The TempTRIP monitoring process incorporates three basic components—RFID smart cards, RFID reader with optional integrated barcode scanner, and the internet.  In addition to recording time/temperature data points at desired intervals, the TempTRIP system also displays the food’s journey online. Cold chain participants can look at a map and be able to tell at a glance when and where it has been subjected to off-spec temperatures. TempTRIP offers information integration which helps quantify degradation impact.
