Wouldn't all your cabinets be the same temperature as that of the room
the cabinets are in?  We just monitor the general ambient temperature
because some of our reagents state that storage is at room temperature.

ANP. 21390 Reagent Storage
All reagents are stored as recommended by the manufacturer.
The evidence of compliance now states you must show records such as
refrigerator, freezer and room temperature monitoring as applicable.

We keep records of the refrigerator temps used to store our IHC but we
have reagents used for cytology and histology in various cabinets in our
laboratory.  Someone suggested this new reg. means we must use
thermometers to keep logs of the room temp in each cabinet where
reagents are stored.  We have about 6 cabinets with room temp. reagents.

How do you interpret this reference to room temperature monitoring?

Thank you in advance for your response.
