Introducing TubeSense®

Temperature control during transport (with track and trace) of biological samples and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals

Safe healthcare logistics

When transporting or storing biological samples and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals, it is vital that the environmental conditions remain within set guidelines. From now on, this can be monitored with TubeSense®.

TubeSense® offers both hardware solutions and a versatile software suite with specific modules for healthcare logistics, including:

  • TubeSense® Lab
    For controlled logistics of transported samples to comply with ISO 15189
  • TubeSense® Home Collect
    Specifically designed for user-activated monitoring of home collect tests
  • TubeSense® Pharma
    For monitored transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals
  • TubeSense® ThermControl
    A wireless temperature reporting system for every refrigerator or freezer

Calibrated sensors for safe transport and storage

TubeSense® offers calibrated temperature sensors for different applications, including temperature logging of individually packed biomedical samples and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals, monitored transport boxes for internal and external transport, and for monitoring of fridges and freezers.

A versatile modular software suite

TubeSense® offers a cloud-based software solution with different PC and mobile front-end apps to facilitate your specific healthcare logistics. Sample data, temperature profiles and measured conditions during transport and storage are safely stored in the cloud and can be made available in any Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).

Efficiently regulated hospital logistics

TubeSense® now offers a complete solution to regulate and monitor your hospital logistics, both for internal and external transport. The package includes modules for tracking & tracing, planning pickup & delivery routes, monitoring transport conditions and registering transport data (‘proof of delivery’).

Tubesense® offers:

  • Peace of mind

  • A reliable cloud solution

  • Improved cost efficiency

  • Supports Compliance to Quality Standards such as ISO-15189, -17025, -220 and legal measures

Cloud based server software plus Windows & mobile front-end applications

Key features

  • Item level identification of human biological materials (e.g. blood, urine samples) and temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals;
  • Accurate temperature monitoring at given intervals, based on required temperature profiles (measurement intervals can be specified per batch);
  • Tracking and tracing during key phases in the process (shipment, moment of activation, e.g. at home, at laboratory entry), optional user-activation of temperature monitoring;
  • A software as a service (SaaS) solution with a PC and mobile front-end apps with customized ‘look & feel’, incl. a dashboard for analytics with statistics and key performance indicators (KPIs);
  • Optional integration with laboratory information management systems (LIMS);
