On-Demand Webinar: Bio-fluorescent Particle Counters: Continuous Monitoring Tools for Highly Controlled Water Systems

Senior Principal Scientist -BioVigilant
Azbil North America Research and Development
Dr. Allison Scott is a senior principal scientist specializing in the BioVigilant IMD product line at Azbil North America Research and Development, Environmental Particle Solutions. She has been a member of the Azbil BioVigilant team since 2010, where a majority of her work has focused on the evaluation of the company’s rapid microbial detection technology, its diverse applications in air and water monitoring, and in supporting end users in its implementation. She is actively involved in an industry work group focused on increasing the knowledge, use and acceptance of bio-fluorescent particle detection technologies like the IMD system, and has co-authored a number of technical articles and posters on the subject. She has over four years of additional biologic detector experience gained through work on an infrared-based sensor for use in the detection of microbes in water supplies. She earned her joint doctorate in materials science and engineering from the University of Arizona and in materials chemistry from the University of Rennes.

Bio-fluorescent particle counters (BFPCs), like BioVigilant’s IMD-W Online Water Bioburden Analyzers, enable the real-time and continuous monitoring of bioburden levels in PW, WFI and controlled water systems. This webinar will provide an overview of BFPC technology for water systems, discuss what these systems are and are not capable of, and provide data from a highly controlled and a continuously ozonated water system. Information also is shared on considerations for establishing alert and action levels and the effectiveness of these levels to identify out of specification conditions.
