AntTail

Temperature Mapping made transparent, traceable and compliant

Automate your GMP/GDP compliant mapping report generation

Introduction

When AntTail’s wireless sensors are placed in your storage facility for Thermal Mapping they can be combined in one or more groups to reflect different storage areas. Thereafter the data collection and generation of the compliant mapping report is completely automated. Are you interested to see how the automated generated mapping report and data export looks? Fill in the form and download a mapping report and zip file for the WHO Rack area example shown below.

Wireless Data Collection

Big advantage of using wireless sensors is that you can leave them in place and still have the data and generate mapping reports. The AntTail sensors use a Bluetooth protocol to communicate to our AntCloud where all sensor data is collected and the mapping report is generated. You can choose for on-line or offline monitoring. You can follow your storage area temperatures directly online in the AntCloud portal. For on-line connection you need one or more gateways depending on the layout and size of the storage areas. For off-line use the sensors can be synced quickly and easily to the AntCloud by a smartphone using our AntTail App.

Efficient Mapping Process

AntTail’s mapping service with easy read out of sensors and fast, automated report generation allows for an efficient and iterative mapping process during your storage qualification. If the first mapping result is not compliant during e.g. IQ, no need to re-install all the sensors. Adjust your heating/cooling equipment and go for a second run, or a third or use all the sensors to get the cooling and heating equipment adjusted to the correct settings.
Sensors can also be left in place after OQ/PQ for summer and winter mapping or continuous mapping.

Generating a Mapping report

When the temperature data is in the AntCloud, generating a mapping report and signed data exports is a just few clicks away. You choose the time period and the temperature limits you want to use and press GO. A few seconds later the email is dropped in your inbox with the generated mapping report and secured data exports in one .zip file.

Mapping report features

  • Mapping report according to: WHO Temperature mapping of storage areas, Annex 9, No. 961-2014

    Maximum and minimum for each sensor.

    Average or Mean Kinetic Temperature for each sensor.

    Hot and Cold spots for each monitor area/ group of sensors.

    Flexible time period definition: from hours up to 7 days.

    Flexible temperature limits.

  • No need to consolidate data over all sensors. Direct result for a group of mapping sensors.

  • Every temperature-sensor export is secured by a hash signature. No more manual validation and signing of each data export necessary.

  • All secured data exports and the pdf are stored in one .zip file that is emailed to the user. All results available within minutes.

  • References to calibration certificates included in the mapping report and certificates included in the zip file

Convert Mapping in to Monitoring

After the mapping has been completed, the Cold and Hot spot sensors can be converted to on-line monitoring sensors with an alarm profile and notification settings. This requires a license fee from AntTail but the sensors can stay in place and perform in the new role as required.

Consultancy and Rental option

AntTail can help you determine the location and the number of sensors according to the WHO regulations. Send us your questions and we get in touch with you. For mapping, AntTail also provides a rental option for sensors with calibration certificates.
