for Medical Storage
What if you could:
- Automate environmental logging and eliminate manual checks/clipboards
- Receive timely alerts by email, text message, and automated phone call
- Maintain compliance with 6 year logs, incident reports, and NIST management
The medical industry has many complex and strict environmental control processes for temperature, humidity, and other environmental conditions. This applies to, among others, environmental control during pharmaceutical compounding, biologic sample transportation, and storage of vital vaccines and blood samples. Many organizations in these sub-verticals have not implemented a fully-automated and intelligent monitoring system to track conditions during production, transportation, and/or storage.
Several regulatory bodies at the state and federal levels routinely audit medical and biopharmaceutical companies to determine compliance. Most regulations require around-the-clock monitoring at a 15 minute interval, and these conditions must be maintained and automatically logged for each cold chain phase. Failure to comply with regulations by the CDC, FDA, VFC, and others can result in damaged reputation and financial losses.

Ensuring GMP in Biotech
In order to maintain Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), biotech companies must guarantee that their products have been maintained in strictly controlled environments. This often requires a significant expense in the implementation and overhead for advanced environmental monitoring systems. Temperature@lert’s Cellular Edition provides this security along with advanced alerting options at a fraction of the cost.
San Diego based Advantar Laboratories Inc. has integrated Temperature@lert’s Cellular Edition into most of their critical freezers, refrigerators, and environmental control chambers for monitoring their business critical inventory of peptides, proteins, and oligonucleotides. The cellular temperature sensors provide Advantar with a cost-effective alarm notification communication system for GMP-compliant controlled temperature systems, which thereby reduces the response time to move temperature sensitive samples to backup storage and/or to repair sample storage cabinets.
John Alaimo, Sr. VP Technical Operations
"Temperature@lert's Cellular Edition is a valuable tool to assure our customers that their materials and samples are protected. We now enjoy the advantages of a networked alarm notification solution that reliably creates and sends alerts at times when our customers' clinical product or long term stability samples may be in danger without expensive implementation and overhead typically associated with other systems."
Worry Free Medicine Cooling
Managing and operating a pediatric clinic involves strict attention to detail. One of the most important aspects of managing day-to-day operations is ensuring that our medical inventory is well supplied and maintained. Many clinics will have millions of dollars invested in their medical inventory. Therefore, it's critical to maintain the integrity and environmental conditions for each individual item to effectively and safely treat patients.
Keokuk County Health Center turned to Temperature@lert for help in monitoring valuable and life-saving inventory. They installed various WiFi devices nearby every refrigerator and freezer that contained either medicine or vaccines. Each temperature probe is placed in a vial of food grade glycol that serves as a buffer to ensure that their storage units are kept at the appropriate temperatures. If any temperature excursion occurs, KCHC's IT team goes directly to the site to address the problem.
Matt Ives, CTO
"We purchased Temperature@lert’s WiFi device because of the ease of setup, the cost-effectiveness, and our probe locations. We do not have space for a laptop at every refrigerator and our wireless setup is secure so that our temperature information is safe. It is easier for us to check the temperature over the wireless network. We now send nightly temperature alerts via email to all of those monitoring the temperature of our medicines. My experience with your product has been amazing. Customer service has been extremely helpful and they are always willing to fix bugs or help us rewrite some code. We foresee purchasing more WiFi devices from Temperature@lert and have been recommending your device to other clinics in the United States."
H1N1 needs our help
H1N1 is spreading quickly and fiercely across the world. Everything is being done in order to best remedy the situation. While demand for drugs like Tami-Flu and vaccines for the flu are at an all time high, supply for each of these products is low. Since supply is low, it is of utmost importance to monitor and protect our current cache of vaccines.
Pediatric Physicians, PC understands this reality all too well. They have recently installed Temperature@lert's cellular device to monitor the refrigeration temperature every 12 hours. They needed a device that would monitor the temperature in a timely fashion with accurate results.

"We are an H1N1 site. Per their contract we are required to record refrigerator temperatures every 12 hours. [It is just] not practical without your device."
