VERNON HILLS, Ill.—Cole-Parmer has released Masterflex peristaltic pumps with MasterflexLive, which is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11.
The firm said its new technology brings the Internet of Things (IoT) to pump applications, providing pump operators with the ability to remotely control and monitor pumps without the need to be on site. When enhanced security, data control, and electronic records are critical to the operation, companies can meet 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 compliance with a low-cost subscription service.
Cole-Parmer said MasterflexLive is a secure, cloud-based platform for controlling and monitoring select Masterflex L/S and I/P Peristaltic Pumps by PC, tablet or smartphone. Pump operators can monitor and adjust critical processes running 24/7 from anywhere with a data connection.
This new smart technology provides real-time control of all pump parameters, including speed, flow rate, dispense volume and more. According to the firm, push notifications provide alerts for operating conditions and error messages. A hands-free operation allows control of pumps operating inside cleanrooms, glove boxes or isolation chambers. Setup and activation of the pump to access the features takes only minutes with two easy steps: register a new account, then enter the pump's information.
By subscribing to gain access to 21 CFR Part 11, Cole-Parmer said users will have the ability to robustly manage data, maintain digital records and control access to data. Furthermore, they will have the added benefit of a programming function, and the ability to save and recall protocols prior to cascading operational parameters to all pumps via synchronization.
The firm said these pumps are ideal for process and research facilities, water and wastewater treatment (municipal) plants, industrial plants, food and beverage, chemical and mining, electrical, and anyone who wants to adopt the latest technology and tools to enable them to have flexibility, enhanced accuracy, and maximized efficiency.
