Healthcare – Fridge Temperature Monitoring

The healthcare industry relies heavily on fridge temperature monitoring, and must comply with monitoring legislation. When fridge temperatures fail, healthcare samples can be damaged or lost. A simple mistake, such as a fridge door afar when monitoring, is enough to permanently corrupt valuable samples, therefore it is essential to have fridge temperature monitoring in place.

 

Fridge Temperature Monitoring

Sample testing in the healthcare industry needs to be treated with a great deal of care, and temperature monitoring is essential to maintain the integrity of samples and give accurate results. Blood bank temperature monitoring and fridge temperature monitoring are all a part of temperature monitoring, and data must be updated and recorded at all times. Professionals must be aware of any immediate deviances in the set parameters. Any small error such as a fridge door ajar when monitoring, will cause a significant drop in temperature, and must be detected at once.

 

Blood Bank Temperature Monitoring

Blood samples must be kept at a specific temperature in order to give accurate results, and to avoid infection risks. Blood bank temperature monitoring must be implemented at all times in compliance with regulations, and failure to undertake blood bank temperature monitoring could cause serious health risks.

 

Laboratory Temperature Monitoring

Laboratory temperature monitoring is essential for controlled storage and testing environments. The healthcare sector requires laboratory temperature monitoring to maintain valuable blood and tissue samples, medicines and vaccines. If temperatures fail it can cause irrevocable damage to samples and goods, therefore consistent lab temperature monitoring must be implemented to alert staff to any temperature discrepancies, and avoid sample wastage and the loss of important test results.

 

Laboratory Temperature Monitoring for Pharmaceutical Storage

Pharmaceutical storage in laboratories and hospitals commonly consists of fridges and freezers, which are inexpensive to keep and easy to obtain. Pharmaceutical storage needs to be monitored at all times to maintain the integrity of samples, products and test results, and lab temperature monitoring is used to keep a constant and up to date record of fridge and freezer temperatures. Previously lab temperature monitoring consisted of a piece of paper stuck to the side of the fridge for manual monitoring at regular intervals, however this no longer complies with healthcare regulations, which stipulate that pharmaceutical storage must be monitored 24 hours a day seven days a week.

 

Cold Chain Monitoring

A cold chain is the storage and distribution of products and goods, maintained at a set temperature level. In the healthcare industry cold chain monitoring ensures that medicines, samples and vaccines are kept at the required temperature level during pharmaceutical storage and whilst in transit. Cold chain monitoring is particularly important for vaccines being distributed to hot climate countries, and the transport of blood transfusions and organs for medical procedures. All drugs and biological products must adhere to the Goods Manufacturing Process (GMP), which is enforced by healthcare regulations. In other words cold chain monitoring must be implemented throughout transport and pharmaceutical storage to protect the safety and efficacy of the product.

 

Measuring and Validation – the USB data logger

Pharmaceutical goods and samples are measured, controlled and validated during lab temperature monitoring and transportation using data logging. The set parameters are closely measured by technology to continuously record temperature levels and insure their safety.

 

At Kelsius the wireless temperature monitoring system uses a USB data logger to record and monitor all activity during storage and transit, and will alert staff immediately to any discrepancies. The USB data logger works by a series of sensors connected to your monitoring system and to the internet via your local area network.

 

Kelsius have portable sensors for cold chain monitoring, also connected to the internet via the USB data logger, and all information is accessible online 24/7. The benefit of the USB data logger is highly efficient lab temperature monitoring and cold chain monitoring processed online through user friendly reports, which alleviate time consuming paper trails and data records. The USB data logger also keeps an audit trail of all activity and corrective actions during lab temperature monitoring and cold chain monitoring.
