Data loggers are essential temperature monitoring devices for fridges and freezers storing vaccines. We now offer a range of vaccine monitoring kits that follow both CDC and NHS guidelines and that include a digital data logger, a glycol bottle probe and calibration certificate. From Lascar Electronics, these devices are available with USB, WiFi and SMS connectivity.
Excessive exposure to temperatures that are too hot or cold can result in vaccines losing their potency. Continued exposure degrades potency even further and unfortunately it cannot be restored and the vaccine must be destroyed.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends refrigerators storing vaccines MUST be kept between 2ºC and 8ºC (36ºF and 46ºF) and freezers storing vaccines between -50ºC and -15ºC (-58ºF and +5ºF) and recommends the use of a digital data logger to continuously measure temperature of vaccines in storage.
