Fertility Storage Solutions, an Ovation® company, takes the safety of all specimens extremely seriously. We understand how important it is to maintain an optimum temperature range to keep reproductive materials properly cryopreserved for years and years to come.
In our labs, we have a real-time monitoring system, which shows us the temperature data of each tank at any given moment. We can see when a tank has been opened by lab staff to retrieve a specimen, and when the tank has been closed again.
Because of this extensive and nuanced monitoring, we can identify when a tank has been opened for too long, or if temperatures are no longer in the optimal range. Our multistep approach automatically kicks in when any deviation occurs. In these cases, an alarm response is launched, and texts, emails and phone calls are sent out to the appropriate lab and FSS staff members, to remedy the situation at once. The alerts continue to be pushed out to all staff on the alarm sequence until the temperature of the tank is back in the optimal range that is ideal for the specimens.
