Billerica, Mass. - April 29, 2008.
Paired with the RF ValProbe™, the world’s first real time, wireless validation system, Kaye Labwatch can now offer real time temperature, pressure and humidity data display without wiring. In addition, system extension is greatly simplified, as there is no requirement for costly and disruptive wiring installation.
Amphenol Advanced Sensors' Labwatch is widely acknowledged as a labor-saving system for monitoring, alarming and reporting on environmental status in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors. It provides the information needed for internal analysis and for documentation to comply with regulatory requirements, specifically with those of FDA regulation 21 CFR Part 11. It also maintains a secure archive of monitored values from all sensors and creates an audit trail of alarms and actions taken by the system and system operators. Typical monitored parameters include: pressure, temperature, humidity, light, both visible and UV, airflow, CO2 and the open/shut status of doors.
The incorporation of the RF ValProbe™ into the Labwatch system allows users greater flexibility, significant time savings and reduced risk of data analysis errors. The RF ValProbe™ system consists of RF wireless loggers, a base station and appropriate software. The loggers provide high accuracy measurement of temperature, pressure and humidity. Data is collected from many loggers over a wide area and Mesh networking technology ensures that no data is lost, by permitting loggers to route data to another logger for subsequent forwarding if the direct path to the base station is blocked. It is the integration of exceptionally reliable and robust RF Mesh technology with the state-of-the-art measuring capabilities of Amphenol Advanced Sensors' existing RF ValProbe™ instrument that has allowed this breakthrough in validation metrology. The software and data reporting features that accompany the RF technology provide regulatory-compliant text and graph reports, eliminating the need to download data to an Excel spreadsheet. Encryption guarantees data protection.
The Labwatch system incorporating RF ValProbe™ will find extensive application monitoring installations such as stability rooms, freezers, refrigerators, incubators, cold rooms, water baths, clean rooms, laboratories and warehouses and meets a long-sanding need of the industry.
