Cleanroom Monitoring with Secure Data Capture

Delphin Systems’ Universal Inputs Log Every Measurement Value

In the pharmaceutical industry, continuous and secure data acquisition and documentation is crucial for production and storage requirements, and also for research and development. According to FDA Part 11, data acquisition and monitoring systems within cleanrooms must operate in compliance with GAMP/GMP guidelines.

Additionally, measurement data and limit values for parameters such as Temperature, Humidity, Particle count and Pressure need to be acquired, monitored, and archived in a secure format. Furthermore, any user intervention relevant to pharmaceutical processing must also be recorded to an audit trail.

Delphin’s Expert and Message series data loggers–combined with ProfiSignal software–offers pharma companies a complete system covering data acquisition through to real-time monitoring, reporting and user management.

Application Features

  • Secure acquisition of all measurement data from cleanrooms and pharmaceutical environments
  • Independent data storage within the Delphin device, parallel to PC storage
  • Flexible setup of monitoring functions using email, fax, text messaging or switch outputs
  • Customizable process visualization and reporting using ProfiSignal
  • Scalable system for large and small systems

Customer Example

One particular challenge for data acquisition systems is testing the long-term stability of pharmaceutical substances. These substances are stored in climate chambers and deep freezers whose environmental conditions all need to be recorded, archived and documented. Likewise, all changes in operational parameters – such as preset temperatures and threshold values – also need to be recorded in a reliable and secure way.

As a good example of this, many hospital chemist facilities are equipped with Delphin cleanroom monitoring systems. These integrated systems of user and alarm management are popular for their flexibility and ease of use. Automated generation of alarm protocols takes place weekly. Users have also set monthly changes in measurement values including optional comment input. Meanwhile all digital documents are redundantly-recorded.

  • Part 11-compliant pharmacist monitoring
  • Cleanroom monitoring
  • Dispersed system for pharmaceutical monitoring tasks
  • Monitoring of production facilities in accordance with FDA
