XT FlexLock Medical Refrigerator Lock and Temperature Monitor

  • Omnicell XT FlexLock

Product Overview

Medications and vaccines requiring refrigeration pose special challenges to pharmacy staff. If proper temperatures are not maintained it can affect the integrity of medications and lead to waste. The CDC recently adopted more stringent requirements for storing and monitoring refrigerated vaccines.

Secure Storage, Accurate Temperature Monitoring

The Omnicell® XT FlexLock is a medical refrigerator lock and temperature monitoring system that complies with the latest CDC guidelines on storing refrigerated vaccines—including accurate calibration within ±0.5°C.1 In fact, it’s the only pharmacy refrigerator temperature monitoring system integrated with automated dispensing cabinets that meets all CDC guidelines for storing refrigerated vaccines.

  • Offset feature automatically adjusts temperature measurement based on calibration result—no need for manual calculations

  • Reports provide compliance documentation, including temperature readings to the decimal level

  • Highly accurate temperature sensor and calibration methods assure stability of stored items

New Wireless Option for FlexLock

Advanced electronics in the Omnicell XT Series Automated Dispensing Cabinets enable the flexibility of wireless technology for cabinet accessories.

  • Untether your workflow—freedom to locate refrigerators where it makes sense for clinicians and facility layout
  • Advanced Bluetooth® peer-to-peer technology ensures security and performance
  • Flexible—each XT cabinet supports up to two wireless FlexLock devices and one wireless External Return Bin
