Automated temperature monitoring services for healthcare applications
CoolCheck is an industry-leading wireless automated service that plans the process of temperature monitoring in controlled testing and storage environments in the healthcare sector.
It also alerts staff members when temperatures diverge from set parameters.
The system is compliant with all major international standards, including the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), UK Accreditation Service (UKAS), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA). It also adheres with 21 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 11.
The broad scope of applications includes the monitoring of fridges, freezers, incubators, water baths, liquid nitrogen tanks, oxygen and carbon dioxide, among others.
Safe storage capabilities for pharmaceuticals
The CoolCheck temperature monitoring system complies with industry best practice for safe storage of medicines and vaccines, as well as blood and lab samples, reducing product wastage related to fridge failure.
The solution consists of small wireless sensors placed inside cold storage environments, which communicate to the CoolCheck Network Controller and onto the Internet via a local area network connection.
Web-enabled sensor data transmission and storage
CoolCheck sensors transmit data at regular intervals to Kelsius Server, with information accessed via the Kelsius Web portal, and processed and presented as user-friendly reports in a PDF format. Temperature data is presented in graphical and tabular format, encrypted for complete security.
If a measured temperature goes outside of the set parameters, an alert is triggered instantly via local audio and visual alarm, text message (to any number of staff members), or email. All data and corrective actions are archived to provide a complete audit trail.
