For those choosing to invest in remote lab monitoring systems, it’s about “the cost of not having a robust system in place. Downtime is a massive cost to the industry.”

—Kyle Detro, Monnit Monitoring Team Lead

An article, “Remote Monitoring—Finding the Right System” by Hannah Kent-Webb on, weighs the features and benefits of using life science lab remote monitoring systems. Kent-Webb interviewed Monnit Monitoring Team Lead Kyle Detro for the piece. Detro and other remote monitoring experts responded to some critical questions that bio lab managers and scientists should consider when selecting a remote monitoring system, including:

  • Why should life scientists invest in a remote monitoring system?
  • What are the essential elements to focus on when comparing systems?
  • What key concerns should a remote monitoring system address?

Whether working in a lab or remotely, there are many assets to track. Lab freezers, in particular, should have 24/7 protection and predictive maintenance procedures in place using low-temperature sensors. Automated monitoring is also essential to maintain high efficiency and regulatory compliance. The article can help you with the basics of knowing how to choose and use a remote monitoring system for your unique lab’s needs.

Remote Monitoring—Finding the Right System

The global pandemic made the advantages of remote lab monitoring apparent to all, but with the movement of people back to the workplace, the question for many is at what level this should now remain. How much can remote lab monitoring offer me, and more importantly, what should I consider when making a purchase? After all, investing in any technology, be it a new TV for your home or a remote monitoring system for your lab, is an important decision, and we all want to make an informed choice to get the most bang for our buck.

The levels of remote monitoring available vary widely. System benefits can range from simple temperature measurements to humidity, light, and vibration monitoring, and even lab usage stats. Low temperature sensors are the most popular investment. For prospective buyers, however, it’s about finding the right balance of remote monitoring to suit your needs and asking yourself what you really want from your system.
