This comparison has been made to help you find the right equipment whether you work in a laboratory, pharmacy, transport company or within the food sector.
In this post, we will compare Eupry’s data loggers with a popular data logger from ELPRO: The LIBERO TI1 USB data logger.
ELPRO is based in Switzerland and is specialised in monitoring solutions and data loggers, especially for cold chain storage in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector.

- If you have other needs than temperature logging, you should go for a USB data logger from ELPRO.
To ensure temperature loggers accuracy and reliability regular inspections are crucial. Most data loggers on the market do not include a calibration service, meaning that each year customers will have to use their supplier or a third party to ensure that their devices are calibrated. If a user forgets or miss the annual calibration deadline, there is a risk of reduction in accuracy and reliability, or more crucial deviations from the quality system. This could potentially lead to non-compliance with GDP (Good Distribution Practices) if the company is working within the food or pharmaceutical industries.
If a calibration service is not included, the customer would typically have to pay 70-90€ per USB data logger for a standard calibration. This is an annual spend that is often forgotten when different data logger solutions are compared. Furthermore, the process can take up to 4-8 days, during which customers will have to arrange alternative solutions, e.g. by having spare data loggers in place.
Eupry’s customers will not have to worry about calibration deadlines because Eupry is based on a subscription-service concept where data loggers will be replaced with new, calibrated loggers once a year. This annual service is included in the premium and standard subscription fee. In the standard subscription, this service is limited to three data loggers per year.
Furthermore, with Eupry the data loggers are calibrated in a state-of-the art calibration laboratory using systematic and validated procedures. The laboratory is accredited according to the internationally recognised ISO / IEC 17025 standard for calibration laboratories, which is recognised by almost all European countries. Eupry can guarantee highly accurate calibrations, as well as an exceptional level of expertise which is ensured by regular inspections performed by the approved accreditation body, DANAK.
