RE: Shipping Validation of Cell Banks

 
Noriel: There are a number of devices on the market that are able to do
what you ask. I use the RTM2000 Temperature Monitor (3 channels) made by
Ryan Instruments (www.ryaninst.com or 1-800-999-7926 in USA and Canada).
They have a new unit available that replaces the unit I have called the MCL
or Multi-Channel Temperature Logger (up to 4 channels).
 
I place the thermistors in the load, pack the load per our shipping
specifications and secure the electronics package to the outside of the
shipping container. Then ship the package following our normal procedure.
If the receiving station has the software and hardware to download the
data, it can be done as soon as the package is arrived and the data
transmitted back to you via E-mail or on diskette or preferrably both. In
the case of the MCL, it uses a "memory stick". The memory stick can be sent
back to you too. The sensor package can also be removed from the shipping
container and sent back to you by overnight express courier service and
then you can retreive the data. I have also conducted shipping stress tests
where the package was returned shipped the same day it was received and
then I retrieved the data once it gets back to our shipping and receiving
faciity.
 
Of course, any data acquisition system which you deploy will also have to
be validated as well, prior to its use in your controlled study.

Dear Forum,
We are planning to conduct a shipping study (validation) of our liquid
nitrogen dewar. In developing the validation protocol, we have come
across a problem, what type of temperature probe should be we use that is
able to withstand the extreme temperature yet maintain its ability to
accurately record the temperature? It would be very helpful if anyone can
provide an insight to the type of temp recording equipment they used or
recommend?
Regards,
Noriel Canotal
