Research & Product Development
Years of time and effort go into research and development at Colleges and Universities. The samples, energy put into the research, and resulting products are invaluable, and often times, irreplaceable. Controlling air pressure, temperature and humidity levels, and air flow have great impact on research at these facilities and labs. Consistent, accurate monitoring of storage areas, units and environments is required to maintain the integrity of products and protect the time put into the research.
A Partnership in Efficiency
Immediate. Flexible. Complete.
To maintain efficiency, we begin with a 24/7 continuous monitoring system complete with immediate alert notification via e-mail, text or phone. This means a member of the team gets notified the moment a system enters into alarm, granting them time to properly address the situation, and react in a manner that saves the product involved. No more manual checks for temperature readings or the possibility of missing an outage. The automated system will continually monitor this information for you and alert you in real-time through the software located on your computer system.
For facilities that handle Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSPs), new regulations have enforced greater attention to clean rooms for the safety of personnel. Pressure monitoring devices will be instituted in every clean room with immediate alarming capabilities, and particle counters will be installed to automatically track particle counts. This information is easily retrievable through your software for monthly particle counts.
Whether you have a few refrigerators or hundreds, no two facilities are identical, and customization is the key to ensuring your continuous monitoring system is where you need it, when you need it. For this reason, alerting can be varied by department, piece of equipment, time of day, day of the week, condition parameters, delivery method and escalation protocols.
The flexibility and scalability of the system means that it can monitor any location, from cold storage to incubators, in any size facility. From a small, single facility, up to a complex, multi-location facility, your continuous monitoring system can adapt and grow as you do. With the option to function as a standalone system or a fully networked environment that can simultaneously monitor hundreds of appliances, you do not need to worry when it comes time to add refrigerators, freezers, or other appliances in your facility. The system has unlimited capacity, making it easy to adjust to where you are and what you need.
“I have been in and around the very complex Automation and Integration world over 35 years and am known not to be easily impressed. I was truly impressed by Alberto Lola – (Regional Project Manager) for his extensive knowledge, problem solving skills, working with integrity and pride on behalf of your establishment, installation techniques, and making this project implementation in RECORD TIME.”
It is recommended that your Continuous Monitoring (CM) system undergoes a “major tuneup” at least once annually. Although there are monthly or quarterly alarm checks and preventive maintenance schedules to complete, an annual probe calibration to an NIST or ISO 17025-traceable standard and a comprehensive system check/validation will ensure the system is…
