Xplore Technologies Corp., a manufacturer of rugged tablets, and Novatek International have partnered to offer the Novatek EM-Mobile, an environmental monitoring mobile application. The solution 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 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.
“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,” said Mike O’Grady, director of sales and marketing for Novatek International.
Novatek EM-Mobile is designed to increase 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.
Integrating with Novatek International’s environmental monitoring management software, the Nova-EM, the 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.
