3M™ MonitorMark™ Time/Temperature Indicators monitor products for temperature fluctuations through the entire supply chain. They provide a non-reversible record of temperatures that are accurate and easy to interpret.

3M™ MonitorMark™ Time/Temperature Indicators are available in a variety of time and temperature ranges, and are used to monitor the cold chain for perishable food products, vaccines, blood and many other applications.

Product Construction
• Rectangular, flat laminate with layers of paper, film, adhesive and other components
• Blue compound, run-out to estimate how long the product was above the threshold temperature
• Removable film activation strip
• Pressure-sensitive adhesive that bonds to almost all clean and dry surfaces


Uses
• Monitoring temperatures of temperature-sensitive products during transportation and storage such as frozen or refrigerated foods, drugs, vaccines, medical diagnostic kits, blood, blood products, and intraocular lenses
• Typically placed inside insulated shipping boxes near temperature sensitive products
• The indicators monitor temperature exposure, not product quality. Their purpose is to signal when product quality should be checked due to temperature fluctuations
