Frequently, software and hardware interfaces are complicated, require too much user interaction, and in the worst case require more time and verification than manual entry. Additionally, when the equipment manufacturer updates drivers or models, the interface must as well be updated. Novatek International (Montreal, Canada) has market leading interfaces that are standard and use the latest technologies. The partnership and co-development agreement between Novatek and Merck KGaA Darmstadt, Germany helped create the first bidirectional interface, fully compliant to CFR-21 part 11, with the MAS-100 NT® microbial air sampler.
Currently there is a strong trend towards full automation of EM sample planning, data analysis and trending. Automation will reduce time required to collect, report and trend the data while complying to data integrity requirements and eliminating the need for paper-based double checks.
MAS-100 NT® sampler integration with Novatek Environmental Monitoring Software provides a completely compliant solution by removing the manipulations from the device and controlling it from the computerized systems with full traceability, user access controls, user rights and time stamps.
