Summary

In order to guarantee a good level of uncertainty, a low long term drift and a great flexibility of use, LBT developed its own multi purpose data acquisition systems (20 temperature and/or relative humidity sensors etc.) used daily in different fields of application like thermal or climate chambers mappings, autoclave validation, thermocycler (PCR) characterization, etc.

We will consider the reasons for this development, the requirements for the hardware and the software, the specifications of the selected hardware and software, the results of measured experimental and field data recorded over more than 5 years.
