Dedicated to Improving Global Health.
Temptime Corporation is deeply committed to improving global public health. For nearly 30 years, our temperature monitoring devices have helped healthcare workers immunize millions of children around the world and extend care to regions previously thought to be unreachable.
Founded in 1987, Temptime scientists developed the first miniaturized technology to monitor temperature exposure of vials containing the oral polio vaccine. This time-temperature monitoring device continues to be the only technology that meets the strict specifications of the world’s leading health organization for distributing vaccines to developing countries. It satisfies the World Health Organization’s (WHO) PQS VVM performance specification, and we follow WHO’s guidelines for manufacturers of temperature monitoring devices.
Today, pharmaceutical corporations, biotechnology companies and hospitals are using our devices to help improve the storage and handling of hundreds of medical products by visually identifying when a temperature excursion has occurred. We are honored to serve these organizations and contribute to improving the health of people around the world. Temptime is dedicated to continually developing new technologies that will meaningfully improve global health for years to come.
Temptime’s leaders uphold the utmost integrity and work tirelessly as a network, unified in the desire to promote and improve global public health and better patient outcomes.
