Synchronized clocks

All working areas in ACDIMA BioCenter have Synchronized clocks, where there are 24 Synchronized clocks distributed in the working areas to sync to Domain controller (SNTP) also all the machines are synchronized with the same SNTP to Synchronized clocks to facilitate standardized times entries.

Storage area

ACDIMA BioCenter area contains eight freezers -70°C, thirteen freezers -20°C and four refrigerators to store samples upon their collection, analysis, and for long term storage. All of these freezers and refrigerators are connected with a Rotronic monitoring system programmed to record temperature for all freezers and refrigerators every 30 min and programmed to alert assigned staff members of excursions by sending SMS and E-mail.


Additionally, all biological and chemical wastes are retained separately under conditions minimizing their hazards of contamination and side reactions. The retention rooms are well-ventilated and conditioned to maintain the storage conditions suitable until their disposal.
