Web App for Secure Storage Management: 24/7 Wireless Lock Control against Unauthorized Access
Chrometrix Systems, a laboratory equipment supplier
Chrometrix Systems conducted a tender to select a development service provider based on a range of criteria. The service provider was required to possess a solid background in the mobile development space, as well as demonstrate thorough understanding of hardware and electronic component design and integration. Softeq stood out through its impressive track record in the domain along with proven ability to meet the designated budget and time expectations.
The client was seeking to increase the sales revenue by providing the buyers of the humidity/temperature monitoring equipment a value-added service — possibility to access, process and manage data gathered by the equipment either via a mobile device or a dedicated server.
Softeq developed a comprehensive data acquisition and management system, consisting of a combination of hardware and software components for aggregating, processing, and storing information retrieved from the humidity and temperature sensors installed in a laboratory.
Temperature and Humidity Data Gathering Process
The DPA is an Android or Windows desktop app designed to process data received via the WLR. It transforms the sensor aggregated data into a readable format. Supplemented with a graphic presentation, the data is sent to the LIMS server over the Bluetooth or USB connection in an XML file format.
The app operates in two modes: as a standalone mobile app storing all the processed data locally on the phone; or as a client-server app, provided the LIMS is installed in the target lab, transferring the processed measurements data to the server.
The LIMS is designed to store the results of measurements and respective stats received in an XML file format as text and graphic files.
The system is implemented based on a SaaS model to be able to deal with large data sets and numerous accounts. The retrieved information is delivered via web services in an XML and JSON file format.
The system supports:
The solution is built in compliance with regulatory documents stipulating requirements to the computer-based laboratory equipment (CFR — Code of Federal Regulations Title 21).
For managing product development, Softeq’s team employed Scrum, an iterative and incremental agile software development framework.
The team accomplished the first phase of the LIMS unit on time and on budget with additional improvements scheduled for the second phase. The sensor and DPA unit are nearing completion.
