University of South Florida study shows correlation of ThermoTrace TTI Barcode Label compared to data loggers
DeltaTrak®, a leading innovator of cold chain management solutions, today announced a recent study completed by the University of South Florida shows the ThermoTrace TTI Labels from DeltaTrak have a 96.6% correlation when compared to a data logger using Degree Minutes, and a 93% accuracy compared to a data logger using mean kinetic temperature (MKT) calculations. The ThermoTrace TTI can be interpreted in the same manner as a data logger when evaluating the time above threshold temperature.
ThermoTrace TTI Labels have been purposely formulated to meet FDA requirements for monitoring various types of seafood shipments in the cold chain. “Based on this independent study completed by the University of South Florida, it has been shown that our ThermoTrace TTI labels are a cost effective way of auditing the seafood supply chain,” said Fred Wu, CEO of DeltaTrak.
ThermoTrace TTI labels are an ideal audit tool when used to monitor the supply chain for compliance with food safety guidelines and regulations. These smart labels integrate temperature monitoring with widely accepted and patented barcode technology to provide accurate data collection and record keeping. Unlike any other time-temperature label on the market, the ThermoTrace TTI label from DeltaTrak provides a cloud application for data analysis and reporting. Scanning the label will provide the user with an immediate response message indicating the temperature and quality of the product being monitored. Labels can be scanned using either industrial barcode readers or iPhone and Android smartphones. DeltaTrak provides a free and easy to use smartphone application that is currently available from the iPhone App Store or the Google Play store.
US and International seafood producers and suppliers are inspected and required to have HACCP plans when shipping seafood to US consumers. ThermoTrace TTI labels are a cost effective tool to help producers and receivers better understand the quality of their supply chains and protect consumers by only delivering high quality, safe seafood.
DeltaTrak will showcase its new ThermoTrace TTI Barcode label during the Seafood Expo North America (booth # 1885), at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts, March 15-17, 2015.
