Vaccine Storage Temperature Monitoring Solutions from Lascar with the EL-WiFI-VACX

The safe storage of medicines and vaccines isn’t something to be taken lightly. Vaccines are biological substances that may lose their effectiveness quickly or even become potentially dangerous if they are allowed to become too hot or too cold at any time, especially during transport and storage. Vaccines are transported and stored according to a recommended temperature range of +2 to +8 °C until the point of administration, they cannot be frozen and also must be protected from light. If the storage recommendations for vaccines are not accurately followed the manufacturers will disclaim any responsibility for any failures.

Monitoring the Temperature
Every year winter rolls in bringing with it an increase in viruses such as flu which can be a life threatening for those with compromised immune systems, so in the run-up to these colder months people are encouraged to get themselves a flu jab. The storage of vaccines, as mentioned earlier, needs to be carefully monitored, what if there was a power failure and your vaccine storage facilities went offline? When was the power cut, how long were the fridges offline? As vaccines can withstand a short exposure to temperatures beyond their predetermined storage level, without knowing the when and the how you risk having to destroy a batch of expensive vaccines.

As an answer to this expensive and also potentially life threatening scenario, Lascar offers a solution for the accurate temperature measurement of refrigerated vaccine storage and transportation facilities in the form of the dependable EL-WiFI-VACX. This premium WiFi enabled device operates as a remote high-accuracy vaccine temperature monitoring device, features include a large LCD, email alert notification via WiFi, built-in alarm warning light and sounder. This clever device keeps you informed, allowing you to take prompt action to protect those vaccines, such as moving them to another location while maintaining accurate data logging of their temperatures during transit.

The EL-WiFi-VACX allows remote vaccine monitoring and data collection over a WiFi network, viewable from any internet-enabled device via the EasyLog Cloud. With this device you can set-up high and low temperature alarms and receive instant email alerts when the storage temperatures become too hot or cold. The EL-WiFi-VACX stores data internally and if it loses WiFi connection it will automatically upload it to the Cloud once reconnected.

Trustworthy Design
A Glycol-filled temperature probe comes with the EL-WiFi-VACX which has been created to match the temperature response of vaccines in storage, ensuring highly accurate and representative readings. The probe is replaceable, which can be calibrated separately if required, a traceable calibration certificate and a wall mounting bracket are also included. This precision instrument meets and exceeds the CDC standards for vaccine monitoring.

“I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH IT, IF IT WASN’T FOR THOSE MEDDLING DATA LOGGERS!!!”

“I would have gotten away with it, if it wasn’t for those meddling Data Loggers” Next level Data Logging.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With it being Halloween, we were struck by a Ghost Hunting project that we recently read about that has taken place at Motley County Jail, in Matador, Texas.

A case study created by Lance Brooks , founder of Texas Spirit Seekers, used advanced data logging technology from Lascar Electronics to take his hobby of ghost hunting to the next level.

Common theories in ghost hunting or the search for paranormal activity suggest that there will be change in the temperature of a room or environment if any ghostly being or activity is present. This is commonly known as a cold spot. By using the Lascar EL-USB-2 data logger Lance was able to keep a steady log of the temperatures within the jail during the investigation.

Using the Lascar EL-USB-2 Lance recorded not only temperature but also humidity and set the data logger to capture readings every 10 seconds over a 10-hour period. This time, the Lascar data logger proclaimed the jail all clear as they saw no significant fluctuations in temperature and helped scientifically prove the lack of paranormal activity.

But if Ghost Hunting isn’t your thing don’t worry!

Lascar Electronics have a great family of data loggers with a wide range of parameters and connectivity options including USB, Wifi/Cloud, SMS & Bluetooth.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”1913″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Typical day to day uses include vaccine storage, food safety, facilities management, animal welfare and much much more.

Data loggers? How do they work?

A data logger is an electronic device that will record data either constantly or at set intervals over a predetermined period of time. It does this via a built-in sensor or using external instruments. Data Loggers tend to be battery powered allowing them to be used in areas where there may not be a constant supply of electricity, making them ideal for transporting food, vaccines or anything similar which will need to be kept at constant temperature.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/oQlJB1R_7mQ” el_aspect=”235″ align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As a data logger can record information over an extended time period they provide a far more accurate way to monitor temperature and humidity etc. rather than manually taking readings. They can be left for a 24 hour period to collect data and you can then easily upload the gathered information to a computer for evaluation.

Lascar Data loggers offer so much versatility allowing you to record numerous different parameters with many different connectivity options, meaning they are perfect for everything from working in hospitals monitoring medical supplies (Did we mention that they are also CFR-21 compliant?) to being outdoors and assisting in environmental studies.
