Refrigerator and Freezer Monitoring

The Vaisala fridge and freezer monitoring, alarming, and reporting system reduces the risk of lost product and regulatory non-compliance with industry-best sensors and easy-to-use software. The system comprises viewLinc software and Vaisala’s industry-best sensing devices. viewLinc allows each monitored location to be managed via Web browser and run scheduled and on-demand reports that are customizable, gap-free and compliant with USP797,  21 CFR Part 11 and other  major regulatory standards.

Monitoring refrigerators and freezers and other low temperature environments with viewLinc protects valuable products, ensures regulatory compliance, and provides assurance of temperature stability. With increasing regulatory attention on temperature monitoring in life science environments by agencies such as the Joint Commission, CAP and the FDA, manual tracking of temperature and humidity monitoring is no longer effective or efficient. Designed for life science and GxP applications, the low temperature logging, remote alarming, and FDA 21 CFR Part 11-compliant reporting of viewLinc is ideal for freezers, coolers, and cold rooms.

Compliant Temperature Monitoring in Cold Applications 

Low temperature environments in life science applications require secure, 24/7 monitoring to maintain specified temperatures and ensure the safety, purity and efficacy of pharmaceutical/biotech products. As worldwide regulatory organizations refine and establish guidelines for storing, processing, and transporting temperature controlled pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, there is an increasing need for better recording, more customizable reporting, and easy-to-use monitoring solutions.

Key to compliance with GxP regulations for temperature controlled products is the ability to respond quickly to undesirable conditions in controlled environments. The Vaisala continuous monitoring system sends alerts to designated personnel if temperatures go out of specification or if sensor communication with the system is lost. The viewLinc software is browser-based and accessible from any network location. Reports are customizable, easily exported to a spreadsheet for analysis, and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. Many viewLinc users note that trend and historical reports are easy to generate on demand and this often becomes an important aspect of their auditing process by customers and regulating agencies. ​      

Freezer & Refrigerator Monitoring in Pharmaceutical & Biotech Environments

The Vaisala monitoring, alarming and reporting solution ensures accurate, gap-free records for temperature controlled cold environments, including:
  • Pharmaceutical refrigerators and freezers
  • Biotechnology Freezer farms 
  • Medical refrigerators, cold rooms and pharmacies
  • Transport coolers & equipment
  • Refrigerated Warehouses
viewLinc software is available in English, German, French, Chinese, Swedish and Japanese and can be used with a wide range of Vaisala temperature sensors. viewLinc integrates easily with your facility’s existing network, eliminating the cost of installing and maintaining a dedicated network for temperature monitoring alone. Sensing devices connect via Ethernet, PoE, WiFi or a combination of all connectivity options. Device options include a truly wireless data logger that has an IP65 enclosure rating, as well as internal or external (probe) temperature sensors.
