As part of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Modernization Act in 2003, 21 CFR Part 11 was created as a criteria under which FDA considers electronic records to be trustworthy, reliable, and equivalent to paper records and handwritten signatures.

Laboratory conditions call for very precise temperatures. For this reason, a finely tuned temperature monitoring system is one of the most important tools for a lab. A failure at a lab can often mean that life-saving vaccines get compromised or years of research get destroyed. Unlike other industries, you can’t often put a price-tag on a failure at a lab. E-Control Systems can help automate all of your laboratory temperature requirements, including, 4 °C Refrigerators, -20 °C Freezers, -80 °C Ultra Low Temperature Freezers, -200 °C Liquid Nitrogen Freezers, Incubators, as well as humidity and room pressure differential. Also, E-Control Systems enables you to collect FDA required data by simplifying 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. Don’t let time and money go to waste, make sure you have a wireless temperature monitoring system that you can rely on.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is one of the oldest physical science laboratories in the nation. It was established in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is responsible for developing and maintaining many standards, including the U.S. national standards for temperature. They have designed a system of calibrating thermometers and temperature probes, so that they are “traceable” back to NIST. According to the NIST government website, “traceability can be defined as an unbroken record of documentation…or an unbroken chain of measurements and associated uncertainties.” In order to establish and maintain traceability, a thermometer’s readings must either be compared to a fixed-point temperature, such as the melting point of ice, or a “reference” thermometer at a fixed temperature. This process is also called verification, or calibration. Once the thermometer is calibrated and thereby authenticated, it can be used as a reference to establish traceability for other thermometers. “This process can be continued, providing an unbroken chain of measurements from the final thermometer all the way back to the NIST standards.“

With so many different requirements that must be followed with regards to temperature monitoring, including HACCP requirements, The Joint Commission, and AABB, people are investing in automated temperature monitoring systems. Done are the days of manually taking temperature readings, writing the results on a piece of paper, and filing that paper away in a filing cabinet for years. Today, there are systems that allow you to monitor your entire operation at any time and from anywhere in the world. A system failure can cost a company hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory, but sometimes the loss is much greater than just a monetary value. A loss at a research laboratory/hospital can cause years of valuable research to go to waste. One of the most devastating system failures in recent times happened at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital. That failure caused the world’s largest collection of autism brain samples to lose approximately 1/3 of their samples. This loss is said to have set autism research back by years and possibly even a decade.

According to the CDC, about one in six people in the United States will get food poisoning this year. This amounts to 48 million people. Out of these people, 128,000 will be hospitalized and approximately 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. Severe cases of food poisoning can also cause: kidney failure, chronic arthritis, brain and nerve damage. You can follow four simple steps to make sure that you don’t fall victim to food poisoning. These steps are: Clean, Separate, Cook, and Chill.
