Temperature Mapping

UKAS Accredited ISO 17025 Temperature Mapping

Hospital laboratories, pharmacies, life science and distribution organisations are required to carry out temperature mapping of storage equipment and areas upon commission and on a periodic basis, in line with regulatory requirements and good practice guidelines.

Temperature mapping highlights temperature variations of equipment and areas over time and may inform the choice of continuous monitoring system probe positions in addition to informing any risk based corrective actions.

Factors such as seasonal weather variation, stock levels and movement and door open status can impact the performance and efficiency of temperature-controlled equipment and areas.
