Many laboratories and pharmaceutical companies are facing significant challenges with reducing waste or spoilage and accurately recording storage temperatures. Most have no way of knowing if the power goes out or a cooler/freezer fails after hours. That is where the Intenet of Things comes in.
The Internet of Things (IoT): the network of physical objects ("things") embeded with sensors, softwares, electronics and network connectivitiy which enables them to collect and exchange data." continue reading>>
One siginficnat area that connected sensors is improving, is sample temperature monitoring during shipping. Utilising temperature sensors inside of transportation coolers allows companies to track and record temperature data while in transit by using cellular connection. The temperature data can be accessed through secure online software from anywhere in the world and near-real-time. This capability allows managment to correct issues as they occur, preventing samples from being spoiled or compromised." continue reading>>
