Laboratory Humidity Control Systems
A cloud-based hospital refrigerator (or freezer) temperature monitoring system is an essential tool for most laboratories. An automated monitoring system can help eliminate manual data logging, improve compliance readiness, and protect temperature-sensitive assets.
Manual temperature and humidity data logging can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. With Sonicu’s cloud-based temperature monitoring system (used in refrigerators and freezers), the data-logging process can be automated and monitored remotely in real time.
This can allow laboratory staff to focus on other tasks instead of manually checking temperatures throughout the day. Additionally, it's very easy for employees to make small errors when recording temperature or humidity data. An automated system is usually more accurate and reliable.
Sonicu’s cloud-based monitoring system also helps improve compliance readiness by providing accurate and thorough records that are easily accessible at any time from your computer, phone, or tablet with the SoniCloud platform.
Maintaining these records ensures your organization has evidence that the laboratory is meeting CLIA humidity requirements and other standards related to the storage and handling of temperature-sensitive assets.
Aside from the compliance and Sonicu’s reporting benefits, cloud-based refrigerator, freezer, and Ultra-Low freezer temperature monitoring systems can also help protect temperature-sensitive assets from damage due to extreme temperatures or sudden changes in humidity levels. A Sonicu probe can detect changes in humidity levels so that employees can adjust lab humidity settings accordingly.
Always keep in mind that monitoring systems are not designed to control temperature or humidity, only track them. If you need to adjust the humidity in your lab, you'll need a separate tool like a lab humidifier.
