About : Printable Sensor Code

Background

Due to the regenerative medicine, cells and proteins are required to develop new medicine in pharmaceutical industry.Heat damage changes characteristics of cells and proteins.Temperature management is crucial.

Some listed companies manage temperature in logistics for iPS cells and protein medicine. 

Problem

Other campany developed a temperature sensor tag enabling tractability and temperature management on Sept 2016.This tag has a RFID label with battery monitoring temperature situation.

However,Sensors utilizing battery and circulation have limitation on cost reduction.Since all components are needed, it is difficult to reduce cost less than JPY 300 or USD 3.

Our Proposal

The solution is a color sensor code printed on the package with thermostatic ink.
