In a recent article, the Boston Globe reports on a medical monitoring catastrophe: “A freezer malfunction at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital has severely damaged one-third of the world’s largest collection of autism brain samples, potentially setting back research on the disorder by years, scientists say. One freezer contained about 150 brain samples from people who had died with a neurological or psychiatric condition.” The full article can be found online at http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2012/06/11/freezer_failure_at_brain_bank_hampers_autism_research/?page=1. Experiencing surprisingly common alarm and freezer failures, academic labs and biorepositories across the country are increasingly turning to automated temperature monitoring to safeguard their high-value life science samples, and CAS DataLoggers has the ideal solution with the Accsense A2-05 Ethernet Temperature Data Logger.
