As an indispensable medical material in people's lives, the quality and safety of drugs are very important to our lives and health. Every link from drug research and development, experimentation, production, storage, and sales must be strictly checked. Once a mistake occurs, it may cause irreparable life danger to others. Especially in the process of drug transportation, since my country's cold chain transportation system needs to be improved, the number of professional cold chain vehicles is not enough to meet market demand. Therefore, it must be strictly controlled in the process of drug transportation.
The main disadvantages of the current cold chain transportation of drugs:
1- The cold chain car cannot maintain a continuous low temperature
Common drugs that require cold chain transportation include antibiotics, vitamins, insulin, anti-tumor drugs, and nervous system drugs. These drugs are generally required to be stored and circulated under low temperature conditions of 2°C-8°C to avoid drug failure or deterioration. However, at present, transportation companies are required to use intermittent power supply in order to save costs or to consider the safety of cold chain vehicles. During the transportation process, the deterioration of the medicine cannot be noticed.
2- The transportation of the vehicle is not in good condition, resulting in damage to the drug
For drugs of different dosage forms, special packaging is required during the transportation and distribution process to avoid damage to the drugs resulting in contamination. For example, anti-cancer chemotherapy products have strong toxicity and radioactivity. If during the transportation, the vehicle is in poor transportation condition, and often sharp turns, sudden braking and other behaviors cause the medicine to break, it will cause greater harm to the transportation personnel and the surrounding environment.
3- Lack of real-time monitoring of high-value drugs
During the transportation of drugs, the drug receiver can install environmental monitoring equipment to achieve the function of monitoring the temperature of the cold chain vehicle throughout the process. Including before and during the transportation of the drug. The drug recipient can activate the early warning mechanism by setting the transportation temperature threshold. Once the temperature reaches the threshold, the system will automatically alarm to remind the manager to contact the transportation company to adjust the temperature in time.
2- Vehicle condition monitoring function
For vehicles in the process of driving, there are often sharp turns, sudden braking and other behaviors, resulting in damage to the cargo. For the transportation of drugs, many drugs are packaged in glass and have relatively large radioactivity, and this issue needs to be paid more attention to. Environmental monitoring equipment can monitor the state of the vehicle, first confirm the best transportation route in advance, and confirm the status of the medicine in time when the vehicle encounters collisions, vibrations, etc., to avoid pollution to other medicines.
3- Remove the alarm function
The person in charge only needs to install the environmental monitoring equipment inside the outer box of the medicine. When the outer box is opened, the light sensor of the device will be triggered to trigger the alarm system. Based on this information, cloud management personnel can confirm the status of the drug in time to avoid the theft of the drug.
