FACILITY MONITORING AND THE BIOTRAK™ REAL-TIME VIABLE PARTICLE COUNTER

How do you know the critical processing environment is in control? Traditionally, a facility monitoring system like TSI’s FMS software with Remote Particle Counters detects change and adverse trends in airborne particulates in real-time. Critical process parameters such as differential pressure, temperature and humidity are also monitored. Detecting change, adverse trends and enabling a real time response is aligned with the risk reduction principles of ICH Q9 Quality Risk Management (QRM). Until now, the only environmental parameter that could not be measured in real-time and arguably the most important is airborne microbiological contamination.

TSI’s BioTrak® Real-Time Viable Particle Counter challenges this reality.  Now it is possible to detect airborne microbiological contamination during critical processing in real-time. And, the instrument easily integrates into a facility monitoring system, enabling a real-time response to airborne viable particle excursions.

BioTrak Particle Counter first counts airborne particles compliant to ISO 21501-4 at a 28.3 lpm sample flow rate. It then analyzes each particle for viability providing a real-time count. Finally, it collects all optically analyzed particles on a collection filter for laboratory-based speciation. BioTrak – the real-time viable particle counter that delivers airborne viable particle count data you can trust, moving you towards real-time quality assurance and process control.
