Manual calibration vs Yearly calibration service
Like any machinery, regular inspections are crucial to ensure temperature loggers accuracy and reliability. The majority of data loggers on the market do not include a calibration service, meaning customers have to make an arrangement with their supplier or a third party to ensure that their devices are calibrated each year. In cases where users forget or simply miss the annual deadline for calibrations, there is a risk of reduction in accuracy and reliability of the units. For companies working within food or pharmaceutical industries this could potentially lead to non-compliances with GDP (Good Distribution Practices). Read more about the importance of calibration here.
A standard calibration at Testo costs approximately 90€ per unit. The process can take up to 4-8 days during which customers have to arrange alternative solutions, e.g. by having spare data loggers in place. Eupry relies on a subscription based concept. Once a year Eupry will replace Eupry’s data loggers with new, calibrated loggers and take the previous loggers back to the calibration lab. This annual service is included in the premium subscription fee. In the standard subscription the service is limited to three data loggers per year though.
Eupry’s laboratory is accredited according to the internationally recognised ISO / IEC 17025 standard for calibration laboratories. This accreditation is recognised by almost all European countries. Regular inspections performed by the approved accreditation body, DANAK guarantees that Eupry offers accurate calibrations. Read more about how Eupry calibrates here.
Testo for Pharma industry vs. Eupry with 21CFR Part11
If the company has to live up to 21CFR Part11, which almost all companies in the pharma industry has to, it can be difficult to make use of Testo Saveris 2, as the product has no option to enable a 21CFR Part11 functionality. On the other side, ALL Euprys products are designed to be used in the pharma industry and a 21CFR PART11 functionally is build in. Moreover, IQ, OQ and PQ documentation can easily be found as well.
Testo and Eupry both deliver alert notifications via SMS and email, which is a massively time saving feature. Testo’s Advanced plan includes 25 SMS messages per logger per year. However, in cases where multiple staff members share an account, options of purchasing additional SMS packages are available.
With Eupry Premium, there are 730 SMS messages included per device per year as well as unlimited email alerts. There is practically no limit on the number of SMS and email alerts that can be sent each year with Eupry.
With Eupry’s system it is possible to grant users access to different locations with user-permission levels. This means that an owner can manage several locations with multiple data loggers at each location at the same time. The owner can also choose which users should be given access to which locations and loggers, consequently enabling the owner to enforce a strict control of their Eupry setup.
With Testo Saveris 2 it is possible to have different user-permission levels, but it is not possible to manage several locations at the same time.
This is an important feature when comparing prices since it is possible to use the same Eupry software at numerous locations rather than just one. The feature is especially relevant for larger laboratories or pharmacy chains where a quality manager manages several laboratories or pharmacies.
