Baker Ruskinn manufactures and markets medical incubated workstations which mimic the physiological conditions found inside the human body. The workstations regulate temperature, humidity and gas levels to simulate bodily environments, such as those existing within the heart, lungs, kidney or brain.
Baker Ruskinn workstations are used in
microbiology, cancer research, stem cell treatments, cell therapy
and regenerative medicine laboratories. By using Baker Ruskinn's
incubators, scientists can better understand how cells
behave within the body, enabling greater understanding of
various diseases, such as cancers, diabetes and many neurological
As part of Baker Ruskinn's final product testing and
quality control, the performance of the workstations' gas,
temperature and humidity regulators is checked to ensure that they
regulate environments as expected.
To measure the performance of the temperature and humidity
regulators, Baker Ruskinn uses
Tinytag Ultra 2 TGU-4500 dual channel temperature and
relative humidity data loggers.
Six Tinytags are used in total in the quality control
laboratory, with one logger placed in the working area of each
finished incubator during the testing period. The data loggers are
placed inside the units and measure temperature and
relative humidity levels over a period of time to test the units'
overall operating stability. Temperature is also monitored
at specific values to check that the machines can reach and
maintain temperature. The data from the loggers is then used to
calibrate the unit's temperature control.
Some workstations facilitate experiments lasting 120 days, so
it is crucial that the units are able to maintain the
correct environmental levels without fluctuation. Tinytag
data loggers are guaranteed to meet the accuracy stated on their
specification for one year from the point of purchase, meaning that
Tinytags are a reliable choice for use in quality
control. Regular service calibration
by Gemini Data Loggers also supports quality testing by
providing certification that the data logger's accuracy is
traceable to National Standards.
For Baker Ruskinn, Tinytags have proved to be an
easy-to-use and dependable
solution for product and quality testing over the 14 years
that they have been using them. Richard Pennock, a
quality controller for Baker Ruskinn, comments on his experience
using Tinytags. "Tinytags are extremely easy to set up
and download," he says. "We've never had
any problems or issues with them."
Gemini Data Loggers is an ISO
9001 accredited manufacturer, making Tinytag data loggers a
straightforward and trusted solution for enhancing quality control
and product testing.
