Improved Vaccine Refrigerator & Freezer with Temperature MonitoringJune 21st, 2010
Stringent requirements for pharmaceutical and vaccine storage cover not only storage temperatures but also ongoing temperature monitoring. Undercounter lab refrigerators and undercounter lab freezers by Nor-Lake Scientific and available from Tovatech have recently been upgraded with new features to meet these requirements.
Two examples are the 4 cu.ft. and 5 cu.ft. auto-defrost laboratory refrigerators, both newly equipped with microprocessor temperature controllers and LED displays. The undercounter lab refrigerator can be controlled from 2˚ to 10˚ C (35.6˚ – 50˚F). The set temperature is displayed, and should temperatures vary outside the set temperature audio and visual alarms sound. As an added feature the units can be connected to a remote alarm system to alert personnel working in other lab locations.
A third model is an undercounter manual defrost laboratory freezer for storing frozen vaccines that should not be kept in auto-defrost freezers. This vaccine freezer has an optional sealable 1-inch sensor port to provide a means of connection between the internal thermocouple and external display module. Because of this there is no need to run thermocouple wiring behind the door gasket. It too can be connected to remote alarm systems.
All three models have lockable doors to comply with JCAHO regulations.
Complementing the existing line of Nor-Lake refrigerators and freezers these three undercounter models further enable laboratories and healthcare facilities to meet recommended pharmaceutical and vaccine storage requirements.
What procedures does your laboratory or healthcare facility follow for the storage and monitoring of pharmaceuticals and vaccines?
