Website updates and new site for the USA on its way

The last few weeks have been pretty busy here at Temperature Indicators. We’ve been busy upgrading our UK based website so that the software behind the scenes is completely up to date. This enables us to provide a good service selling a comprehensive range of temperature indicator thermometer labels, medical sterilisation and contamination indicators and food processing indicators. Whilst that has been going on we’ve also decided to invest in a website solely focused on the USA market, that will provide thermometer labels to industry. We’re busy building that and hope to launch it this summer.

We also have been supplying the SteriTec Retort Check and Air Check food canning batch processing indicator tags to our US customers for many years now. These are indicators made of strong, moisture resistant card that are used in a variety of canned food processes where a static retort is used. The ink used on the Retort Check tags will only change colour if the correct combination of time, temperature and steam (of a sufficient quality) is present in the retort. The Air Check tags are used when the process demands the use of small quantities of air to pressurise the retort vessel, usually a Lagarde system.

Over the last 2-3 years we’ve seen a big increase in business in the USA and we realised last year that the time was right to set up a new company to focus on providing the best possible service to our US customers. Our intention is to provide an online presence that will allow customers in the food processing sectors in the USA, Central America and South America to order online, check pricing and quantity discounts and to benefit from special offers, such as promotions and free delivery offers on our unique range of food processing indicators. We’re busy building that website and we hope that you’ll check it out. The software we’re using is right up to date and should enable us to list products through amazon, eBay and others whilst still providing a very high quality service to our long standing account customers who buy in volume.

All shipments will be from our new warehouse facility in California and we’re shipping orders with FedEx to ensure a prompt and reliable delivery to our customers.

As you can imagine, we want to get things right from the outset, so building the site will take a little time, but we’ll post an update when we’re at the testing stage.

Sterilisation Indicators

Do you buy sterilisation indicators?

Temperature Indicators is a distributor of the SteriTec range of time/temperature medical sterilisation indicators made in the U.S.

What we aim to do is provide a functionally superior product at a lower price. Our products meet the relevant ISO, and AAMI requirements for medical indicators and SteriTec staff sit on 7 of the committees that set those standards.

To date, we have been able to provide every one of our customers with some serious cost savings. In some cases that’s been up to 60% on regular items like Bowie Dick test packs which we offer in several varieties, from single use packs to some innovative reusable systems, a good way to reduce expenditure.

We also supply an extremely accurate and reliable range of intelligent indicators that can be used for sterilisation assurance for daily tests, load tests and individual packs.

If you want autoclave tape, we sell a very high quality tape manufactured in Canada. This isn’t the low quality, cheap Chinese tape a lot of the European distributors are selling to make a bit more profit in difficult times, it’s an extremely high quality lead and latex free tape at a very good price. Please call us with your current cost and we’ll try and beat it.

We have huge stocks available to ship immediately, and we offer further savings for bulk orders. The most you’ll ever wait for a delivery is a week if we have to ship something in from the SteriTec manufacturing facility in Colorado.

You probably haven’t heard of us, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give us a try. As an independent, family run British company, we’ve been supplying every one of the world’s biggest food manufacturers with sterility assurance products since the day we started. It’s likely that you take home a product checked with a TI indicator every time you do your food shopping.

We take pride in what we do and we are able to offer great prices by keeping our costs low, by not printing big glossy catalogues and by ensuring that we look after our customers. Many of our customers from the 1980s are still dealing with us today, and that makes us very proud.

We’ve been around over 25 years and we’ve a lot of experience to draw upon. Our website has full product information and you can even order safely online. Full technical information and certification is available for download and you can call or email us any time if you have a technical query. You’ll usually have not only a response but also an answer to your question within 24 hours. Orders are processed promptly and we offer credit accounts to all UK medical establishments, NHS or private.

Steris to stop selling Hydrogen Peroxide Indicator

We’ve learnt today that Steris are discontinuing their Hydrogen Peroxide indicator product.

As this is a widely used medical sterilisation indicator, a number of organisations have been in touch to ask if we can supply an equivalent product. That product is the SteriTec Cross Check P, and can be found here:

Cross Checks P

Steritec Cross-Checks P indicator

Please note that Steris and SteriTec are unconnected.

If you have any questions about this product then please email us.
