New PQS Configurations ready on all Fridge-tags

The WHO PQS Standard TR06.4 defines three types of standard configurations of 30DTR:

  • Type 1: Capable to monitor and programmed with alarm settings suitable for monitoring vaccine refrigerators at +2 to +8°C.
  • Type 2: Capable to monitor and programmed with alarm settings suitable for monitoring vaccine freezers at -15 to -25°C.
  • Type 3: Capable to monitor and programmed with alarm settings suitable for monitoring vaccine ultra-low temperatures at -70 to -80°C.

All three Types of configurations are now standardly available on all Berlinger Fridge-tags (2, 2E, 2L and Ultra Low).

Each of the configurations have their own colour label:

  • Type 1: Yellow label, vaccine refrigerators at +2 to +8°C. Low alarm -0.5°C or below for 60min; high alarm +8°C or above for 10 hours.
  • Type 2: White label,  vaccine freezers at -15 to -25°C. Low alarm -25°C or below for 60min; high alarm -15°C or above for 60min.
  • Type 3: Blue label, vaccine ultra-low at -70 to -80°C. Low alarm -90°C or below for 60min; high alarm -60°C or above for 60min.

For Type 2 and Type 3 configurations, an external sensor has to be used due to the low temperatures.

For Type 1 configurations, an external can be used, at the preference of the user.

The following options are therefore possible:

The new configurations are immediately available, simply mention clearly on the order which Type of configuration is needed.

All Types of configurations and all Fridge-tags are 'validated compatible' with the Varo-app (the free smartphone app that collects and forwards useful cold chain information)
