Shepherd turns microbial activity into data. During the test cycle, pressure readings are taken at regular intervals which give rise to a graph that contains data about the microbiological process.

After the test cycle completes, the graph is analysed converting the data produced into useful operational information which is displayed locally to the operator on the control panel.

In conjunction with the local display the information is also transferred to the Cloud where it can be  displayed on any internet enabled computer within the Shepherd dashboard. The entire operational history for Shepherd is available from the moment it enters the lane and starts gathering results.

If an operational issue is detected then Shepherd, via the dashboard, also emails all subscribers to inform them that action is required, allowing rapid response to undesirable situations.
