Metech Instrument Organiser

Metech Instrument Organiser (MIO) is a web based instrument organiser for Element Metech's customers. All data are extracted from Element Metech's database and are updated automatically when calibration or service is performed at Element Metech. To have access to MIO, you will need an agreement with Element Metech.

The MIO web is easy to navigate. It consists of four pages, Start page, Instrument list, Instrument and Basic data. The Instrument list page shows a number of instruments, selected from a performed search or a shortcut. The Instrument page shows one instrument from the list. Here you can step forward or backward in the list. A new search gives a new instrument list with another selection.

Page - Instrument list

The Instrument page list shows a list of instruments. The list consists of instruments selected by the shortcut "List all instruments with next calibration" or from a search with "Search mode". As default after login, instruments due for calibration up to and until the end of next month are listed.
A list can be sorted, ascending or descending, by selected columns and then downloaded as a pdf-file for local printing. Click one instrument in the list and you will be directed to the Instrument page where detailed information about the actual instrument can be found.

The instrument page shows all information about one specific instrument. From this page you can step forward and backward within the actual instrument list. Use search to change the contents of the list. More instrument detail information are found under the tabs "Instrument information", "Service", "Purchase" and "Loan". For each instrument, there is a history table, listing earlier events, e.g. calibration, repair etc. From the history table, calibration certificates can be downloaded as pdf-files (only for calibrations performed by Element Metech). New events can be added by the user and calibration reports can be uploaded for later browsing.

Data transfer uses encryption with 128 bits and uses a certificate issued by Verisign. The certificate can be viewed from your web browser (in Internet Explorer 6, click the padlock in the lower right corner).
