  3. Oximeters Used to Monitor COVID Patients

    A recent BBC News article has drawn attention to an NHS strategy in which pulse oximeters are being distributed to high-risk COVID-19 patients in order to monitor their progress at home. These £20 instruments provide an easy method of monitoring oxygen levels, allowing patients and doctors to identify silent hypoxia sooner and take action before situations become critical. Dr Matt Inada-Kim, ‘the doctor leading the [Covid Oximetry@home] scheme thinks everyone should consider buying one’.[1] Continue reading →
  4. Cold Chain Vaccine Storage: Temperature Data Loggers Essential to Preserving Jab Potency

    On the 4th January 2021, 82-year-old Brian Pinker became the first person to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine which was approved by the MHRA for UK distribution on the 30th December 2020.[1] This follows the MHRA’s approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on the 2nd December 2020[2]; inoculation using this vaccine began on the 8th December 2020 with Margaret Keenan becoming the first-ever recipient.[3] However, transporting, storing and distributing injections brings its own set of logistical problems as their viability is dependent on maintaining specific temperatures which vary from vaccine to vaccine. Monitoring and maintaining temperature is therefore essential to ensuring successful mass inoculation. Many companies, such as Comark, Testo and FilesThruTheAir, have developed temperature data logging solutions optimised for this purpose. Continue reading →

  6. Monitor Indoor Air Quality to Prevent COVID-19 Outbreaks

    Research into the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 has presented ‘overwhelming evidence’ that inhalation of the virus ‘represents a major transmission route for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).’[1] In response, leading bodies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)[2] and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)[3], advise improving air ventilation in enclosed spaces in addition to following existing guidance, e.g. washing hands, maintaining social distancing, and wearing a face mask. Monitoring CO2 concentration provides an easy way of assessing air quality and maintaining good air ventilation. PASS Ltd offers a range of indoor air quality monitors suitable for this purpose, including Chauvin Arnoux’s CA 1510 IAQ Tester. Continue reading →
  7. Build Back Greener After Coronavirus: Use a PEL to Monitor and Improve Energy Efficiency

    Power Quality Analyser Blog As part of the government’s attempts to build back greener after coronavirus, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has revealed a Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. This billion-pound program is aimed at improving energy efficiency in schools, hospitals and other public buildings. It is part of the UK’s efforts to reduce the public sector’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% in a bid to meet legally binding targets of net zero emissions by 2050. Portable energy loggers, such as Chauvin Arnoux’s PEL103, are vital tools when it comes to measuring energy consumption and efficiency. These relatively inexpensive instruments can be used to establish an initial benchmark prior to implementing changes. Additionally, PELs can pinpoint where improvements would be most effective and can be used to monitor progress over time. Continue reading →
  8. Legionnaires' Disease: Managing the Risk Post Lockdown

    When the UK entered lockdown on the 23rd March 2020 many offices, schools, universities, leisure facilities and tourist attractions were forced to shut. Now, as the UK begins to re-open, concerns of social distancing, hygiene and sanitation have been raised. One such concern is the increased risk of Legionella outbreaks caused by a build-up of Legionella pneumophilia bacteria in the stagnant water systems of buildings that have been closed due to lockdown.

  9. News Roundup: Skin-Temperature-Screening Thermal Cameras

    Thermal News Roundup - Banner The applications of temperature-screening thermal cameras are far-reaching. In April and May 2020 PASS Ltd published blogs detailing the implementation of Hikvision Temperature-Screening Cameras in Bournemouth Airport (BBC) and Carlton House Care Home (New Milton, Hampshire) in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Since then the BBC and ITV have reported on the use of temperature-screening thermal imaging cameras at Heathrow Airport, Portsmouth International Port, the offices of a tech company in Uxbridge, a sausage company in County Down (NI), and Albert Schloss, a pub in Manchester. Continue reading →
  10. The Comprehensive IR & Thermal Temperature Screening Guide

    Please note that this blog was originally published on the 12th June 2020. It was updated on the 3rd November 2020 to reflect current infection and death statistics and to include new FLIR and Testo Thermal Imaging Cameras. In late 2019 the first known cases of COVID-19 were reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Since then it has quickly spread around the globe and was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the 11th March 2020. Over 46 million cases have been confirmed in 190 countries resulting in approximately 1.2 million deaths worldwide (as of 3rd November 2020).[1] Continue reading →
