Remote Monitoring Systems for Laboratory and Pharmaceutical Operations

Gain peace of mind about what’s happening in your biotech facility, laboratory, research center, or pharmaceutical industry operation when you’re not there.

Automatic Laboratory Freezer Monitoring Solutions and More

Be aware as the situation arises, not after the fact.

Put an end to lost research storage and inventory.

Maintaining complex research and development and storage environments can be a major challenge. What happens when one piece of the puzzle breaks down? Just think of the implications if an ultra-cold pharmaceutical lab freezer malfunctions or one fails while transporting and storing the COVID-19 vaccines.

Get real-time lab monitoring system alerts when a situation requires your attention—like if ultralow temperature (ULT) lab freezer or refrigerator storage temperatures rise. Beyond temps, 80+ sensors in our award-winning line create a laboratory monitoring system to watch over many things—including ajar cooler doors, motion after hours, and increased power draw when equipment may need maintenance.

All Monnit Sensors include automatic data-logging, eliminating the need for manual temperature checks and creating a compliant wireless monitoring system. Easy to retrieve laboratory freezer monitoring data logs help maintain regulations and ensure compliance.

Monnit wireless monitoring solutions give you peace of mind without sensor usage fees or pricey monthly subscriptions. Always know your medical storage systems are performing optimally with Monnit Wireless Sensors for remote laboratory monitoring.

Remote Monitoring for Business - How Monnit Works

Sensors to Maintain Control, Compliance, and Your Bottom Line

Keeping lab research & storage systems running smoothly just got a whole lot easier.

An Edge for Your Lab Monitoring System

These Monnit Sensors are ideal for laboratory freezer monitoring systems of any size. Many pharmaceuticals and vaccines require refrigeration between +2°C (+35.6°F) and +8°C (+46.4°F). But the first vaccines to help eliminate COVID-19 must be stored in ultralow temperature freezers, specifically -80°C/-112°F and below. Many labs use the Monnit Low Temperature Sensor for remote pharmaceutical freezer monitoring because it’s capable of monitoring shifts in a temperature range at +/- 0.5°C calibrated accuracy from -200°C to 0°C/-328°F to 32°F). Industry-leading 25-month NIST certification is available on Low Temperature Sensors. Monnit has the devices perfectly equipped for wireless laboratory freezer monitoring and even in the harshest environments.

Fluctuating humidity and pharmaceuticals in labs don't mix. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests maintaining 50% relative humidity (RH), achievable with a Monnit Wireless Humidity Sensor. Equipped to assess the RH percentage with a +/- 3% accuracy (between 10–90% RH) and record the temperature (max range from -40°C/-40°F to 125°C/257°F). If humidity exceeds preset limits, the sensor sends alerts via email, text, or call. Accurate hourly records for labs and remote laboratory freezer monitoring assist in maintaining an optimal atmosphere for life-saving drugs.

Leaks are just as destructive to physical facilities and productivity in a pharmaceutical laboratory as in any other environment. A Wireless Monnit Water Detection Puck around toilets, sinks, boilers, water heaters, and more plumbing—anywhere water might collect—can help mitigate the risk of contamination. With this award-winning sensor, you'll be alerted via text, email, or call to water presence at the first sign of trouble. A Wireless Water Rope Sensor along walkways, walls, and pipes can also detect water and help prevent damage from leaks. Water Sensors are an important part of a comprehensive lab monitoring system.

The Monnit Wireless Digital Temperature Sensor measures temperatures between -40°C (-40°F) and +125°C (+257°F) to support clinical vaccine cold storage and research labs. An easy-to-read digital temperature readout is now available at the push of a button on its LCD, so you can know and instantly record the storage temperature in your lab freezers and refrigerators. This will help you automate pharmaceutical freezer monitoring and data logging. Even when working remotely or during nights and weekends, you can be alerted via a text, email, or phone call if food storage temperature moves outside of preset parameters. Proof that Monnit is always designing products to meet client demands.

Measuring the intensity of lux is extremely important when dealing with photosensitive drugs. Photostability is an integral part of the biotech product development process to ensure quality, efficacy, and safety. That’s why a Monnit Wireless Light Meter is critical to any comprehensive wireless pharmaceutical monitoring system. The Light Meter measures light intensity from 0 -83,000 lux (luminescence/unit area equal to one lumen/square meter). This aids in the management and prevention of light degradation of pharmaceuticals. One more way Monnit provides unparalleled support for the pharmaceutical industry.

Are there restricted areas in your pharmaceutical laboratory or adjacent biotech facilities? Lab technicians or facility managers can install a Wireless Open-Closed Sensor on virtually any door or window frame to report on the status of whether it is open or closed. Another key part of your laboratory monitoring system, the sensor can also be used for refrigerator doors, cabinets, and large container lids. It uses an external switch and trigger magnet to detect status—when magnets meet, it senses and reports that a door, for example, is closed. As with all Monnit Sensors, readings are automatically logged for you to audit access to restricted areas of your workplace.

A Monnit Wireless PIR Motion Detection Sensor uses passive infrared (PIR) technology to sense activity while maintaining confidentiality standards and adding a blanket of security for your pharmaceutical laboratory. If you're concerned about movement in a hallway or employee presence at their stations, this is the device for you. Know instantly if someone has entered a restricted or regulated area in your lab facilities. Another important part of a complete laboratory monitoring system, the standard Infrared Motion and Occupancy Sensors, feature a software-adjustable range up to five meters or 16 feet and an 80-degree viewing angle. The Wide-Angle Motion Sensor features less range but a 110-degree viewing angle.

An alternating current powers the electrical equipment like freezers and refrigerators in your pharmaceutical laboratory. A Wireless AC Current Meters—available in 20, 150, and 500 Amp models—monitor equipment power consumption to help you save money on energy and report on machine health. Using the AC Current Meter can tell you if energy consumption rises, so you know if freezers are working harder due to overdue maintenance, a faulty component, or impending failure. Just one more example of how a Monnit lab monitoring system has the IoT devices to support you.

The ALTA Differential Air Pressure Sensor monitors and helps you control air pressure difference within a range of -500 Pa (pascal) to 500 Pa between its two ports. If there’s a difference between the two ports, you’re alerted via text, email, or call. The sensor monitors optimal positive and negative air pressure and ventilation in pop-up clinic testing tents, isolation tents or rooms, research clean rooms, or hospital operating and critical care rooms to protect patients and staff. You can maintain high HVAC performance and ensure air filters are clean to contain infectious particles, maintain air and pharmaceutical purity, and provide proper filtration.
