Abstract Quality and safety of the cold chain undergo strict international regulations that identify storage and shipping temperatures. In fact, the improper handling and transportation of temperature-sensitive products such as food and pharmaceuticals may have harmful effects on human health and a negative economic impact. A passive RFID tag modified with a copper-doped ionic liquid was used to detect the crossing of a temperature threshold (8 °C) during the shipping of medical products. The… 
Capturing and recording cold chain temperature violations through parametric alarm-sensor tags
It is shown that it is finally possible to identify any items along the cold chain whose temperature has exceeded a remotely configurable Tth value as low as −47 °C, even if operating in uncontrolled electromagnetic environments and up to 46 m away from the corresponding PAST outside a line-of-sight.
