Mapping Capabilities – Performance Validation’s equipment is maintained in a calibrated and validated state. We have Vaisala wireless data logger and Kaye wired systems for temperature and humidity mapping. Our equipment inventory also includes self contained biological indicators and an incubator for verification of sterility processes. Our internal procedures have been developed to govern the use of equipment to ensure a consistent approach to equipment set up and data retrieval.

Mapping Competencies – Performance Validation has provided environmental mapping support to hundreds of clients across multiple industries for wide ranging applications as follows:

Frequently Asked Questions - Mapping Services

1. How many data loggers do you have available?

Performance Validation has 90 temperature/humidity data loggers, 81 temperature only data loggers, and 7 low temperature data loggers in current inventory.  Availability is dependent upon current and upcoming project needs.  Contact PV for current availability to meet your specific needs.

2. How much does it cost for equipment rental?

Equipment rental cost is dependent upon quantity and duration.  PV has a standard weekly and monthly rental rate, but discounts are available for large quantity and/or long duration rentals.  Contact PV for a customer specific price quote based on your needs.

3. What kind of lead time do you need to schedule a mapping/rental?

All of our projects are maintained on a first come/first served schedule.  PV works hard to accommodate all of our customer’s needs. Certainly, the sooner you contact us for upcoming needs, the more likely we will be able to meet them.  Staff and/or equipment availability are our constraints, so the more flexibility you have the more likely we can meet your need.  Due to the demand for and calendar restraints of seasonal mapping work, needs for January-March and July-September require as much lead time as possible.  Contact PV to schedule your upcoming mapping needs today.

4. Does your equipment calibration meet our requirements?

PV maintains all of our mapping equipment on an annual calibration schedule.  The equipment is multi-point calibrated across the entire instrument range by NIST standards to manufacturer specifications by accredited 3rd party metrology labs.  All equipment is provided with current calibration documentation.  PV has an internal CAPA program to assess and report any calibration failures for impact to our customers.  While this is acceptable for most customers, a separate post-use calibration of equipment is available for additional cost.  Contact PV for additional details. 

5. Is your mapping equipment 21 CFR Part 11 compliant?

Yes, PV only provides 21 CFR Part 11 compliant systems for thermal validation within a cGMP environment.  In addition to being specified as such by the manufacturer, the Kaye and Vaisala/Veriteq systems have been internally validated by PV and have been fully documented to be compliant with current regulations regarding data recording, reporting, and storage.  PV can provide copies of the internal validation documentation to our customers or can readily share this documentation as part of a supplier audit, upon request.
