Brookfield’s TexturePro CT Software Now 21 CFR Compliant

December 2, 2013

Texture Pro CT software from Brookfield is now 21CFR Part 11 compliant. Related features include controlled user access to specific test methods and data security for safe and permanent record keeping. This version is ideal for use by regulated industries, such as pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, foods, and personal care products.
    
TexturePro CT is a powerful, intuitive, and robust application that helps users perform detailed texture analysis on test samples of various shapes and sizes. The primary advantage gained from use of the software is automation of test procedure and removal of operator bias from the test. Real-time graphic plotting lets operators create custom reports and graphs directly from a menu screen during tests.
    
The newly released version 1.3 is an optional item available for purchase and use with all CT3 texture analyzer orders. TexturePro CT software, which connects directly to your computer via USB, is designed specifically for use with Brookfield’s CT3 texture analyzer. Customers currently using v1.2 can upgrade to v1.3 free of charge at www.brookfieldengineering.com/products/software/updates/TextureProCT/setup.htm.
    
Major enhancements include the capacity to run on 32- or 64-bit operating systems, the addition of a new rupture test used to determine the break point of a sample, and a reorganized, expanded probe, and fixture selection.
    
The operator’s ability to manipulate data has been simplified too. Unlike previous versions, Brookfield’s TexturePro CT v1.3 now lets users import QTS & LFRA data files, use “date range” and “test type” filters when performing data searches, as well as allowing batch processing of data files from the database. TexturePro CT v1.3 also gives operators access to a new troubleshooting tool, the Technical Report Display option, which records all commands passing between computer and CT3 texture analyzer into a LOG file that can be emailed to Brookfield for interpretation.
