Temperature Mapping Validation Services
Included with our turnkey lab monitoring solution, Full Spectrum Group offers temperature mapping validation services.
Validation and qualification of your laboratory’s thermal equipment and controlled spaces is critical to Title 21 of the Food and Drug Administration’s Federal Code of Regulations. Full Spectrum Group’s temperature mapping validation services ensure that your ULT freezers, cold rooms, incubators, autoclaves, and lyophilizers are continuously monitored. Your compliance will never lapse again. Our real-time reports are accessible at any time (from any mobile device or computer). These services offer our customers peace of mind and relief from one less nuisance in the lab.
Temperature fluctuations can occur in any space, regardless of the quality of the storage area. The best cold rooms in the world have temperature shifts. The key is maintaining temperature within an acceptable range. Temperature affects samples (and other sensitive materials), so temperature mapping is integral to monitoring and compliance. Temperature mapping validation monitors temperature fluctuations over a given period of time. If your laboratory is due for a compliance audit, the necessary reports are a click away. Our service will validate the integrity of the laboratory storage areas anytime. You can know—night or day—that your equipment is in good hands.
We Are ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited.
Equipment and monitoring calibrations within our scope of accreditation comply with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 quality standards. We reduce your laboratory’s risk. That peace of mind allows you to focus on the task at hand—the science. Our processes are verified through proficiency testing and interlaboratory comparisons. We are confident in the quality of our calibration services, which are all traceable to NIST.
How Our Temperature Mapping Validation Service Works.
Temperature mapping starts with placing pre-calibrated, real-time data-logging temperature sensors in your climate-controlled storage space. You’ll run specified temperature validation tests, and complete a full defrost cycle with your equipment. Our turnkey lab monitoring includes an easy-to-use mobile app. There’s no waiting around for the tests to complete. You can check your temperature mapping equipment from your mobile device. After the initial setup—and calibration of your sensors—you can continue to monitor from your mobile devices. That way you can run temperature mapping validation as needed to ensure sensors continue to operate as expected. Best of all, you can keep these sensors in place year round to ensure your temperature mapping validation stays compliant. With real-time alerts and reports, you’ll know precisely when deviations occur.
When To Perform
Temperature Mapping Validation.
To be clear, there’s never a wrong time to conduct temperature mapping. Routine and external factors, such as weather, are obvious signs. There are also other, specific times where temperature mapping validation is essential.
For example, the acquisition of new equipment is a crucial time to do temperature mapping. Like any new piece of equipment, the first step after installation is to perform standard-qualification tests. Many of these tests will be dependent upon the equipment’s purpose.
Relocated equipment also requires validation. After a move, it’s important to make sure the equipment is compliant and operational. Any move can impact the unit’s performance. It is critical to complete temperature mapping validation after the unit is secure in its new home. For similar reasons, repaired equipment should also spark the need for a validation cycle. This fact holds true for laboratory freezers, cold storage, incubators, and more. If your ULT freezer experienced an outage, your freezer needs temperature mapping validation. Once it’s repaired and running, give us a call.
If your controlled space needs to be FDA compliant, validation is necessary at regular intervals. Routine validation proves that you follow proper storage regulations. Everything from tissue samples to cosmetic supplies will require temperature mapping validation for FDA compliance, and FSG is very proud to offer our customers continuous validation at all times.
Our Monitoring Solutions team can calibrate your sensors from afar.
When your monitoring system requires calibration, we will send you a new set of calibrated sensors to replace your old ones. To return the old ones, we provide pre-paid, stamped packaging. Once you install the new sensors, our team will complete tests to make sure the sensors are reading the environment properly. Is your team too swamped with science to run these tactical, operational tests? Our team at Full Spectrum Group is happy to manage it all for you! We have customizable contracts for our remote temperature mapping validation and calibration services. Contact our Monitoring Solutions team today for more information.
