Monitoring your lab from the cloud is as easy as checking your email. Laboratory monitoring is designed to help understand and protect research from any negative outcomes of human activity. The monitoring process is an integral part of impact assessments and research results can directly determine whether or not research has been compromised. A simple web-based interface allows data center managers to see real-time data and report trends over time. Laboratories working with sensitive materials can rest assured that their specifications for testing and storage will be met. The system configures to integrate other instrumentation which then automatically generate alerts when user-defined thresholds are met. The system also offers immediate access for management of critical data necessary to make informed decisions in what could be a time-sensitive situation.
