Regulations and good practice guidelines state that hospitals, pharmacies, life science and distribution organisations are required to carry out temperature mapping to verify the performance and efficiency of temperature-controlled equipment and areas.

While some departments may carry out temperature mapping in-house, some outsource this responsibility. Here are some key benefits of outsourcing temperature mapping:

1. Compliance

By outsourcing your temperature monitoring systems to an accredited company, you can be reassured that they will comply with regulatory requirements. As a UKAS accredited company, ISO 17025 calibration laboratory, our methods at Contronics are aligned with MHRA, WHO, ISPE and EU GxP standards and best practice guidelines.

2. Avoid losses

Another one of the benefits of outsourcing temperature mapping is that your organisation can avoid unnecessary losses. Many factors can cause temperature variations, such as weather, stock loading and movement, all of which have a risk of impacting the quality of products stored and can result in damage or loss. Outsourcing temperature mapping can help ensure optimum conditions are met, to avoid such losses.

3. Expertise

As soon as you outsource to a company who specialises in temperature mapping, you get immediate access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise from highly skilled and fully trained professionals. At Contronics, our Field Engineers will attend the site and complete the mapping study using high accuracy data loggers backed up with ISO 17025 standard calibration and full traceability.

4. Reduce staff time & costs

The last on the list of benefits of outsourcing temperature mapping is that it reduces staff time and costs. Temperature mapping is sometimes conducted twice a year, which can be time-consuming for your team. By outsourcing, your employees will be able to focus on other important aspects of their roles and increase productivity. You may also find you don’t need to employ additional people internally and purchase costly mapping equipment, which can lead to long-term savings.
