Why do ultra-low freezers need temperature monitors?

Ultra-low freezers that operate in the -50°C to -80°C range need temperature monitors because of their immense value for the modern lab, hospital or research facility. These facilities use the freezers for the safe long term storage of enzymes, drugs and biological specimens (including vaccines). A single ultra-low freezer can store samples worth tens of thousands of dollars, so you can do the math as to the potential financial loss incurred by even the slightest temperature excursion.

What kind of products are stored in ultra-low freezers?

As mentioned above, labs, hospitals, clinics and medical research facilities (among other institutions) store a combination of enzymes, drugs and other biological specimens (including vaccines) in ultra-low freezers.

Why are ultra-low freezers used for this?

Ultra-low freezers are used to safely store materials that are subject to decomposition, destruction or altered response as a result of exposure to an unspecified temperature. Keeping them safe from damage means constantly monitoring temperatures, to prevent exposure to temperatures outside the safe storage range.

It gives you ample time to intervene and make corrections before catastrophic outcomes even become possible.

Ultra-low freezer probes also need to be made of a specific material that provides stable and consistent readings across a wide range of sub-zero temperatures. All of this has already been taken into consideration by our team, so that you can rely on us for your temperature monitoring and devote your time to your core business every day.
