Monitoring Devices Protect Multi-Million Dollar Research Projects
Since the 1960s, scientists have been using the zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model organism for studying human genetics and disease. While mice and rats have been common choices for research in the past, the zebrafish offers certain advantages over mammals when modeling human diseases. Zebrafish are transparent in the larval stages, allowing scientists to observe processes like tumor metastasis and blood development in bone marrow transplants. They can also produce hundreds of offspring per week and many thousands over their lifetimes.
Cold Storage Temperature Monitoring System Keeps Medical Products Safe at Bio-Nuclear Dominican Republic
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in the Dominican Republic, Bio-Nuclear manufactures specialized medical devices, equipment, vaccines and chemical reagents. The company developed an innovative molecular biological technique to identify disease-causing viruses and bacteria. They also manufacture devices that collect and conserve stem cells and make supplies for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. The company's customers are government and private sector health services providers.
Healthcare Facility Safeguards Pharmaceuticals to Keep Patients Safe
Patients and healthcare professionals expect the highest quality pharmaceuticals from their hospital system. Failing to store medications according to manufacturers’ instructions can cause efficacy issues when treating patients. Facilities waste thousands of dollars when they have to discard drugs because they weren’t stored properly.
Monitoring Devices Protect the Irreplaceable in Critical Medical Research
Imagine investing years of time, energy and brainwork in medical research, only to have it ruined because the lab’s freezer lost power and its contents were destroyed. Lab managers who are responsible for the viability of research samples can’t leave storing them to chance. As commercial refrigeration expert Brian Barlow knows, a temperature monitoring system is imperative when storing crucial medical products. And it must be a system that can send immediate alerts when problems arise.
