Sensitech, a supply chain visibility company and part of Carrier Global Corporation, has purchased the Monitoring Solutions business of Berlinger & Co. AG, a company that specializes in innovative and customized solutions for monitoring temperature-sensitive goods in the pharma and life science, global health, and clinical sectors.1 The deal is expected to close in Q3 2024.

“The acquisition of Berlinger’s monitoring business is an exciting opportunity for Sensitech to expand our portfolio of monitoring solutions for pharma supply chains and accelerate growth in strategically important adjacencies,” said Bhasker Kaushal, VP & general manager, Sensitech and refrigeration aftermarket. “Digitization, sustainability, and automation are transforming pharma supply chains and driving adoption of real-time monitoring and cloud-based solutions.

We look forward to welcoming the Berlinger team to Carrier and Sensitech.”

According to the involved parties, the merger works well as the companies complement each other: Berlinger provides software and hardware solutions that will have the capability of widening Sensitech’s cold chain monitoring product portfolio. One piece of that portfolio is its branded SmartSystem platform that provides modular, real-time, end-to-end monitoring with the help of cloud-based software platform and temperature-monitoring devices; software and analytics that can automate the end-to-end stability and validation process for clinical trials; software and analytics to automate the end-to-end stability and validation process for clinical trials; and fridge-tags for vaccine fridges and refrigerated site-monitoring.

“We are absolutely convinced that Sensitech can successfully further develop our Berlinger & Co. AG business together with its skilled and dedicated employees,” commented Andrea Berlinger, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of the Berlinger Group.

Earlier this year, Sensitech unveiled TempTale GEO X, a state-of-the-art internet of things (IoT) temperature monitoring solution that reportedly fits the need of both the life sciences sector and logistics organizations.2 The service provides a validated, GxP-compliant solution to monitor temperature-sensitive medicines and vaccines transported globally across different modes, such as air, ocean, rail and road.

It offers real-time location visibility, monitoring temperatures from -95°C to 55°C, global connectivity flight compliance, a screen to display live product quality information, and built-in battery management. When combined with its branded SensiWatch platform and Lynx Logix digital solution, TempTale GEO X has the capability of providing real-time data and analytics for automation of product accept-reject decisions shipment visibility and alerting.

“The TempTale GEO X solution will help transform the pharmaceutical supply chain through real-time data, intelligent workflow automation and advanced analytics,” said Bhasker Kaushal, VP & general manager, Sensitech. “We are constantly innovating to provide real-time monitoring and analytics solutions that make pharma supply chains more connected, automated, resilient and sustainable.
