The Common Notification System (CNS) allows the user to monitor an instrument’s status through any networked computer or mobile device with a web browser, thereby increasing walkaway time and process security. The status of the system is immediately visible and the user can easily see if any interaction is needed.
Remote monitoring can be particularly useful if the instrument is in a clean room, biosafety cabinet or cold room and laboratory access is difficult or could risk assay contamination.
The new Freedom EVO® Remote, available on the iPhone App Store, allows convenient monitoring through an iPod touch or an iPhone. The application displays a list of all instruments in the network and their respective status, as well as detailed run information. This is useful not only for the operator running a system, but also for lab managers needing an overview of their instruments.
