AMECARE M2M Service Remotely Monitors SPECTRO ICP Spectrometers to Ensure Integrity, Avoid Downtime

SPECTRO_ARCOSKleve, Germany — March 24, 2015 — SPECTRO Analytical Instruments’ AMECARE M2M service offers the continuous remote monitoring of select SPECTRO ICP spectrometers to proactively ensure their integrity of operation and reduce the risk of downtime. The service is offered in combination with SPECTRO’s AMECARE Preventative Maintenance programs.

SPECTRO ICP spectrometers are equipped with intelligent diagnostic capabilities that report on the integrity of critical system components. With these capabilities, the cause of an instrument breakdown can be isolated and identified to speed system recovery. The technology also provides information for use with preventative intervention.

With the AMECARE M2M (Machine-to-Machine) service, diagnostic information is transmitted from the SPECTRO ICP spectrometer to SPECTRO’s central M2M server, where it is analyzed to proactively identify and flag any potential component maladjustment, degradation, or failure. If an issue is identified, the local SPECTRO service organization is alerted about the situation and the customer is contacted directly — ensuring that potential problems do not go unnoticed and are addressed proactively.

Components monitored by the M2M system include the Plasma Generator (torchbox and sample introduction system); Optical System; ICALization process; Instrument power supplies, readout and other electronic components. Benefits of the continuous monitoring include dramatically reducing the risk of instrument failure and the cost of the resulting downtime — as well as extending the life of the instrument.

User confidentially is ensured throughout the design and operation of the M2M system. The service transmits only instrument hardware and ICAL process relevant information — while analytical methods and analytical results are excluded. The system is unidirectional and secure — other than the communication handshake, information cannot be transmitted to the instrument from the remote M2M server — thus ensuring instrument encapsulation for maximum system integrity.

The AMECARE M2M intelligent diagnostic service is available on the following SPECTRO ICP spectrometers:

  • SPECTRO ARCOS FHE12 / FHS12
  • SPECTRO ARCOS 165 FHE16 / FHS16
  • SPECTRO ARCOS FHE22 / FHS22 / FHM22
  • SPECTRO ARCOS 160 FHE26 / FHS26
  • SPECTROBLUE FME16
  • SPECTROBLUE FMS16
  • SPECTROBLUE FME26
  • SPECTROBLUE FMS26
  • SPECTROBLUE FMT26
  • SPECTRO GENESIS FES17
  • SPECTRO GENESIS FEE17
  • SPECTRO MS MSS01

The whitepaper is titled “Best Practices for a Highly Functioning, Compliant Institutional Biosafety Committee.

“Last year there were several lapses in safety practices at Federal laboratories, drawing significant attention and compromising the public’s confidence in biomedical research,” said whitepaper author Betsy Gilman Duane, MS, RBP, CBSP, Practice Director, Life Sciences at Environmental Health & Engineering (EH&E).

“But each Institutional Biosafety Committee is unique. After satisfying the requirements of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and their local communities, the best practices recommended in the whitepaper can enhance the experience for IBC members, facilitate compliance as well as science, and provide opportunities for improvement for Institutional Biosafety Committees as the cornerstone of their institution’s Biosafety Management System,” she stated.

The 15 best practices addressed in the whitepaper involve the scope of the Institutional Biosafety Committee, data collection, training, leadership, conflicts of interest, project and procedure reviews and audits, biosafety officer qualifications, public communications, disposition of materials, and others.

Gilman Duane is past president of the American Biological Safety Association (ABSA), facilitated the establishment of the New England Biosafety Association (NEBSA), and is on the Board of the Eagleson Institute.

Brooks CSP8 Heat Sealer Processes Smaller Numbers of Tubes to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles and Sample Degradation

CHELMSFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, February 10, 2015 — Brooks Life Science Systems, the global leader in automated cold-chain sample management for drug discovery and biostorage applications and a division of Brooks Automation, Inc. (Nasdaq: BRKS), has introduced the CSP8 heat sealer for 96-well REMP tubes. The easy-to-use instrument permits the sealing of eight REMP tubes at a time, avoiding the need to seal an entire 96- tube rack.

The CSP8 uses Brooks’ industry-proven technology to produce tightly welded, pierceable seals. The REMP tubes’ small volumes allow for multiple aliquots of individual samples —  avoiding freeze-thaw cycles.

“The CSP8’s ability to economically seal small numbers of tubes, plus its capability to process individual aliquots, eliminates the multiple freeze-thaw cycles that lead to sample degradation,” said Christopher McNary, vice president and chief commercial officer, Brooks Life Science Systems. “Our instrument permits fast vein-to-freezer times in applications with distributed biosample collection and subsequent storage in central biobanks.”

The CSP8’s ability to seal a row of eight tubes also eliminates the cost and waste of sealing all of the tubes in a partially filled plate. In addition, the compact size of the instrument’s polyurethane seals maximizes storage density. The CSP8 heat sealer processes 0.3 ml and 0.9 ml, 96-well REMP tubes.

The CSP8 heat sealer is available for purchase from Brooks’s sales representatives. For more information, visit http://www.brooks.com/products/life-science-systems, e-mail blss.sales@brooks.com,  call 1-858-527-7000 or follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

New Whitepaper Helps with Selection of ICP-OES Spectrometer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New Multiview

Kleve, February 4, 2015— A new whitepaper helps purchasers of new ICP-OESspectrometers through the critical — and complex — process of selecting the best appropriate plasma viewing interface for their intended applications. The paper is available to download from SPECTRO Analytical Instruments at http://goo.gl/VuH6qA.

The new whitepaper, “Selecting Your ICP-OES Analyzer’s Plasma Interface: Axial-View, Radial-View, Dual-View or New MultiView,” recommends that when considering a new ICP-OES analyzer purchase, users should focus their selection of the plasma interface based on the range of their applications and the elements they expect to analyze. Doing so, and understanding the benefits and drawbacks of each available viewing technology — axial-view, radial-view, dual-view, or MultiView — will help determine which is the best fit for their analytical tasks. In the whitepaper, each of the differing plasma viewing technologies are defined, their strengths and weaknesses are highlighted, and examples of typical applications are provided.

The paper also discusses a recent development in plasma viewing techniques — the sequential MultiView technology  — that transcends the various disadvantages of the “dual-view” approach by eliminating the use of added mirrors or periscopes. Instead, the MultiView solution enables the user to simply shift the direction of the plasma torch into a new axial or radial orientation with a relatively simple changeover that takes about 90 seconds. As a result, MultiView offers full axial sensitivity and full radial precision without any dual-view compromises — for the functional equivalent of two dedicated, fully optimized analyzers in one. The new technology is currently available in one version of the new SPECTRO ARCOS analyzer — making the spectrometer the only ICP-OES instrument that offers both axial and radial plasma views, but without bias or compromise.
