BioControl is pleased to announce the development of a ground-breaking new instrument and software platform that combines HACCP and hygiene monitoring with powerful program management capabilities. The MVP ICON is a next-generation instrument for monitoring key HACCP parameters including ATP, pH, temperature, conductivity and chemical concentration. An industry first, the MVP ICON Dashboard software provides key program analytics, updated in real-time, that provide essential performance data critical to managing a quality program.
The MVP ICON features a unique software dashboard, which serves as a control panel, providing quality assurance professionals a quick overview of key control metrics, assuring their HACCP plans and sanitation protocols are being followed and properly executed. The dashboard provides insight into vital criteria for a sanitation program, such as, the amount of ATP swabs used in comparison to a set target, whether failed results have been adequately re-cleaned and re-tested, and even when the MVP ICON’s next calibration is due. The software also features original print-and-present HACCP reports to reduce the amount of time Quality Managers spend analyzing HACCP trending data and preparing for audits.
“The industry’s needs for HACCP and hygiene program management have evolved over the years and, once again, BioControl has developed an innovative, integrated solution to meet these needs,” said Phil Feldsine, CEO of BioControl Systems. “Simply monitoring ATP levels is no longer sufficient. Utilizing these data to verify that quality objectives are being achieved and improved upon is essential in today’s regulatory climate. The MVP ICON paves the way for Quality Managers to accomplish this goal.”
The MVP ICON instrument features a sleek, lightweight design and innovative touch-screen. Test points can be organized into sample plans to efficiently conduct testing throughout a facility and re-test tracking ensures testing complies with standard operating procedures. The ability to randomize test points eliminates testing bias and adds another management tool for ensuring program compliance. Data integrity is assured by password protection for altering or deleting results.
