CenTrak, a company that develops real time location systems (RTLS) for monitors patients, attendants and equipment in healthcare centers, has unveiled its IT-735 probe-based temperature sensor tag.
The device can be applied as either a standalone solution or with the company’s asset and people-tracking solution.
The system remotely detects and relays data on temperature levels of refrigerators and freezers, making automatic documentation adhere to prescribed regulations. It tracks temperatures from cryogenic -200°C to room temperature +50°C, provides precise and dependable rates down to seconds and 0.50°C precision. It can sound an alarm when the temperature fluctuates from the predetermined parameters. It offers continuous monitoring of temperature, making manual monitoring and potential errors redundant. Since it is a detachable device it can be customized as needed.
The system enhances the security of patients by controlling the temperatures of blood samples and medicines. It is cost-efficient because it reduces the potential risk of blood samples and other products and medication becoming defective due to incorrect temperatures in refrigerators and freezers.
