OneVue Sense from Primex

Primex OneVue Sense temperature monitoring solutions help ensure the safety of valuable assets, including COVID-19 vaccines, using two NIST-traceable temperature probes. The standard probe monitors the temperature from -40°F to 221°F (-40°C to 105°C), while the cryogenic probe monitors temperatures as low as -328°F (-200°C). If a fluctuation in a storage unit temperature occurs, users will receive audible and visual notifications, as well as real-time email, phone, or text alerts, ensuring prompt action.

In addition to the peace of mind in knowing that assets are stored at correct temperatures, OneVue helps complete compliance tasks as well. With automatic logging, the system documents the first date of use, logs routine temperature checks, and stores data for easy audit reporting. In addition to temperature monitors, the OneVue Sense portfolio offers an array of monitoring solutions, including temperature and humidity sensors that feature the same alerting and data logging capabilities to monitor indoor air quality. The sensors are designed to be easy to install and relocate and use AC or PoE for power and feature standard battery backup.

Stat Temp from Health Care Logistics

Stat Temp from Health Care Logistics is a mobile friendly, WiFi-enabled temperature monitor offering unlimited readings with a user-selected logging rate from once-a-minute to once every 30 minutes. Portals can be created on the Stat Temp website and users can choose to view all units being monitored, or sort to groups by location. Compatible with 2.4 GHz WiFi networks, the unit can be added to the Stat Temp website so that the sensor will appear on the user portal when plugged into the monitor.

Cloud-based storage is unlimited and allows instant access to reports for process improvement, compliance, or inspection, and users can link any number of monitors to their portals. User-defined permissions can be set, based on shifts or roles. Real-time and user-defined alerts can be sent via text, email, or phone call with a forced acknowledgment function. The system uses a pass-through plug that inserts into the same wall outlet as the cooling unit and has a three-day battery backup. CDC compliant, Stat Temp provides min/max data for the previous 24 hours and has a temperature range of -20°C to 50°C (-4°F to 122°F). It includes one glycol sensor, but double sensor and room and air humidity sensor models also are available.
