BioXTEND® In-Transit Temperature Recorders

The BioXTEND® BXTR Single Use Strip Chart Temperature Recorder is a highly reliable, strip chart time and temperature recording instrument used to record environmental conditions encountered during storage and transportation of food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and other temperature-sensitive commodities in refrigerated trucks, rail cars, ocean and air freight containers.

BioXTEND® Recorders provide maximum accuracy and generate a permanent record of transit conditions on a 91 cm (36 in.) strip chart. A view port allows the operator to visually confirm activation after the startup tab has been pulled. View our instruction guide: How to Read a Chart
