10:30 - 24 November 2004

A software firm hopes a breakthrough piece of new technology will find a market to protect vaccines, blood and other refrigerated medicines.

Cuberoot is a computer development firm formed following the redundancies when Ericsson pulled out from its Leicester base at Bede Island in 2001.

Its new product aims to protect temperature-sensitive medical pro-ducts such as vaccines.

Cuberoot's Mark Carnell said: "It's a pharmacy fridge monitor which can be used for applications such as blood banks.

"Most fridges are only monitored by a digital display. Our product brings the internet to the fridge."

The product, which has a unit cost of about £200, will send e-mails to anywhere in the world or texts to mobile phones to alert users to any problems with the fridge. Temperature changes, humidity and smoke can all be detected, as can light, if the door is left open. Vaccines, blood and other medical products can be damaged or rendered useless by not being kept in the correct conditions.

Mr Carnell said: "We are now marketing the product, going to suppliers, fridge manufacturers and others."

The product, one of Cuberoot's Net Commander range, is the culmination of the years of research the four-strong firm has been conducting.

Cuberoot is based at the Melton Street, Leicester, premises of Camtec Electronics, a management buy-out in 2001 of the Ericsson business in the city. Camtec manufactures data communication prod-ucts, including those developed by Cuberoot. Both continued working for Ericsson after the mobile phone giant pulled out, but have also been seeking to build their product range and customer base.

Mr Carnell said: "Now this fridge product has come to completion. There's a complete audit trail from the manufacturer of vaccines through the transportation and to the doctor's surgery, but that's where the audit trail ends. £200 is not a great cost, especially when you have thousands of pounds' worth of vaccine in a fridge."
