Digitized Time Temperature Indicators
Varcode’s patented Smart Tag™ utilizes technology that causes the barcode to shift dynamically as the temperature changes within the shipping container. The labels provide cumulative temperature-time exposure at a variety of time intervals and can tell when the shipment dropped below an acceptable temperature range for a predetermined period of time. The result is a barcode that can tell a story every time it’s scanned.
- The SmartTag™ can be applied to the product in-line or post-production.
- Format the SmartTag™ in any industry barcode standard, including UPC, EAN, Code 128, and more.
- Shipping pharmaceuticals or food? Varcode designed the SmartTag™ to aid with FDA compliance.
