Asset Tracking and Temperature Monitoring in the Laboratory
In a laboratory, indoor localization and tracking can be used to monitor laboratory samples.
AT A GLANCE
- Indoor positioning of refrigerators
- storage time
- monitoring of storage temperature
- process surveillance
Several thousand samples are constantly stored in a large laboratory. The storage location, the storage time and the temperature are important so that the samples do not change. In addition, mechanical or physical stresses on the sample materials can lead to incorrect results. Correct storage and careful transport are therefore of utmost importance for the quality of laboratory results.
The location of the samples is determined with the means of indoor positioning via Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons. The location and all important information, such as temperature, humidity, shocks and the last cleaning appear in an app or dashboard. In addition, the historical course of the measured values can be called up at any time.
