After the Hermes Award now the AMA Innovation Award as well: In 2018, it goes to developers from Endress + Hauser who impressed the jury of business and industry representatives with the iTHERM TrustSens thermometer. The self-calibrating thermometer has been specially developed for hygienic and aseptic applications in the food industry and the life sciences, which require a complete consistency (audit assurance) with respect to the FDA, IFS, and GMP rules. The Heartbeat Technology also enables constant device diagnostics and verification without interrupting the process.
