Temperature Monitoring System Acquisitions

September 2021 - Vol.10 No. 8 - Page #12
Category: Temperature Monitoring

The value of medical-grade temperature control and comprehensive temperature monitoring can fade into the background until an unexpected event (such as a power failure), or an expected event (such as a laboratory inspection) brings it to light. As hospital laboratories grow in scope and physical size, tightly maintaining certain temperatures becomes critical to the widespread integrity of blood products, reagents, and other specimens. Further, failure to properly monitor and document temperatures places the lab at risk for significant product and financial losses, not to mention increased regulatory scrutiny. Thus, the investment in a robust temperature management system is essential.

With almost 6 out of 10 (59%) of facilities now using automated temperature monitoring systems (bolstered by strong satisfaction ratings), many facilities are holding off for now on new acquisitions.

Automated temperature monitoring systems enjoy particularly strong ratings. With 98% of users satisfied with their vendor, these systems engender strong customer loyalty.

Several companies, including Cooper-Atkins, Rees Scientific, Thermo Fisher Scientific, SensoScientific, Stanley, and Helmer Scientific, are well represented among the vendor systems in use.

The near future is positive with 70% of facilities planning to implement a new system expecting to do so within the next 3 years.

In addition to Thermo Fisher Scientific and Helmer, several other vendors are being widely considered for system implementations.
