LET ELEMENTAL MACHINES MONITOR YOUR LABORATORY EQUIPMENT
With the start of December, we are officially in the holiday season! There are only about three weeks left to wrap up year-end projects, whether you are trying to meet a manufacturing quota or conclude a milestone project, as many companies tend to operate on a skeletal staff or even shut down during the last week of the year. After all, many of us look forward to relaxing and enjoying the holiday week with our family and friends.
Would you like to try out a robust laboratory equipment management system for peace of mind and security during the upcoming winter break? It’s easier than you think. No long install times required! Elemental Machines offers a user-friendly, plug-and play system that can have you up and running in less than a day. Our support team can help you with setup to get the most out of the system over break. Contact us by December 15, 2018 for a free trial to try out over break, and we will make sure you are all setup in time to enjoy the holidays!
If you manage a lab or facility, you may be thinking about putting some measures in place for laboratory equipment monitoring over break. There are simple precautions you can take to minimize the chances of emergencies that require immediate attention over (and thus put a damper on) winter break. For example, it’s a good idea to make sure that any equipment that needs to run over the holidays (such as freezers, cold rooms, etc.) is in good working order. If possible, you could schedule a PM or maintenance call before break. It’s also a good idea to do a material/inventory round up the week before break. Make sure that environmentally sensitive materials are stored in proper conditions, with extra safeguards in place to protect high value samples and/or inventory. Lastly, it's a good idea to set up a rotating schedule to identify contact persons, should any action be required.
But even with the best preparation, there’s always a chance something goes wrong over break. New technologies offer innovative solutions to prevent incidents from ballooning into catastrophes. Internet of things (IoT) sensors can passively monitor your laboratory assets for you. Compound that with the power of cloud technology to access data anytime, anywhere and receive real-time alerts in case anything shifts from your pre-configured parameters. If you have plans to be lying on the beach over break, no worries, it’s easy to setup a responsible delegate who will be more local during this time. Of course, you have the option to receive updates too, even on the beach!
When you are back in the office in the new year, connected platforms take the guesswork of trying to figure out if everything operated smoothly while you were gone. Or if the New Year’s Eve snowstorm resulted in a power outage, in which case our system's cellular and battery backup can still collect data for you. Cloud technology provides secure, reliable, and comprehensive data records. Big data analytics also work in the background to provide you with data trends, statistics, equipment alerts and resolutions. Even better, data reports can be generated to support 21 CFR Part 11 compliance for FDA-regulated environments.
So, what are you waiting for? Let our product give you peace of mind over the holidays. Wishing you and your team a relaxing holiday break and a wonderful start to the New Year!
