Control Company Announces First TraceableLIVE® Liquid Nitrogen Monitoring Thermometers
Monitor liquid nitrogen environments from the cloud with remote notifications.
Webster, TX, July 6, 2017 — Control Company announced today the launch of TRACEABLELIVE®, Liquid Nitrogen Monitoring Thermometers (LN2), a companion device to its digital Wi-Fi connected Traceable® Thermometer. This marks the first TraceableLIVE® devices to remotely monitor the appropriate temperature range of materials stored in a vessel cooled by liquid nitrogen in critical, controlled environments.
By inhibiting all biochemical activity, cryopreservation allows for the long-term storage of sensitive biological materials. Stem cells and other samples that cannot be replaced, should be stored at the lowest temperature with complete consistency. These cells and other sample materials are contained in cryovials, which prevent the materials direct contact with liquid nitrogen. Constant temperature surveillance help the samples maintain viability over long periods of time. Since the security, damage and spoilage of cells with a limited life span are major concerns, a liquid nitrogen filled container with submerged inventory racks or, dewar acts as a storage container. Dewars require accurate and reliable monitoring at all times. The TraceableLIVE® Liquid Nitrogen Monitoring Thermometer is an efficient device that meets that requirement in a cost-effective way.
"Adding the LN2 Monitoring Thermometer to the TraceableLIVE® line of products is a statement of our commitment to provide clients with a complete range of monitoring products for their critical lab environments,” stated Mike Blazes, CEO of Control Company. “We appreciate the benefits technology brings to today’s lab monitoring processes. It is our goal to continuously create and implement the best technology, so that our products can continue to evolve and provide the most accurate and reliable monitoring for the pharmaceutical, medical and research communities."
The LN2 cloud-connected device operates with the same Traceable® technology that the industry has come to depend on. The LN2 thermometers provide temperature monitoring through:
- 4 calibration points;
- Range -200°C to 105°C;
- Accuracy of ±0.25°C;
- Resolution of 0.01;
