Saving Vaccines with SensoTech's Breakthrough in Vaccine Temperature Monitoring
Date:3/22/2009

Finally, there is a practical and affordable solution to meet the temperature monitoring requirements for vaccine temperature monitoring. SensoTech, the pioneers of embedded web-based wireless temperature monitoring, now offers a Vaccine Monitoring module.

Simi Valley, CA -- Every year, hundreds of thousands of doses of vaccines are thrown out due to poor refrigeration at clinics, hospitals and doctors' offices, according to the Center for Disease Control. The CDC states that improper storage is the most common cause for loss of vaccine potency and effectiveness.

But an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The solution is clear.
Finally, there is a practical and affordable solution to meet the temperature monitoring requirements for vaccine temperature monitoring. SensoTech, the pioneers of embedded web-based wireless temperature monitoring, now offers a Vaccine Monitoring module.

Vaccines need to be kept at certain temperature ranges to avoid damage and waste. For refrigerated vaccines, this temperature is between +36 to +46°F or +2 to +8°C. For freezer vaccines, this range is 5°F or -15°C and lower. Not following these guidelines can lead to lost dollars due to vaccine waste and the liability of potential health risks in patients.

"We are aware that these are very expensive vaccines they're dealing with and we really want to support them in proper handling and storage. The key is to prevent these things from happening before the damage occurs," said Mike Zarei, Vice President of Business Development for SensoTech. "The best way to do that is through proper and continuous temperature monitoring - and that's where we come in."

Often times, temperatures are logged and nothing is ever done about out of range temperature incidents, according to Zarei. Sometimes employees do not even know that the temperature is out of range. With the continuous monitoring the SensoTech Vaccine Monitoring module provides, an audible alert is heard or an email alert is received when the temperature is out of range, allowing it to be addressed immediately and minimizing costly vaccine damage.

The Indiana Health Department and Clark County Iowa Department of Health have already made the decision to stop vaccine waste before it begins.

These health departments have joined with so many others who have seen the value in improving safety and regulatory compliance, minimizing the costs of wasted vaccines, reducing liability and increasing the health of the community by selecting SensoTech's automated temperature monitoring solution.
