Cold Chain Testing (QCPP)

An essential component of good pharmacy practice is the correct monitoring of community pharmacy refrigeration to ensure that temperature-sensitive products such as vaccines and insulin are stored at appropriate temperatures. From January 2004, pharmacies wishing to comply with QCPP mandatory standards must have an approved vaccine refrigerator. The Cold Chain Testing Centre will monitor pharmacy refrigerators for compliance with the QCPP standard, using the Thermocron temperature logger .The Thermocron is a tamper-proof, re-programmable computer logger.
