In Vitro Clinic Uses Incubator Monitoring to Prevent Losses

A free white paper by CAS DataLogger

CAS DataLoggers provided the automated incubator monitoring and alarm system for an in vitro fertilization clinic which needed a wireless setup to monitor and alarm several double stack CO2 injection incubators. These medical incubators were used for embryonic implantation stage of the in vitro process as opposed to long-term storage. Staff needs to maintain the incubators at a constant temperature of 37oC (99oF) and a relative humidity of 99%. Each incubator is equipped with an external CO2 tank which lasts about a month before needing to be replaced. Sensors are used to determine the CO2 levels inside the incubators to keep them within acceptable limits (about 5% concentration). However, sensor accuracy is vulnerable to temperature and humidity fluctuations within the incubators caused by opening the doors. Therefore this complex setup required an automatic system to monitor and alarm temperature, humidity, and CO2 in real time to alert staff of unsafe levels and prevent any losses.
