Environmental-monitoring system offers flexibility
Bob Urbanowski, GE's product manager for Labwatch, says the wireless system improves flexibility and simplifies regulatory compliance for operators. "Users can reconfigure their facilities and still capture all the data they need without always going through full revalidation," he says. The wireless solution enables users to move equipment without necessarily changing the underlying data-collection protocols.The Labwatch system maintains a secure archive of monitored values from all sensors and creates an audit trail of alarms and actions taken by the system and operators. The software is appropriate for monitoring areas such as stability chambers, freezers, and cleanrooms.
System converts tap water to ultrapure water
Users can change the filter at the ends of the ultrapure PODs to eliminate particular contaminants. POD dispensers also can be adapted with contaminant-specific final polishers.
Versatile spray chamber reduces solvent load
Because the device can introduce a sample at –10 °C, it reduces the load of volatile organic solvents on the plasma, Dulude says. A thermocouple feedback loop linked to a Peltier-effect heat-transfer device ensures constant sample temperature.
Operators can control and monitor the IsoMist unit from a computer using a wireless interface or a standard network connection. The chamber creates temperature versus time plots and saves data and results for regulatory compliance.
