HACCP Management just got a whole lot easier – Introducing the testo 250
It’s time to welcome testo’s latest recruit; the all New testo 250 HACCP management system. Thanks to this innovative new system, for the first time it is possible to 100% digitally control all measurements, checks and documentation in the context of HACCP. The testo 250 truly provides a break-through solution to a number of issues experienced by members of the food safety industry. Here’s some more information:
Key Advantages include:
- Track the status of all tasks and processes in an instant – Every step is automatically documented and updated.
- Always be prepared for audits or inspections – All data is securely stored and available at a moment’s notice.
- Saves you time and money – HACCP processes are managed by planning and collecting data efficiently.
- No more paperwork – All processes are managed digitally so there is no longer need for manual administration.
100% HACCP. 0% Paper.
The Complete HACCP solution
Quality is crucial for all companies in the food industry. In 1959, the HACCP concept was created by NASA and the Pilsbury Corporation to ensure the highest level of food safety for the first manned space flights. Its objective is to avoid possible dangers in food production, in order to protect the health of consumers. Since the documentation of all processes and quality data is crucial in HACCP, up to now the concept could only be realised with huge quantities of checklists, forms and documents. This becomes a problem when, in cases of audits or complaints, clearly assigned proof needs to found quickly.
With the testo 250 spot checks have never been simpler
Finally manage HACCP with ease
The HACCP management system testo 250 uses paper-free documentation of HACCP processes, and supports the guided set-up of a HACCP plan based on the Codex Alimentarius. With it companies can trace all quality data on a single device and massively improve the efficiency of their HACCP processes. Recordings can then be used as proof of activity, so you can be certain produce is being correctly monitored.This results in a considerable advantage for companies. In short, having more efficient HACCP processes will save them both time and money.
Using a completely digital system also minimises human errors which can occur when filling out checklists by hand. Responsible quality managers can then trace all quality data at the touch of a button, ensuring they are always prepared for unexpected complaints or audits.
Existing processes and integration
A major advantage of the HACCP management system is it can quickly be combined with an existing wireless LAN. As soon as an internet connection is set up, all processes, proofs and measurement values will be collated and stored via the testo cloud. There they are securely stored and protected from data loss and manipulation.
Cockpit, Control Unit and Check: The components of testo 250
With the testo 250 HACCP Cockpit – the web-based control centre of the system – the quality manager defines the HACCP processes and correction measures, as well as all measurement and checking tasks. With the Cockpit the user can analyse all measurement data, and view the status of set tasks.
Control Unit and probes
The compact testo 250 HACCP Control Unit was developed for the on-site staff entrusted with measurement and documentation tasks. It consists of a high-performance tablet with a durable protective cover, specially developed for use in rough, humid and hectic surroundings. To make optimum use of the Control Unit, the user can incorporate a temperature probe to take measurements. There are two compatible probes available; the testo 102-1 (standard wired plug in probe) and the testo 104IR Bluetooth (Infrared and penetration thermometer connected by Bluetooth).
Finally the testo 250 HACCP Check App is pre-installed on the tablet and guides the user safely through each individual step of the HACCP process. Measurement values are either input directly or via Bluetooth. If measurement results are critical or limit values are exceeded, the App immediately picks up on this and provides instructions on corrective measures. In addition, documentation using photos, scanning of barcodes and identification of users and locations via NFC technology are implemented.
