Chronicled, Inc., a San Francisco based technology company, has announced the launch of its secure, smartphone-enabled temperature logging platform which keeps a continuous, secure log of temperature data for heat and cold sensitive items, including crucial pharmaceutical and biologics products. The platform is integrated with disposable uTrust Sense temperature sensors developed in tandem with Chronicled hardware and form factor partners. Users have the option of attesting the data associated with the temperature loggers to a blockchain in order to ensure the immutability of their records.

The platform utilizes credit-card sized, disposable temperature loggers that are adhesive, flexible and can be read by a smartphone. The devices are configurable with a calibration accuracy certificate of 0.3*C to 0.5*C and with NIST and CFR21 R11 compliance letters in progress. The compact size and flexibility of the temperature logger allows it to follow an item through multiple stages of a supply chain. Smartphone compatibility also eliminates extra costs associated with purpose-built readers and USB plugins required for larger temperature tracking devices.

Devices are supported by the Chronicled App. The data associated with the temperature loggers is password protected, and administrators can grant different levels of permission to read and write data to different users within their organizations. The platform also offers flexible data modelling to create templates for different classes of shipments, and supports text alerts so that managers can receive and respond to temperature fluctuations in real time.

Temperature loggers developed by Chronicled and its partners mitigate problems in supply chains by tracking an item through all points in the chain by immediately alerting supervisors to any deviation from the required temperature range; and by eliminating any reliance on the trust of an individual or central database through a secure decentralized data record.

CEO of Chronicled, Ryan Orr commented: “We are very excited to offer the temperature logger at both a higher level of security and lower price point than has been available in the past. This product should go a long way toward securing our customers’ products, and providing the pharmacist, doctor, and end consumer with peace of mind.”

Chronicled is building an end-to-end secure supply chain platform with the goal of supporting various types of IoT hardware, identities, and data. Other solutions include secure CryptoSeals for sealing containers or documents, supply chain event logging adapters for regulatory compliance, and other forms of IoT-enabled data loggers on the roadmap.
