Timestrip® has introduced what is believed to be the first multiple-use temperature indicator of its kind available. The Timestrip neo Multi is an electronic temperature and time indicator that can be used up to five times before being replaced. The resettable feature significantly reduces the cost per use as well as simplifying inventory control. By avoiding the need to dispose of indicators after each use, it also represents a move towards sustainability, reducing waste by up to 80%.

Early adopters of the neo Multi include the ‘food served on the move’ sector, i.e. air, road and rail operators who need to monitor the storage conditions of food to be served in transit. By tracking the conditions experienced by products at unit or pack level, passenger safety can be safeguarded, and unnecessary food waste avoided.

Customers have a small reset device into which the neo indicator clips, and with a single button press, the indicator is ready for its next use. The number of uses is shown on the product by a set of LEDs. Accidental resetting or tampering with the indicator are avoided by requiring use of the special reset device.

In common with the rest of the neo range, the neo Multi is robust and very small and lightweight, making it suitable for attaching even to small products. Scanning a QR code on the face of the neo Multi allows access to the individual serial number record for full auditability.

Custom variants of the neo Multi can be specified to address specific challenges in temperature and time monitoring.

“Following the enthusiastic reception for the Timestrip neo range after its introduction eighteen months ago, we are delighted to introduce this further example of technology innovation,” said Gabriel McGlynn, Chairman of Timestrip. “We expect strong interest from sectors including hospitals and pharmacies as well as food and beverage.”
