Quality test results require that accurate temperatures be maintained and documented to ensure the proper functioning of test procedures and storage of reagents/specimens. In October the NHVDL implemented a new system of wireless data loggers for all our temperature monitored equipment such as refrigerators, incubators and walk-in coolers. This replaces the older, more labor intensive QC method of recording the temperature readings on paper. This new system continuously collects data throughout the day and automatically sends alerts to our email and phones the moment a temperature falls outside of the designated range. We’re excited about what this new technology adds to our overall quality assurance program and how continuous improvements such as this help us provide a greater service to our clients.
