CDC Estimates $20 million/yr waste from poor refrigeration
Thousands revaccinated after shots spoil
In one recent case in Sioux City, Iowa, more than 1,000 families were notified by letter and telephone that they needed to get their children revaccinated. State officials found that the refrigerator at the clinic that administered the shots repeatedly dropped below freezing over a 17-month period in 2005 and 2006, potentially ruining the vaccines stored there. "We just didn't notice it," said Dr. Ray Sturdevant, president of the Prairie Pediatrics and Adolescent Clinic.
Poor refrigeration has been blamed for similar problems elsewhere
around the country over the past 2 1/2 years: In St. Cloud, Minn.,
a clinic had to revaccinate 8,600 patients, most of them children.
In Lane County, Ore., 500 children and adults had to get another
shot. In western Florida, it happened to about 250 kids.

24/7 Refrigerator Monitor
The Master Thermometer monitors, alarms, charts and logs your refrigerators. In fact it monitors any four refrigerators. It continually logs the temperature to non-volatile memory and draws a chart on the Easy Touch display. If any of the refrigerator temperatures gets too warm or cold it sets off an alarm, tells you what caused the alarm and triggers the auto dialer or an instant message to warn you.
So, instead of spending thousands of dollars on special laboratory refrigerators, you can add the TV2 to any home or commercial refrigerator to protect your inventory. The TV2 monitors and documents the temperature all day, every day. If it begins to get too hot or too cold you will be warned immediately by the built-in audio/visual alarm, and the optional auto dialer will call your cell phone or pager. The warning will come in time for you to move the inventory to a safe place.
The TV2 has a high and low alarm for each of its sensors. To prevent false alarms each one has a delay time. Opening the refrigerator door or loading in warm product may cause a temporary rise in temperature but this will not trigger the alarm. Only a potentially serious rise or fall in temperature will be enough to trigger the alarm.
The best protection against loss of your inventory is your employees. Their awareness of the refrigerator temperature ensures that most problems can be caught before they become dangerous or critical. The Master Thermometer helps keep them aware of the temperature. The Max/Min setting for each sensor turns red if one of them is out of safe range even if an alarm is never triggered. And since the temperature history chart is always displayed on the Master Thermometer each employee becomes part of your quality assurance program. A quick glance at the chart immediately tells them that the temperature is and has been safe during the last several days.
The digital chart can be zoomed-in for a closer look at individual temperatures, zoomed-out to examine trends, printed out, loaded into excel or word, and saved on your network so every one can look at it. Newer temperature readings rolls over the oldest data so you are always looking at the latest 1.5 years of data.
