Best Practice Show Review
This week, Lec Medical showcased the very latest innovations in medical refrigeration and temperature monitoring at the Best Practice Show, with a comprehensive range and versatile range on stand for visitors to see. Best Practice, the NACP’s Annual Conference, is the leading event for those within the primary care profession and was attended by over 5,500 GPs, Practice Managers, federations, Nurses and CCG professionals. Over the course of two days, Best Practice provided a platform for experts to update practitioners in one of the most anticipated networking and exhibition events of the year for the sector.
On the Lec Medical stand, visitors were able to see first-hand the range of solutions provided by Lec, with a dedicated sales team available to give further insight into how these solutions can be put into practice. One of the stand highlights was the ‘Control Range’ refrigeration which is the latest addition to the company’s extensive portfolio. Designed to provide the operator with the peace of mind, the range features dual temperature monitoring probes: one measures the air temperature within the fridge compartment and the secondary probe replicated an actual vaccine vial’s temperature (load). Users are able to select which measure they prefer to monitor and record. This means that even if the air temperature inside the fridge deviates from standard temperatures, staff will be able to check the vaccine probe recording and verify the true temperature of the vaccines to see whether further action is required or not.
Visitors were also particularly interested in the temperature monitoring solutions featured on the stand, as government regulations on temperature recording and the cold chain process in general begin to tighten in terms of safety and best practices carried out. The fully validated temperature monitoring systems offered by Lec Medical are designed so that in the event of the refrigerators air temperature deviating from the pre-programmed parameters, an alarm will automatically be triggered. This enables designated members of staff to deal with the issue quickly, efficiently and more importantly – before products become unusable. For practices today, this is absolutely essential when it comes to minimising wastage and cost making it a key point of interest for industry professionals who visited the show.
