Xplore and Novatek to provide tablet PC for cleanrooms

The Novatek EM-Mobile solution reduces time in the pharmaceutical environmental monitoring process

Xplore Technologies, a US manufacturer of robust tablet computers, is partnering Novatek International to provide the Novatek EM-Mobile for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

The Novatek EM-Mobile combines a tablet PC equipped with software that provides real-time electronic data to increase efficiency in environmental monitoring and manufacturing processes.

Running on an Xplore iX104C5 DMCR (Dual-Mode Clean Room) tablet, the Novatek EM-Mobile solution can be used in the sensitive environment of cleanrooms, while providing the real-time information needed to manage the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. It is dustproof, waterproof, and can be sanitised using standard chemical disinfectants. It is also 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 cleanroom standards

The new Novatek EM-Mobile streamlines the manufacturing process by facilitating real-time labelling, 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 reporting, trending and facility/cleanroom mapping capabilities.

“Through the partnership with Xplore Technologies, we are able to further cater to the pharmaceutical industry by creating a completely mobile product that improves operational efficiency, reduces risk and improves quality in the environmental monitoring and manufacturing process,” said Mike O'Grady, Director of Sales and Marketing for Novatek International. “Xplore not only makes the most rugged tablet on the market but also meets stringent cleanroom standards – a major factor in our decision for partnering with the company.”

Integrating with Novatek International's environmental monitoring management software, the Nova-EM, the Novatek EM-Mobile is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. 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.
