CORIS provides a complete system for remotely monitoring lab equipment and sending alerts when conditions are outside of acceptable thresholds.
CORIS monitors temperatures in all types of freezers and refrigerators: liquid nitrogen (LN2) tanks and dewars (-196), -86C, -40C and -20C freezers, and +4 refrigerators.
The CORIS Extreme Temperature Sensor (ETS) probes cover a range of -250°C to +250°C. Higher temperature monitoring is available by special order.
The CORIS system can monitor humidity, CO2, water/flood detectors, door open/closed, motion/occupancy, and external alarm circuits.
There is no limit to the number of cold storage devices that can be monitored. Hundreds of CORIS ETS modules and temperature probes can share one CORIS Gateway, and there is no limit to the number of CORIS Gateways that can be active for any customer, in any number of locations.
Additional CORIS Extreme Temperature Sensor (ETS) modules can be added at any time to monitor any number of devices, so you can start with a single device and grow to thousands.
The ETS module continuously records the temperature in each freezer and sends the temperature readings to the CORIS Gateway every two minutes. The Gateway sends the readings to the CORIS cloud-based servers. These temperature readings are immediately available to view or graph, and are permanently stored in the CORIS servers.
The CORIS system will alert you via text, email, or phone call when communication with the temperature sensor is lost, so you will know there is likely a local power or Internet failure.
Yes, the optional ETS internal battery pack allows the ETS to continue to operate up to one month if its normal power supply is interrupted. The CORIS Gateway and its Internet connection must remain working for ETS temperature readings to be sent to the CORIS servers.
Yes, CORIS offers a complete warranty with immediate replacement of all failed hardware components for the term of the license agreement or three years, whichever is longer.
Yes, the CORIS system is compliant with HIPPA, CAP, CLIA, and CFR 21 Part 11. The CORIS system does not record or transmit patient information, information on samples or specimens, or other identifying data from the lab. Only the temperature sensor readings, on/off states of external alarms, presence of water, CO2 levels, and motion detected are recorded. These readings are permanently recorded in the cloud (not in a local computer), and users cannot modify or delete any sensor readings or alert information stored in the cloud. CORIS reports are automatically generated and permanently stored, and cannot be modified or deleted by users. Authorities can use the reports to verify the integrity of the original readings.
No modification or configuration of the firewall is required. This is a unique feature of the CORIS system. CORIS has two network security patents that allow CORIS devices to communicate with its cloud servers without any new configuration or permissions in the firewall. If a new computer can connect to the Internet using its Ethernet connection, the CORIS Gateway modules will be able to communicate with our servers.
No, the system is cloud-based, so there is no local computer or server. This means your lab does not have to operate a computer, secure it, maintain it, back it up, or update any application software.
CORIS does not use WiFi. We use LoRa wireless communications, which has much greater range and security.
All data is permanently stored in our cloud-based servers, which are mirrored in multiple geographic regions, with automatic backup and recovery.
Temperature readings are encrypted, and LoRa communications include enhanced security to guard against data capture.
It is not required, but we do recommend regularly changing your password.
Alerts are sent to users via email, text message, and/or phone call, based on user preference. Each user can customize how they like to receive alerts based on time of day, day of week, or severity of the alert.
Alerts are sent immediately once the alert conditions are triggered. Alerts are triggered by both the temperature and the time interval that the temperature exceeded its limit, e.g. the temperature has been warmer than -75 degrees C for more than 15 minutes.
Yes, there is no limit to the number of people who can receive alerts.
Yes, you can customize how frequently alerts are repeated with no response.
Yes, there are three levels of severity for alert conditions, and different people can receive different severity alerts. This is highly customizable to suit your lab’s personnel, including multiple conditions that trigger each level of severity.
You can define which freezers, LN2 tanks, refrigerators or incubators for which you want to receive alerts, so you will not receive alerts for other freezers in your lab that may have problems.
