Automatic Clinical Laboratory Environmental Monitoring

Continuously track and control environmental conditions to ensure the integrity of your clinical specimens - directly impacting your testing quality, performance and bottom line

Eliminate the need to take continuous manual measurements

CenTrak's laboratory environmental and temperature monitoring provides real-time insight into the conditions of diagnostic samples and test results located in clinical laboratories. Automatic alerting for out of range temperatures helps to identify potential avenues for improper storage, enabling staff to correct issues before spoilage occurs.

Clinical Lab - Problem

Don’t let improper manual reporting slow you down or compromise results

Manually recording refrigeration temperatures and conditions is a time consuming task that leaves room for human error — resulting in inconsistent data and inaccuracies.

Automated Monitoring - Solution

CenTrak’s automated temperature monitoring solution ensures accuracy and reliability

CenTrak's temperature and environmental monitoring solution is the most accurate temperature monitoring system and can preserve important reagent and time sensitive test results.

Automating this process has saved us an estimate of $300,000 per year in manual labor.

The data you need without all the overhead

CenTrak’s wireless, real-time environmental monitoring system notifies staff when conditions are sensed below or above user-set parameters. Our environmental monitoring software also offers robust graph, alert, and report views, enabling your facility to take immediate corrective actions on sensors, view and analyze data, and effortlessly pull compliance reports.

  • Temperature Sensors
    EM - Temp Sensor

    Keep the right temperature & eliminate manual measurements

    CenTrak’s LCD-display Temperature Sensor enables a cost-effective mechanism to measure the conditions of refrigerators, freezers, and other storage areas for various temperature measurements. Dual-port capabilities for dual-zone monitoring (-200 ºC to +125 ºC range with selected probes) or single-zone with optional door sensor. CenTrak provides 30 days of measurement data storage for retrieval in the event of a power or network outage. The sensor's reporting & measurement rates are configurable (5 to 60 minutes) and the device is equipped with a 2-year battery life. Multiple buffer types and probe lengths are available to suit a variety of needs in your clinical laboratories.

  • Ambient Temperature & Humidity Sensors

    Protect and maintain your critical lab materials

    Ensure correct ambient temperatures (0 °C to 70 °C) and relative humidity (10% to 90% RH) levels in environmentally controlled rooms or areas. CenTrak's ambient temperature and humidity sensors are equipped with a 2-year battery life and low-battery alert feature. Reporting & measurement rates are configurable in 5- to 60-minute intervals and 30-days worth of measurement data is automatically stored for retrieval in the event of a power or network outage. The built-in LCD display allows for immediate temperature viewing, alarms, and local alert settings and the sensor's certified 2-year calibration ensures measurement accuracy.

    This sensor is also used for:
  • Real-Time Alerting
    EM - Real-Time Alerting

    Generate compliance reports without increasing manual labor

    Alert notifications are based on sensing value, device status (probe disconnect, door ajar, low battery), and process breakdowns. Real-time alerts and customizable escalation chains enable staff to take immediate action when conditions fall outside of safe parameters. When an alarm is triggered, the corrective action performed is logged in the system for sensor and alert management. With an integration to Active Directory, notifications can be properly routed based on user permissions and staff scheduling. Quickly configure hundreds of sensors, users, and alerts through a simple import/export tool. Alerts are sent via:

    • Email
    • SMS/MMS
    • Alarm, Lights, Strobes
    • Phone Calls
  • Regulatory Reporting
    EM - Regulatory Reporting

    Generate compliance reports without increasing manual labor

    The system generates a variety of automated compliance reports and sensor history audit logs, based on individual devices or a customized grouping (i.e., departmental views). Automated environmental monitoring solutions for healthcare eliminate the need for costly manual documentation and the potential for human error.

    EM - How it Works

    The right tech for the job

    CenTrak's Environmental Monitoring technology for healthcare provides a scalable solution for fully wireless deployments. The environmental monitoring sensors and suite of solutions operate under various network configurations, such as Active UHF (i.e., 900 MHz) and/or Wi-Fi (Cisco CCX, Aruba ACX, UDP) including support for WPA2 Enterprise deployments. Sensors are fully configurable in the field and support over-the-air firmware upgrades. BLE connectivity is also available for simple setup.

  • NIST Certification Services
    EM - NIST

    Ensure Measurement Accuracy and Regulatory Compliance

    CenTrak adheres to ISO-17025 quality protocols and each probe and sensor are NIST certified and documented before shipment. Certificates are stored electronically in the environmental monitoring software, where re-certification alerts are also available. NIST services can be provided by CenTrak or one of our certified partners.
