Cold Chain Monitoring

Kaye Log – Cold Chain Monitoring During Transport

Monitor your sensitive product shipment on your smartphone

A recent study by the Center of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics found that nearly 25% of vaccines become degraded and lose efficacy by the time they reach their destination, mainly due to improper shipping procedures.

With the recent focus on vaccines as well as the continuously growing number biologics and healthcare products and more global manufacturing, regulatory bodies from around the world have released enhanced GSP (Good Storage Practices) and GDP (Good Distribution Practices) to ensure the safety and efficacy of temperature-sensitive medicinal products.

At Kaye we understand the extreme importance of keeping track of your supplies across the cold chain. Whether you’re transporting lifesaving pharmaceutical medicines and vaccines, or keeping track of biotech assets that are heading to a blood bank. Each junction and every mile of transport is putting your assets at more risk of experiencing an excursion. That’s why Kaye has created some of the most reliable and robust equipment to help monitor the cold chain.

Kaye’s cold chain monitoring solutions leverage the use of Internet of Things (IoT) tech and intuitive sensors and probes to protect assets across the entire cold chain transit. From the when the pharmaceutical or biotech asset is created in the laboratory, to when it’s put into storage, to when it’s brought out and cycled into production, to when it is transported to a warehouse to be sorted, and finally sent out for distribution, Kaye’s solutions can track it throughout the entire process. And our solutions include hardware and software that’s capable of tracking both humidity and temperature-sensitive products.


  • Temperature data logger
  • Humidity data loggers
  • Temperature data logger with extended probe
  • NFC Android reader
  • NFC USB reader

The wireless sensor measures and records real-time data of the assets and relays the information to users remotely. Using new NFC technology allows a user to track packages across the cold chain and be alerted should any incursion take place. The benefit of cold chain monitoring is that users can receive immediate updates at every junction, receiving reports on the products. The logger would instantly warn a user if the temperature of the product has fluctuated above or below the predetermined temperature range. This means that when transporting products, the cold chain monitoring system can inform you to act before products are damaged.

What is NFC Technology?

NFC – Near Field Communication allows contactless communication between devices like smart phones or other enabled devices. Without any technical installation – with one movement, from anywhere of the world it is now possible to instantly read, send store data and receive alert by e-mail.

Protecting your Pharma Shipments

The Kaye Log NFC Data Logger enables full temperature traceability during the transport of temperature, or temperature/humidity sensitive products. Upon arrival of the package, a go/no go LED (that can be personalized) indicates immediately if the cold chain has been breached. The whole temperature/humidity history can then be directly accessed from any smartphone equipped with the NFC technology along with GPS and shipping information.

For more than 60 years, Kaye has been at the forefront of high accuracy process measurement. Kaye technology has provided the most accurate and user-friendly measuring systems available in the market today.
