Pharmaceutical temperature monitoring system in Pakistan per GMP?

DRAP (Drug Regulatory Authority) issues guidelines for pharmaceutical temperature monitoring which dictate that controlled drugs and vaccines meet certain criteria for usage to deliver maximum effectiveness and shelf-life.  The pharmaceutical industry as a whole is subject to regular compliance audits ensuring that these guidelines are met and are a part of the regulatory process.

Pharmaceutical Temperature Monitoring for Compliance

A comprehensive regimen of pharmaceutical temperature monitoring and accurate record-keeping is an integral part of the compliance strategy for any facility producing, storing and distributing pharmaceutical products. Manual pharmaceutical temperature monitoring at the level of detail needed is time-consuming and is subject to human error. Often times, qualified resources are tied up in the process.

Following Environmental parameters are considered by GMP that our system addresses

  • Temperature & Humidity of raw material storage rooms
  • Positive pressure maintained in the processing areas
  • Temperature & Humidity of processed products in storage rooms
  • Temperature & Humidity in stability chambers

Environment Monitoring to Manage Financial Risk

When manufacturing and storing pharmaceutical products, your inventory is a potential compliance risk.  Using IoTCloudware Monitoring System gives you the peace of mind that your valuable inventory is fully protected and that in process environmental parameters of each of your batch are adequate.

  • Eliminate Compliance Risk
  • Free Up Valuable Human Resources
  • Protect Invaluable Assets
  • Deliver Return on Investment
