SmartFridge for Laboratories

The Spacecode SmartFridge is used by laboratories for safely securing, storing and automatically tracking blood and urine specimens and other laboratory specimens as they move between different points.

The SmartFridge has been specifically developed for laboratories to trace the physical movement of specimens placed or stored inside and to monitor their temperature. These specimens require stringent management and control because of their importance in diagnosis and treatment of patients, reducing additional risks for invasive procedures and safeguarding against the need for unnecessary treatment for specimens that cannot be replaced.

Anti-doping laboratories use the SmartFridge solution to abide by chain-of-custody requirements, legal compliance and safety needs.

The revolutionary LED “pick to light” tag feature instantly identifies the exact location of a specimen, saving precious time on manual searches and protecting against oversights and misplacements. The tag also includes critical safety information such as the patient`s ID, specimen type and expiration date.

The fridge can only be opened by authorised personnel via RFID access control and constantly records exactly who accessed the device, when it was accessed, what was put in or taken out, and where the transaction occurred.
