FDA Temperature Monitoring
As a company regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration, you can be audited for your compliance with the regulatory requirements for the storage of your biologics or compounds. FDA internal inspection guides reference the word "Temperature" over 250 times and over 1600 warning letters have been issued that mention the word "temperature".
Whether you are subject to GLP, GMP, or HACCP guidelines, in all regulatory environments you need a written procedure that defines the quality practices for the storage of material and how discrepancies will be handled. It is our experience as a company that these procedures and the relevant data are often examined during an audit.
While manual procedures such as bulb thermometer readings written on a form are sometimes acceptable to the FDA, the cost and potential risk of noncompliance when using manual procedures may be a factor in your quality and compliance program. Automated methods provide better data (i.e. 24 hour coverage) but in regulated settings must be acquired using validated systems like the Networked Robotics Tempurity™ System that are documented and operated to standards required by the FDA.
Use Tempurity™ to Satisfy your FDA Temperature Monitoring Requirements
The network-based Tempurity System centralizes the storage of your FDA-regulated environmental data from freezers, incubators, and other instruments throughout your company. Data can be collected directly from data communication with some types of high-end instruments or via Networked Robotics' advanced digital sensors. Data collection is enabled via a company-proprietary network device called an NTMS.
Tempurity has been validated for FDA standards, including a comprehensive validation suite with specifications, test plan, validation report, and Networked-Robotics-internal procedures for training and the development of our products. The Tempurity System is open to quality audit by you or by government regulatory bodies at our offices in the Chicago area. For a list of the compliance features of Tempurity click here.
