Temperature and Humidity Sensors
Wireless sensors for easy installation
Differential Pressure for Sterile Areas
Regulatory requirements and good practice determine that monitoring of your drug storage environment is critical. Many vaccines and drugs require storage between 2°C and 8C (35.6°F to 46.4°F)
AKCP provides a solution for monitoring of temperature sensitive drugs and vaccines during transport and storage. 2x NIST traceable, calibrated temperature sensors are compared for accuracy once a second. Alerts are sent if the sensor is out of calibration.
NIST4 sensors feature 4x temperature sensors working in 6 pair combinations with calibration checks, providing multiple failovers should a pair be out of calibration.
Temperature Monitoring for Pharmaceutical Storage
Pharmaceutical and Laboratory Monitoring
Glycol Temperature Sensor for Medical Refrigerators
It is an industry standard best practice when monitoring the temperature inside medical refrigerators to place the sensor suspended in a jar of Glycol. This simulates the acual temperature of the pharmaceutical liquid and avoids false alarms caused by warm air entering the refrigerator, or fluctuations during the compressor cycles of the refrigerator.
AKCP NIST2 and NIST4 wireless sensors are available with a Glycol Jar attachment for use in laboratories, medical refrigerators and the monitoring of vaccines. The graph below shows a comparison of a sensor exposed to the air temperatures inside the refrigerator (red) and the temperature of the sensor suspended in Glycol (blue). The dampending response is clearly seen, giving a more accurate measure of the temperature of the pharmaceuticals.

Vaccine Cold Chain
The purpose of the vaccine cold chain is to maintain product quality from the production of the product until the point of administration.
AKCP sensorProbe2 monitoring device with dual temperature and humidity sensor installed at the Keck Observatory in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. AKCP's monitoring technology was deployed at the WM Keck Observatory to monitor the humidity at the lasers boresight, constantly monitoring the humidity levels. High humidity at the boresight causes the laser to fail to propagate and the telescope to be down until the laser can be de-fogged.
