Abstract
A DEVICE FOR MONITORING TIME TEMPERATURE HISTORY IS PROPOSED. THE SENSING COMPONENT OF THE DEVICE, UNLIKE OTHER COMPETING SENSORS, DOES NOT REQUIRE ELECTRONIC DATA RECOVERY OR HAVE A NARROW TEMPERATURE RANGE OF OPERATION. THE SENSOR FUNCTIONS BY USE OF A PROPRIETARY CHEMICAL REACTION TO STORE DATA OPTICALLY. THE COLOR CHANGE CAN BE READ VISIBLY BY AN INDIVIDUAL FOR QUALITATIVE RESULTS AND SUBSEQUENTLY READ BY A STANDARD LABORATORY SPECTROPHOTOMETER FOR QUANTITATIVE RESULTS. THE PROPOSED DEVICE IS POTENTIALLY VERY LOW COST AND SMALL IN SIZE.
