Xplore and Novatek Partner to Provide the Novatek Environmental Monitoring Mobile Rugged Tablet Solution Specialized for the Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Industry
The Novatek EM-Mobile solution creates efficiency by reducing time in the pharmaceutical environmental monitoring process.
AUSTIN, Texas – April 15, 2013 – Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), the manufacturer of the world’s most powerful, longest-lasting and rugged tablet on the market, and Novatek International announced the Novatek EM-Mobile, the latest environmental monitoring mobile application. The Novatek EM-Mobile combines a rugged tablet equipped with software designed specifically to provide real-time electronic data to increase efficiency in the environmental monitoring and manufacturing processes for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry.
Running on an Xplore iX104C5 DMCR (Dual-Mode Clean Room) rugged tablet, the Novatek EM-Mobile solution can be utilized in the sensitive environment of clean rooms without impact, while providing the real-time information needed to manage the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. It is dustproof, waterproof, and can be sanitized using standard chemical disinfectants without damaging the product. It is impervious to harsh cleaning solvents and contaminants of all types, a major benefit needed for clean room operations.
“Our partnership with Novatek further highlights Xplore’s commitment to delivering tailored rugged tablets built to meet the sophisticated demands of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries,” said Mark Holleran, president and chief operating officer of Xplore Technologies. “The synergy between hardware and software, between Novatek and Xplore, demonstrates how the merging of the latest technologies can be applied for the advancement and improvement in laboratory operations.”
The new Novatek EM-Mobile greatly increases operational efficiency for pharmaceutical professionals. The device streamlines the manufacturing process by facilitating real-time labeling, collection and tracking of environmental monitoring, utility monitoring and product bioburden samples. The system provides completely secure and compliant electronic data management. It also allows pharmaceutical professionals to create accurate and meaningful analysis through the software’s robust reporting, trending and facility/clean room mapping capabilities.
“Through the partnership with Xplore Technologies, we are able to further cater to the pharmaceutical industry by creating a completely mobile product that improves operational efficiency, reduces risk and improves quality in the environmental monitoring and manufacturing process,” said Mike O’Grady, director of sales and marketing for Novatek International. “Xplore not only makes the most rugged tablet on the market but also meets stringent clean room standards—a major factor in our decision for partnering with the company.”
Integrating with Novatek International’s environmental monitoring management software, the Novatek EM-Mobile solution module is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations, which enables it to serve as the system of record for all environmental monitoring and utility monitoring information. The complete package consists of a wireless barcode scanner, wireless barcode printer, a stainless steel cart and mount that can be used to store and transport sampling media, and various air sampling and particle counter equipment.
