  • We believe there’s a better way. One that provides the physical convenience of a traditional on-site stocking program without all the hassle. After years of customer feedback and development, we’ve introduced the Helix system.And with the simple swipe of a card, the burden is lifted.
  • So how does Helix work?To the scientist, it’s simple – Just swipe the pass, grab the product and get back to the benchIt’s no surprise that simplicity requires advanced technology. The passkey controls access to the unit while RFID technology tracks the inventory. The Helix Core Center monitors inventory, temperature and expiration dates around the clock so that the scientists have continuous access to fresh product.Let’s explore how this impacts the key stakeholders in more detail.How Does Helix Work?Helix is a “smart” patented on site storage solution that provides Secure Access, Product Tracking, and Real Time Monitoring. Simply place a Helix on site stocking solution at your point of use. Pre- authorized users access the Helix solution by swiping their badge. Users add or remove inventory and shut the door; the system tracks all product movement automatically, and automates the billing and reordering process.  Secure AccessAll Helix units are locked to ensure secure storage of the inventory. To access the products, a user presents their access badge near the LCD screen to unlock the door. We work closely with you to identify your list of approved users that need access to the Helix solution. Approved users are issued an access badge that contains information such as user identification, cost assignment, group, department, and grant details.  Product TrackingUsing secure access and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), every inventory transaction is captured and monitored in real time. When an authorized user access the Helix solution, , Helix can identify which item was removed and knows which authorized user removed it.. Helix will notify you via email when a transaction occurs, and will only bill you for the products you use. Helix is even smart enough to identify mistakes. If an authorized user grabs the wrong item and returns it to the unit, Helix acknowledges the return and does not process it as a transaction. mistakes.  Product Monitoring. Helix also monitors product health in real time, ensuing that items stored inside are fresh and free of degradation due to age, temperature, or improper storage. Helix perform real time status monitoring and tracks inventory levels, expiration dates, temperature, power status, and door ajar events. . If any of these fall out of specification, Helix automatically alerts Promega’s Technical staff for prompt resolution.
