The Importance of Monitoring Pharmaceutical Storage

Posted on

In order for medications, vaccines, and other pharmaceuticals to remain effective, they require optimal conditions in which they are stored in, cared for, and monitored.

The environment inside pharmaceutical storage locations should be constantly observed. The slightest shift in temperature may consequently change the potency and sterilization.

When monitoring pharmaceuticals, there are several factors involved that may disrupt the overall temperature and humidity change within their storage areas. Examples of factors that need to be taken into consideration include:

  • Amount of light reaching the storage area
  • Ventilation
  • Cleanliness of area
  • Identifying any sources of moisture and air
  • Placement of pharmaceuticals

Understanding these factors and taking precaution to adjust them correctly ensures the success of pharmaceutical storage and distribution as well as assisting in meeting guidelines denoted by regulators such as the Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization.

MadgeTech’s pharmaceutical data loggers offer effective solutions in measuring temperature and humidity for a broad line of applications. Once the monitoring is completed, data can be viewed and downloaded for complete analysis.
