Monitoring Systems: Sorting Out Wireless

December 2, 2011 10:53 am | by Vaisala

Selecting a monitoring system for temperature, humidity and other parameters is no easy task. One of the most complicated decisions is selecting the connectivity that will allow the sensors to speak to a central processing unit. In this article we simplify the challenge by describing the most common methods of connecting sensors to a monitoring system. Then we list eight key considerations for selecting a wireless option that will work with your application.


Humidity Measurement in Cleanrooms: The Devil is in the Details!

December 2, 2011 10:51 am | by Vaisala

Creating and maintaining upper and lower limits of temperature and relative humidity in the cleanroom is no small feat. Measurement devices play a small role in the overall picture, but problems with measurement devices can cause significant headaches for cleanroom operators. This paper discusses selection and use of appropriate humidity measurement equipment for cleanrooms and is relevant to anyone in the cleanroom community who has struggled with humidity issues.

Regulatory Review and Analysis of Independent Monitoring Systems

October 21, 2011 10:55 am | by Vaisala

International GMP guidelines set standards for independent systems for production, storage, and distribution of medicines. Government agencies are revising their GMPs to use common language and align with these international standards. The new GMP from China’s State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA), effective March 1, 2011, is a recent example. This paper examines the importance of independent systems for monitoring and for control from a regulatory perspective, guides to managing risk to product quality and the consequences of noncompliance.

8 Steps to Validating-Mapping a Chamber

September 22, 2011 12:24 pm | by Vaisala

Periodic mapping of conditions within environmental chambers (including refrigerators, freezers, stability chambers, and warehouses) is critical for compliance in FDA-regulated applications, where validation of conditions such as temperature, and sometimes humidity, is mandated. This application note recommends some options to help meet cGMP requirements for validation projects. These are broad guidelines only, and most recommendations are based upon using data loggers as the sensing device.
