Sensaphone® Sensor in Glycol-Filled Bottle Ensures Accurate Temperature Reading of Contents in Medical Refrigerators and Freezers

ASTON, Pa., February 21, 2018 – Sensaphone® introduces its 2.8K Temperature Sensor in a Glycol-Filled Bottle for medical refrigerators and freezers. This new sensor buffers momentary temperature fluctuations caused by defrost cycles, opening of doors and fans circulating air, ensuring that readings represent the temperature of the unit's contents rather than the ambient air temperature.

Because Sensaphone's Temperature Sensor in Glycol Bottle buffers these fluctuations, it also prevents the monitoring system from issuing nonessential alarms. That's because the glycol slows the response time of the sensor, allowing normal daily operations to occur without triggering an alarm. This sensor in a glycol bottle meets CDC recommendations on thermometers used to monitor the temperature of vaccines stored in medical refrigerators. It is also ideal for use in applications where regulators specifically require a glycol buffer.

The Temperature Sensor in Glycol Bottle can be used with most Sensaphone monitoring systems to measure temperature from -20 °F to 115 °F (-28 °C to 46 °C) and includes 12 feet of wire. It is used to provide 24/7 remote monitoring of unattended freezers and refrigerators in laboratories, hospitals, biopharmaceutical companies, healthcare clinics, blood and tissue banks and pharmacies.

“With this new sensor, personnel can be assured that the temperature reading accurately reflects that of the pharmaceuticals, specimens and research assets stored in the refrigerators or freezers," said Rob Fusco, business development director at Sensaphone. "It helps to ensure the viability of the stored products and to meet internal and external regulatory compliance."
