Temperature monitoring of laboratory samples

Secure Data Monitoring & Transport


With Tec4med's solutions for laboratory temperature monitoring of samples, you can store and transport patient samples safely and reliably. While maintaining and controlling the temperature thanks to GxP-compliant data loggers, we guarantee the safety of blood, tissue, and smear samples, among others. With the help of the cloud and app, you receive automatic (temperature) protocols and can follow the recorded data live. Learn more

The challenges for laboratory temperature monitoring systems

Temperature monitoring of sensitive goods in labs usually entails a high cost and safety risk. For pharmaceutical and medical products, but also for chemicals and samples, the shelf life and usability are often only guaranteed at certain temperature ranges and physical conditions. Monitoring of the products or chemical components over the entire period from transport to use is indispensable in many cases.

Inadequate laboratory temperature monitoring of the cold chain can render entire investigations useless. Especially the highly sensitive samples can be damaged or lose their effect even by slight temperature fluctuations, e.g. when the cold chain is exceeded or undercut.

The solution: Laboratory temperature monitoring system 

The SmartHub serves as a Gateway for data loggers and can be attached to boxes-, pallets-, or a central location in the laboratory. It reads out all data loggers nearby automatically and sends the measured data to the Cloud. E.g. temperature excursions are made aware by alarms. All Tec4med Beacons include automatic data-logging, eliminating the need for manual temperature checks, and creating a compliant wireless monitoring system. Easy to retrieve laboratory freezer monitoring data logs help maintain regulations and ensure compliance.

In order to maintain and document, Tec4Cloud offers regular protocols (PDF-format) for your transport of samples, medicines, and chemicals. These are recorded using the SmartBeacon data logger or SmartHub (for temperature, humidity, position, and shock). You can also track all devices connected to the cloud in real-time at any time via app or browser or at the SmartHub's display.

Our Shippers are specially designed for the transport of medical products and offer sensitive goods perfect protection against external influences. Of course, the transport boxes ensure that the cold chain is safely maintained, even in summer (ISTA, AFNOR).

FAQ

Tec4med provides data loggers to measure almost any environmental condition. Especially the Beacons can be used in refrigerators, freezers, ultra-low freezers, LN2 (liquid nitrogen) tanks, cold rooms, clean rooms, -78 dry ice fridges, thermal chambers, and incubators.

In addition, it is a good idea to send the beacons with any shipment. This way you can be sure that the temperature is maintained even when the goods are shipped.

The sensors can be supplied with full DakkS traceable calibration certificates from our in-house calibration laboratory. The calicration standards equal ISO:17025

Our Tec4Cloud system includes an analytical charting tool that allows you to compare measured data. With the exclusive "Site Manager" you can also set thresholds for specific areas. This allows for building a systematic data measurement in your laboratory.

All data can be exported to a PDF protocol.

The Beacon data loggers from Tec4med are not only suitable for use in laboratories but also for transport throughout the entire logistics chain. They come in robust plastic housings and are IP55 protected. The sensors are calibrated against ISO:17025 standards and therefore suitable for laboratories.

Yes, the laboratory monitoring system from Tec4med also offers excellent coverage for low-temperature areas such as freezers, and ultra-low chambers. The Beacon data loggers can be extended with suitable probes. For example, the common temperature ranges of dry ice (-78°C) and liquid nitrogen (-196°C) are also easily possible.

The basic functions of Tec4Cloud are free of charge. You receive access to the cloud with the laboratory monitoring devices.

No installation is necessary for the software. You can access your data from any smartphone, tablet, or PC using a standard web browser.
