Vaisala Announces New 2012 Seminar Series in US and Canada

HELSINKI, FINLAND--(Marketwire - May 16, 2012) - Vaisala has added a new seminar to its popular Humidity seminar series. "Monitoring & Mapping cGMP environments" was created to help GxP-compliant facilities reduce the risk of deviations being observed during audits and inspections. The new seminar reviews the relevant GMP regulations and guidances around temperature and humidity mapping and monitoring and includes a workshop where participants will get hands-on experience of temperature and humidity validation by Vaisala's experienced validation expert, Paul Daniel.

"The monitoring and mapping seminar will focus on teaching a risk-based approach to creating compliant mapping and monitoring processes," said Daniel. "Our goal is to help seminar attendees refine and focus their validation methods on what matters most to FDA inspectors and to make the most of their validation resources."

Bruce McDuffee is Vaisala's Senior Humidity Measurement instructor and has been giving the seminars throughout North America for several years. "Our Humidity seminars always play to a full-house and people often attend more than once because we give fundamental knowledge on one of the most difficult parameters to measure."

Humidity 201 includes information on humidity sensor and temperature sensor technologies, best practices in measuring dew point in compressed air, and more.

Seminar attendee Ken Pellegrino, Clinical Engineering Supervisor at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary said, "The Vaisala seminar was the most professionally presented, organized, and well run event that I have attended in a long time. My co-worker and I were thoroughly impressed. The information and handouts were beyond expectation and full of information. The food and snacks were excellent, only to be topped off by our winning the draw for a Vaisala handheld meter that was desperately needed by our non-profit hospital. It was a great educational experience and fun event!"

In 2012 Vaisala's North American series of seminars take place in Montreal Canada, San Juan Puerto Rico, Minneapolis MN, Boulder CO, Boston MA, and San Diego CA. There is no cost for either the Humidity or the cGMP Monitoring & Mapping seminars and participants are welcome to attend both days or one day only. For more information, visit
