PRLog - Jan. 5, 2012 - HORSHAM, Pa. -- Innovative bio-decontamination technology now interfaces with market leading data logging system to provide robust and secure information capture for the life science and pharmaceutical markets.
Bioquell, leading hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) environmental bio-decontamination specialist, has developed an interface for its latest generation Bioquell Z-2 HPV system and Yokogawa's data acquisition and display station - DXAdvanced Daqstation. This new interface designed to link to the DX1000 and DX2000 series of data recorders allows key parameters to be logged by the Yokogawa devices, providing a simple and secure method to store the key bio-decontamination cycle data. Additionally, the Yokogawa station does not have to be directly linked to the Bioquell Z-2 as the information can be transferred over a computer network.
The Yokogawa DX1000 and DX2000 devices can also be supplied to be 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. This feature is widely required throughout the pharmaceutical industry.
Commenting on the new interface, Oliver Cumberlege, head of Bioquell research and development, said, "With more and more regulations and standards being introduced into life science operations and pharmaceutical manufacturing processes, clear and accurate data logging has never been more important. This new interface provides users with an ability to record our HPV bio-decontamination cycle using their own Yokogawa Daqstation systems. This will help to provide confidence of the Bioquell microbial eradication process through a separate auditable data logging system."
