FDA Guidance for Industry - Sterile drug products produced by aseptic processing - Current Good Manufacturing Practice, September 2004. • User interface screen for immediate notification of system status to increase productivity. • Unique vacuum filler provides both safety and the highest level of automation. bioMérieux’s Total Solution IDENTIFICATION & TYPING from Routine to Investigation • New reader eliminates many manual steps: - An automated internal barcode scanner provides a validation of what the user has entered into the software - An automated loading mechanism eliminates manual steps by the user increasing efficiency - Reads every 15 minutes for greater speed in identification - Automatically prints the results when available, if configured to do so, giving you flexibility. • Intuitive icons require less technician training resulting in higher productivity. • Navigation tree shows actual status of all cards increasing speed of results and resolution of issues by staff. Optional software includes the VITEK®2 Compact Validation Package to get your laboratory up and running in the shortest time possible. • 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. • System uses Windows XP and security. • Designed for simple temperature verification. • SRF, Supplemental React File, a customizable feature to track facility-specific organisms. • Completed tests are automatically ejected into an ergonomic trash container • These organisms may be automatically transferred to this area of the software and saved. This eliminates typographical errors and increases confidence and quality of results. NETWORKING Anywhere with any Hardware • Complete networking guide for remote print, view, back-up, restore and archiving. Api ® • Freedom to use your hardware. VITEK® 2 Compact SIMPLISTIC WORKFLOW DiversiLab® Navigate to “virtual cassette” workspace. Inoculate tubes and place in cassette. Scan the appropriate card and place it in the cassette. Scan in the isolate identification number, or use the keyboard to type it in. Place cassette in filler. Place cassette in reader. Results print automatically when card is complete. Finished cards are automatically sent to waste bin for safe disposal.
