Risks of Intermittent Environmental Monitoring

In the intricate world of laboratories, blood banks, hospitals, and other temperature-sensitive environments, precision and reliability are paramount. Temperature monitoring is a non-negotiable factor that directly impacts the safety and integrity of critical substances.

Yet all too often, facilities rely on equipment with basic temperature sensors that are relatively inaccurate and prone to either misreading or malfunction. And even when accurate, sensors may not be measuring the temperature across the entire area of the equipment, so it could be cooler in one part and warmer in another. The effect on critical product and inventory can be significant.

These problems are exacerbated if sensor readings are only checked intermittently. Recording a temperature daily or weekly merely gives a snapshot of actual conditions. By the time a problem is discovered, the consequences could be severe, not only in terms of wasted resources, but also by potentially jeopardizing research integrity or patient care.

Intermittent manual monitoring of environmental conditions is prone to error, wastes staff’s time, and delays problem identification. These concerns can be resolved by switching to an automated real-time monitoring system, using advanced wireless sensors that communicate continuously with a cloud-based software platform.
