PharmaWatch™ Perfects Wireless Cold Storage Monitoring for Pharmaceuticals and Vaccines

Our wireless technology is engineered and designed to monitor critical storage equipment where sensitive vaccines, medications and other pharmaceuticals are stored. The PharmaWatch web portal enables users to access (24/7) real-time monitoring data and receive alert notifications regarding storage environment conditions such as temperature, humidity, CO2, and differential pressure. It alleviates the difficulties inherent in manually monitoring multiple healthcare storage environments in multiple locations while automatically maintaining complete regulatory compliance.

Main Features

  • Wireless
  • Full Compliance
  • NIST Certified
  • Plug and Play Installation
  • Access data anywhere, anytime
  • Alerts you can trust

How Our Monitoring System Works:

Step 1: You need a Critical Storage Environment

Our devices can monitor a wide range of temperatures from -200°C (-328°F) to 50°C (122°F). Applications include:

  • Liquid Nitrogen level (-193°C)
  • Ultra-Cold freezer (-80°C)
  • Standard freezers (-30°C)
  • Refrigeration (4°C)
  • Room monitor (20°C)
  • Warmers (35°C)

Step 2: Wireless + Plug & Play = Easy Installation

Once the probe is installed per CDC guidance, it is connected to the radio. The radio is preprogrammed to connect to the client WiFi signal. Our devices connect to the network via 802.11 b/g/n. If required by the network administrator, the radios can be programmed to meet an assortment of network security protocols. It's that simple.

Step 3: Data is Encrypted and Completely Secure

Data transmission from the sensor to the PharmaWatch secure cloud servers is encrypted and secure. The digitally transmitted data cannot be modified or altered. Upon ingestion, the data is stored with encryption keys that prevent any data from being altered. Similar technology is used in the banking industry to protect data.

Step 4: Login to the Web Portal to View Data, Manage Users and Customize the Alerts.

Logging in is password protected. The various levels of access allows only Managers the ability to: understand who is using the tool, add or change Users and Alert Contacts, even assess the timeliness of answering and properly documenting the alerts.
