Product News: EMD Millipore Launches Millitrack® Compliance, a Unique e-Solution for Lab Water Purification

09 Jul 2013

EMD Millipore, today announced the availability of Millitrack® Compliance, a novel e-solution designed to allow regulatory compliance and optimization of laboratory performance for the company's Milli-Q® Advantage and Milli-Q® Integral lab water purification system users. Millitrack® Compliance is the first electronic “solution” that enables water purification compliance with worldwide regulatory requirements. As a result labs can improve data quality, increase performance and work towards paperless solutions.

Millitrack® Compliance software is included on all new Milli-Q® Advantage and Milli-Q® Integral water purification systems, and can be enabled using an activation key provided by EMD Millipore.

In regulated laboratories, instrument qualification is a requirement. It is becoming increasingly important for lab water system users in regulated industries worldwide to comply with guidelines such as the FDA's Title 21 CFR Part 11, or similar requirements set by other global regulatory organizations.

Lab Water system qualification services, performed by EMD Millipore's qualified, trained engineers in partnership with customers, establish an initial level of compliance. Millitrack® Compliance has been designed to bring EMD Millipore water purification systems one step further in the compliance process.

"Activation of Millitrack® Compliance, combined with our qualification services, will allow Milli-Q® Advantage and Milli-Q® Integral users to comply fully with global regulatory requirements," notes Jean Mahooti, responsible for EMD Millipore Lab Water Compliance services. "This e-solution enables labs to achieve good archiving practices and ultimately offers full compliance for users' water systems," he adds.

A lot of lab equipment is unable to provide electronic data according to the criteria of the regulatory agencies. Labs are forced to keep paper records of daily results - and then archive those records.

"Electronic data recorded and archived in the manner required by the regulatory agencies is becoming essential for laboratories. The built-in Millitrack® Compliance e-solution is the optimal solution for companies who want to move towards a zero-paper environment where all instruments will automatically generate and store information safely," Mahooti concludes.

In addition to making compliance easy, Millitrack® Compliance was also designed to facilitate work in the lab and boost lab productivity. Millitrack® Compliance offers remote monitoring and advanced diagnostic capabilities, which will allow laboratories to save time and increase productivity while minimizing downtime.
