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.
Sensaphone Remote Monitoring System Helps Dolphin Research Center improve Safety of Marine Mammals During Rehabilitation
Dolphin Research Center (DRC) in Grassy Key, Florida, needs to make sure pools, food tanks, pumps and other parts of the facility are kept to exact standards required to keep their rescued dolphins and sea lions safe while they are being rehabiliated.
Sure Power Relies on Sensaphone Systems to Ensure Uninterruptible Power Supply for Critical Operations
Sure Power, with operations in Philadelphia and Baltimore, has been providing uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to mission-critical operations for 22 years. The technicians at Sure Power’s UPS Rental are on call for immediate deployment in the event of a power outage, surge or interruption of any kind. They can deliver trailer-mounted UPS systems anywhere in the U.S. within two hours of receiving a call. Gene McNeil, Vice President of Critical Power Systems at UPS Rental, and his crew use Sensaphone remote monitoring systems to alert them of problems with the UPS systems.
Keystone Shipping Monitors Cargo Ships 24/7 While at Port in Lay-Up
David Deltano has been managing fleets of cargo ships for over a decade – in salt and fresh water. Based in Duluth, Minn., as a fleet manager for Keystone Shipping, Deltano is responsible for vessels while they are en route and at port.
Vessels routinely face winter lay-up January through March, as well as lay-up in shipyards for maintenance and tonnage reductions. During these times, they are largely unattended, especially on the weekends, and subject to damage from unexpected incidents like leaks, fires and power outages. A remote monitoring system safeguards the vessels, and the company recently upgraded to Sensaphone systems for additional protection and convenience.
