Vaisala provides monitoring systems for the life science industry, to ensure accurate measurement and observation of critical environmental parameters.

Vaisala provides monitoring systems for the life science industry, to ensure accurate measurement and observation of critical environmental parameters.

Environmental parameters for cleanrooms, warehouses and medical facilities

The company offers environmental monitoring services for warehouses, cleanrooms, incubators, freezers, fridges, nutraceutical manufacturing, stability chambers, calibration laboratories and hospital pharmacies.

Life science companies need to comply with regulations, validations, audits and good manufacturing practices (GMP) that require maintaining verified environmental conditions within a specified range.

Reliable measurement of environmental parameters and fail-safe continuous monitoring with gap-free data is important for high-quality processes, end-products, and safety.

Vaisala's solutions include humidity, temperature, dew point, carbon dioxide, differential and barometric pressure measurement instruments and data loggers.

The company's support team provides an in-depth understanding of life science environments, network technologies and metrological devices, to provide efficient systems, which exceed compliance requirements.

Temperature monitoring of GxP environments

GxP guidelines and regulations minimise risks to patient safety and ensure product quality and data integrity.

If a finished product is accidently exposed to a range of temperatures, the product may be unsafe for human consumption, which can result in the product being discarded before it can cause any harm.

A temperature monitoring system for GxP environments, managed according to guidelines, will mitigate this type of risk.

Environmental parameters such as temperature and humidity are also monitored.

The company understands how monitoring system works, and how this can impact the success of a business, especially if regulators find monitoring systems unsatisfactory. The company is certified to ISO: 9001 standards.

Triple redundancy data backup to guarantee gap-free records

The system features viewLinc software that provides a user-friendly interface and intuitive monitoring.

Monitoring systems, equipped with independent measurement sites and triple redundancy data backup, guarantees continuous and gap-free records.

In addition, alarms can be added that automatically alert personnel when environmental conditions change unexpectedly.

High-quality monitoring systems will mitigate risks, improve quality, meet regulatory requirements, reduce workloads, and control costs.

Vaisala's solutions for the life science industry combine measurement accuracy and stability, with data protection.

The systems minimise downtime and maximise yield for a range of facilities, including laboratories, warehouses, freezers and incubators.

Reliable measurement of temperature, humidity and CO2

The company's range of transmitters and handheld meters were designed for demanding industrial applications, with excellent long-term stability.

Easy-to-use handheld meters can be used for spot and field checking, as well as calibration of Vaisala transmitters.

Vaisala's range of data loggers are fully validated and designed for GxP-regulated applications.

Data loggers can monitor temperature, humidity, differential pressure, CO2 and door switches for warehouses, cleanrooms, cold storages, blood banks, laboratories and freezers.

End-to-end installation of monitoring systems

Vaisala mitigates operational risks and helps systems fulfill their maximum lifespan to ensure return on investment.

Technicians are available to manage end-to-end installation of monitoring systems, to ensure a quick system launch and deployment with full system functionality, as well as user training.

The company offers on-site installation and operational qualification services to help customers meet regulatory obligations. Temperature and humidity mapping services are also available in Europe, Japan and China.

Calibration and repair services are available worldwide from Vaisala's regional service centres, which provide accreditation, traceability, repairs and upgrades.

Other services include full technical support and training. Training can be organised on-site or conducted online and led by an instructor. Interactive multimedia training tools are also available to support plan holders and enable users to educate themselves on their schedules.
