How the LCSB monitors temperatures and other sensors

Nicolas BonjeanNicolas Bonjean is the Lab Coordinator of  the LCSB                      (Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine), affiliated to the University of Luxembourg.
The LCSB is accelerating biomedical research by closing the link between systems biology and medical research.
Collaboration between biologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians is offering new
insights in complex systems like cells, organs, and organisms.
These insights are essential for understanding principal
mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and for developing new tools in diagnostics and therapy.
The LCSB has put in place a support group to enable the researchers to focus on their research.
All the logistics of about 250 researchers is organized by the Support biotech team using the Labcollector software.
A reagent to buy, an equipment to book, … everything runs smoothly in a few clicks.

Their research activities require to track all kind of sensors  such as temperature, humidity, pressure, gas, and light.
Monitoring all ULT freezers (-80°C) is essential for the biobanking activity of all research teams working at the LCSB. Nicolas Bonjean also decided to expand this monitoring to all bench freezers and special rooms.
The LCSB supply in CO2 is maintained by redundant bottles linked to an alarm switch.
All these sensors are totally integrated in LabCollector add-on: logger. The add-on receives all data from different hardware suppliers.

AgileBio provides an all-in-one solution with an easy plug-and-play AgileBio data logger and digital temperature sensors (-55°C/+125°C)A complete range of sensors are available. In complement to AgileBio hardware, the LCSB also has in place several wireless ULT sensors and switches from Rmoni.

Nicolas Bonjean and his team rely on our LabCollector add-on: Temperature logger for real time tracking and monitoring their freezers, rooms, storage, gas bottles… Water production is next!

Sensors monitoring

Sensors monitoring would not make sense without a real time alerting system. LabCollector provides this with a GSM box configured and fine-tuned to escalate alerts to several contacts depending on precise schedules.

LabCollector data/sensors logging has proved to be reliable and monitoring for the LCSB a variety of more than 200 sensors.
