When it comes to laboratories, the temperature and the humidity are the most monitored environmental factors.
You need to monitor and control the temperature and humidly due to the fact that you want to prevent the formation of molds and fungus, that can cause diseases, and maintain a fresh storage room where you store your equipment. You need to ensure that the maintenance level is of the highest quality and provide a healthy environment.
When environmental conditions are controlled this means that there is a specific range of conditions which are accepted, that cover certain parameters such as temperature and humidity.
It needs to be monitored, and that means that there need to be checked on specified intervals to check if everything meets the acceptable range and conditions, and if it should be recorded for the purpose of reviewing the results as evidenced of monitoring and documentation.
The UbiBot laboratory temperature and humidity monitoring equipment is fully optimized for laboratory data recording. It monitors everything with a level of precision and a large memory capacity that allows for easy data storage.
They measure laboratory environments in pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications, including research and development, manufacturing, storage and distribution.
It can be used in refrigerators, freezers, cold rooms, clean rooms, calibration laboratories, incubators, stability testing chambers, globe boxes, insulators, transfer catch bio-decontamination units, drying, compressed airs and in animal facilities.
The environment needs to be continuously monitored and controlled, and the traditional temperature and humidity recording methods do not meet most of the requirements.
In the United States, these regulations describe optimal temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. Humidity should be somewhere between 30 to 50 percent, however this is highly variable depending on the type of laboratory you manage.
If an instrument you tend to use in your laboratory is calibrated at one temperature, and then it is being operated at a significantly different temperature, the temperature-induced error can also degrade the results’ accuracy.
This is where the UbiBot line of devices comes into the picture.
The UbiBot Line of Devices
When it comes to the UbiBot line of devices, many of them solve the issues many laboratories have when it comes to temperature and humidity monitoring.
What we mean by this is the fact that all of the devices are precise, and in cases can even use external probes to measure the humidity and temperature in extremely hot or extremely cold environments.
As such, some of the mainline UbiBot devices include:
The UbiBot WS1
The UbiBot WS1 is aa Wi-Fi enabled device which can continuously monitor the temperature, humidity and much more. The WS1 will give you insights into the conditions of your home, office, or in this specific case, your laboratory.
The UbiBot WS1 Pro
The UbiBot WS1 Pro is better than the WS1 due to the fact that it has an LCD screen which gives you the information at a glance, even before you open up the UbiBot IoT platform. It can connect through both mobile data and Wi-Fi, and allow you to view the data from just about anywhere.
The UbiBot GS1
The UbiBot GS1 is the same as the WS1 Pro, except for the fact that it has an industrial-grade build which makes it last and withstand harsh environment, and it even comes in a waterproof casing.
Each of these devices is special with the fact that they can connect to the UbiBot IoT platform, and that is what makes them tick.
Let us dig a little deeper inside of this platform so you can get a clearer understanding of what exactly it offers.
The UbiBot IoT Platform
So, you may be asking yourself, what makes the UbiBot IoT platform so powerful, and, well, special?
You see, the IoT platform gives you access to quite a bit of options.
The idea behind the platform is to provide you with some of the best, all in one solution for all of your temperature and humidity monitoring needs. You see, everything that gets stored and generated from the UbiBot line of devices, will be uploaded to the cloud, or in other words, the platform.
After this data is generated, you will receive it in a Spreadsheet.
If you set specific parameters, and there are some specific data changes, the device will also alert you of these drastic changes that go above or drop below your pre-set amount. In other words, you will receive an email, an sms message or a call that informs you of this change.
Each device is limited to 200 free alerts, however, for every device you own you get the 200 alerts and they stack, so, theoretically, if you owned 10 UbiBot devices, you would get access to 2000 free email alerts.
Aside from that, you can also set specific parameters by using Google Home or Amazon Alexa, which future proofs your laboratory if you were to upgrade to gear like that in the future.
This will make your laboratories one of the smartest when it comes to temperature and humidity monitoring.
Aside from this, you can share all of this information with a work colleague which might be interested in knowing this information at all times just like you, or a closer relative or friend which has the job of maintaining the laboratory while you are away on a trip somewhere.
This is where shared alerts come into play.
Both of you can be alerted at the same time, and whichever one of you is closer to the laboratory can take action and potentially save it from getting into a fatal accident in the process.
With that out of the way, many laboratories do indeed need this in order to operate efficiently, and an investment of this level will go far in keeping your laboratory up to the highest standards in regards to keeping the gear in shape.
