High Definition Instrumentation
High definition imaging equipment such as electron microscopes and NMR’s offer a whole new world previously unseen. A side effect of increased resolution is that vibration tolerances in the lab environments are more stringent – even the slightest levels of vibration can alter accuracy, reproducibility and quality control: critical factors to the success of research. Micro-vibration is part of a body of environmental threats that surface from the world of physics, each contributing to lab disruption. We call these threats enviro-markers, and they also include ultra-sonic sound and audible sound. Some of these threats are beyond human perception and caused by common factors such as human activity, base building systems, and other laboratory equipment.
Moment’s Continuous Lab Monitoring (CLM) process comprehensively monitors and digitally documents environmental conditions so that the stakeholders of research have a roadmap to fully auditable and reproducible research.
