The  Importance of Backup Power in Clinical Research Labs:

Clinical research labs are the epicenter of scientific exploration, where groundbreaking discoveries pave the way for innovative medical treatments. Hospital Facilities Managers recognize that data integrity guarantees

are vital for building a foundation of trust in research findings. A reliable power supply is an unsung hero behind this success, as any power disruption could compromise the accuracy and completeness of valuable research data.


Empowering Precise Data Collection:

In clinical research, data collection is a meticulous process that demands accuracy and precision. Advanced research equipment, such as DNA sequencers, high-throughput analyzers, and mass spectrometers, depend on continuous power to generate accurate results. feature-tissue-processor

Battery backup systems, such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units, provide the necessary support, allowing researchers to collect data without interruption and ensuring the validity of their findings.


Ensuring Data Integrity for Life-Saving Medicines:

Clinical research often leads to the discovery of life-saving medicines and therapies. These groundbreaking advancements hold the potential to transform patient care and bring hope to countless lives.

However, research data that underpins these discoveries must be protected at all costs. Battery backup systems stand as a fortress, shielding data integrity and allowing researchers to focus on their pursuit of medical breakthroughs.


Safeguarding Sensitive Biomedical Materials:

Clinical research labs house a treasure trove of biomedical materials, ranging from samples to experimental drugs. Many of these materials are exceptionally sensitive to temperature fluctuations and require precise storage conditions.feature-ult-freezer

A power outage can lead to catastrophic consequences, jeopardizing the integrity and viability of these valuable resources. Battery backup solutions ensure a continuous power supply to storage units, preserving the potential of biomedical materials and safeguarding the investments made in research.


Enabling Uninterrupted Data Analysis:

Data analysis is the backbone of clinical research, where researchers derive meaningful insights from complex datasets. Interruptions in power can lead to data loss, rendering countless hours of research futile. Battery backup systems provide the necessary support, allowing researchers to analyze data without interruption, accelerating the pace of research and maximizing the return on


Enhancing Research Resilience in Emergencies:

In times of natural disasters or unforeseen events, clinical research labs must remain operational to ensure the continuous progress of research. Battery backup power stands as a critical enabler during such emergencies, empowering researchers to continue their vital work when the world needs medical advancements the most.



In the high-stakes world of healthcare, resilience through backup power is non-negotiable. By considering the critical role of backup power and safeguarding sensitive biomedical materials, healthcare professionals can design facilities that prioritize patient care, preserve invaluable resources, and support medical advancements.

Once the power goes out, the clock starts.

Calculate Your potential savings with a battery backup system

Let Us Assist You With Your Backup Power Needs!


Battery backup systems offer instant and automatic power for both medical equipment and laboratory appliances alike. No staff needs to be on-site to monitor or start the generator. Valuable samples and inventory will stay safe without any extra effort.

Their shape is vertical like a cabinet, and their batteries don't leak. This means they can fit into small spaces and be positioned in any way. Meaning now matter how crowded your vaccine or sample room is, you can ensure you'll be protected.

Plus, if your lab or storage room is truly tight on space, a hardwired backup power unit can instantly supply remote power to your appliance. It does so via the outlet its already plugged into.

No matter what system you choose, it will protect your biomedical and chemical samples from power loss. It guarantees a smooth switch from utility power to backup power, avoiding temperature excursions.

And for Facilities who perform outpatient operations, battery power instantly engages, keeping your operations going with zero downtime due to their advanced battery technology.

Even better, is that battery generators can be outfitted with as much power as you want. So system’s can be designed with enough power to protect a facility’s inventory: 

  • Overnight
  • All daypower-fluctuation
  • Over a weekend
  • Or even for a whole week.

So, to protect your facility from tens of thousands of dollars in lost inventory speak to a Medi-Products battery backup expert.

They’ll help design you a system that both meets your power needs and will fit inside your facility—for a much lower cost than what your vaccines are worth. So a backup power system pays for itself the first time your power goes out.

Designing a system for you is as easy as taking a picture of your appliance’s nameplate, and a photo of the room where it’s in.

Then, you just email both photos to our Product experts, and we’ll provide you with multiple options for backup power protection.

At Mediproducts, we provide you with all the help you need to keep up with NFPA 99 changes, including all relevant local and regional standards. If you have questions about meeting NFPA requirements for your emergency and electrical power systems, contact us. We will be happy to answer all of your questions.
