tag® 2 is both the only one to meet all of them and do it WITHOUT SOFTWARE. We love it!” — Bob M. “ We put the Fridge-tag® in all of our pharmacies to monitor the stand-alone refrigerators.” — Donna M. “ I didn’t need this product until the power went out over-night. I had to throw away a $500 syringe because I didn’t have data on the maximum temperature or time out of refrigeration.” — Patel G.
