We offer multiple versions of ValSuite to meet your exact needs. Most notably ValSuite Pro, our FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software that ensures full data integrity.
ValSuite offers features like customized reports with clear pass/fail criteria, test templates, data analysis, monitoring, live data and much more. ValSuite is developed according to GAMP principles and is available in multiple languages for Windows 7, 8 and 10 (32/64-Bit). ValSuite is availabe in four generic versions: ValSuite Basic, ValSuite Medical, ValSuite Plus and ValSuite Pro.
- One software platform for all Ellab equipment
- Combine TrackSense data loggers and the E-Val Pro wired thermocouple system in the same session
- Automatic PDF report generation with clear pass/fail indication
- Can run from a stand-alone PC or networked
- The data analysis tools greatly reduce the time required to locate critical data
- The ability to zoom in the graphs and display multiple windows at a time, simplifies the process of identifying important data
- Multiple calculations, such as min/max, standard deviation, average, delta T and lethality can be calculated using any block of the displayed data – eliminating the need for exporting data and compromising data security
Software Data Analysis Features
ValSuite collects and presents validation data from both the E-Val™ Pro and TrackSense® Pro data logging systems. The data from both systems can be presented and analyzed in the same session.
The software can run up to 160 TrackSense channels or 120 E-Val Pro channels at a time, all of which can be identified and displayed in different groups, such as penetration and distribution. Any grouping or specific channels can be displayed in a separate data block and analyzed. It is also possible to merge individual sessions and run analysis for comparison purposes.
Remote Access & Data Monitoring
You can connect directly to the ValSuite SQL database by using an iPhone with the ValSuite App. An intuitive tool to monitor online data from ETS, E-Val Pro and TrackSense SKY sessions. This functionality is available through an IP address setup via a PC.
The online alarm limit system for the basic parameters of temperature, pressure and relative humidity can be activated through a relay. Thereby providing an input to a SCADA system or any other external, or PC, alarm system. The gathered data is then either presented in a table or graph.
A complete set of reports can be produces containing Pass/Fail criteria, map over measuring positions, current operator and vessel ID, calibration offsets for the probes, data lists and statistical summaries of the data.
ValSuite Pro also allows users to create and save templates for reports in order to meet the specific requirements of tests like EN17665 for moist heat autoclaves, EN15883 for washer disinfectors or NFC 15-140 for stability chambers. These templates can be customized to organize the data and perform calculations to match various criteria. These features greatly reduce the data analysis process.
Once ready, reports can be reviewed using the print preview feature and then be saved as a PDF file.

ValSuite™ Calibration Features
ValSuite is not only a validation software, but also a calibration software. This means that all sensors and probes can be user-calibrated at predefined intervals. Their offset values can also easily be stored in either the software and/or hardware. A report is then automatically generated with the overall calibration results.
Depending on the ValSuite version, you can set the calibration setup to either Manual, Semi-Automatic or Full Automatic calibrations. Various templates can be stored and uploaded at any given time. The identified offset values are linked directly to the sensor ID number, and will be taken into account whenever the sensor is used in future measurements.
Features & Benefits
- Easy step-by-step setup
- Up to 6 calibration points at a time
- Completely compatible with Ellab’s calibration equipment
- Special software versions for other manufacture equipment (OEM)
- Direct downloads of calibration certificates via the Ellab Cloud
Calibration Certificates / Factory Calibration
To secure overall product quality, all equipment manufactured by Ellab is either factory calibrated optionally or by default. We also recommend that sensors receive annual factory calibrations. During factory calibration, the sensor-under-test is compared to reference equipment with full traceability to national and international standards. The data is then saved in the sensor and presented in a calibration certificate.
For several years, the Ellab factory calibration certificates for TrackSense have been available via our cloud solution. These can easily be accessed through V-LIMS or directly from ValSuite by using the sensor ID number. All certificates are digitally signed and saved in a database which fully complies with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
