Abstract

The goal of this research was to design, develop and implement a remote monitoring system for research biobanks using internet of things and analog and digital sensors, as well as micro controllers with wireless connection. Biobanks are non-profit establishments, that manage collections of biological samples for diagnostic or biomedical research purposes. Given the relevance of the stored material, not only the safety, but also the integrity and correct storage of this biological material are critical factors to guarantee the accuracy of all the investigations based on biobanks. Our challenge was to successfully couple sensors for measuring temperature, humidity, voltage, strength and sound into a single unit and implement both a software with a web viewer and a real-time alarm module. This remote system allows to monitor a biobank to assure the quality of the stored biological material without substantially increasing implementation and operation cost.
