Research & Laboratory Monitoring for Compliance
Research laboratories are adopting centralized remote monitoring systems to protect research samples and cultures, given their inherent monetary and educational value. Remote monitoring is best used as a proactive safeguard as part of a larger quality control initiative to meet compliance for the CDC, CLIA, and the NIH.
The combination of plug-and-play wireless sensors, cellular technologies, compliance reports, audit trails and timely alerts via text message and automated phone calls equate to a complete and integrated monitoring solution for research labs. Laboratory managers have a responsibility to investigate remote monitoring technology, especially to weigh the benefits of a proactive, automated monitoring approach against the current manual logging standards.
