Aura cameras are the bread and butter of most aura readers today. The best ones in the industry have sophisticated systems that can precisely capture the aura image through photographs and biofeedback. However, they’ll only continue to perform well if you maintain them well. Like all cameras, they can be damaged by excessive dust and bad clean-up. Here are some aura photo camera maintenance requirements you should keep in mind.

  1. Store The Camera’s Carefully

Aura readers often neglect to store their camera carefully. Many simply place a sheet over the device to protect it from dust at the end of the day. They do this because they don’t want to disassemble and reassemble the setup every day before they open the business. Unfortunately, this isn’t good for the aura photo camera and can cause great deal of harm to the equipment. If you want to prolong the camera’s life, you must store it in the case it comes with.

  1. Read the Instructions Manuals before Use

People rarely ever read the manufacturer’s instruction manual that comes with every device, including an aura photo camera. This manual contains important information on how to use the camera and maintain it. These manuals also explain what you need to do in the event of a breakdown or damage. These books will help you use the camera properly and ensure you don’t accidentally damage it.

  1. Clean Before and After Use

Cameras, like all technological devices, tend to attract dust. This can compromise the quality of the picture and cause problems to the camera function as well. The best way to extend the life of the camera is to keep it clean and ensure the dust doesn’t settle in any moving parts. You just need a soft, microfiber cloth and some camera cleaning solution.

  1. Get Repairs Done by Authorized Personnel 

If your aura photo camera does malfunction, don’t attempt to repair it yourself. You should call your camera manufacturer on the number they’ve provided and follow their instructions. Some manufacturers will send a technician to your location for repairs while other will ask you to mail the camera to their facility to conduct repairs. Make sure that you get the camera repaired by authorized personnel because people who’re not familiar with the equipment might damage it.

  1. Mind the Batteries

A surprising number of cameras are damaged by batteries. If you don’t intend to use the device for a long time, remove the batteries before you pack the device away. If you don’t, the battery will leak and damage the sensitive camera eventually. This damage can’t be easily repaired and in most cases, you will have to replace the device entirely.

If you take these steps, you won’t need to replace your aura photo camera too often and will get years of service out of the device. If you intend to be a part of this industry for a long time, it’s essential to maintain your camera well.

Ever since starting the Art of Manliness in 2008, I’ve wanted to create something that would help readers take our content offline. I never wanted readers just to consume our content, but to put it to use in their lives — to take real action on it. I wanted men to become not just readers, but doers; not just spectators but actors.

I’ve long seen the difficulty in this. We’re bombarded with so much media that it can be downright paralyzing. There are so many options on what to do, you end up taking none of them. Inertia sets in. The restlessness we feel causes us to retreat away from the tangible world and further into our devices, further into our minds. We feel adrift, and our lives feel flimsy, insubstantial, and strangely weightless.

We want to learn new skills, but don’t know where to start. We set goals, but have trouble sticking with them. We want greater challenge and to push back against the age of comfort and convenience we find ourselves in, but there’s nothing there to push against. We want to pursue excellence and become better men, but the path of how to get there seems nebulous and hard to grasp.

Well, after almost a decade of brainstorming, and more than a year and half of dedicated work by the AoM team, we’ve finally created a solution to these frustrated yearnings — a structured program designed to turn your abstract intentions into action. It’s called The Strenuous Life, and it’s essentially a scouting program for grown men.

Sound intriguing? All the details about The Strenuous Life can be found here, including how to sign up for enrollment.

Comprehensive list of what to include on your clinical trial audit checklistObviously, it’s crucial that you stay in compliance during your clinical trials. That’s because failure to do so has enormous and expensive consequences. And yet, on a regular basis, firms find themselves with an FDA 483 for non-compliant behaviors.  Without a doubt, an independent clinical audit for Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is a vital part of product development. The purpose of such an audit is to determine that a clinical trial is being performed in compliance with the approved protocol and other FDA regulations.

What should be on your clinical trial Investigator site audit checklist? Each checklist section described below is a very brief summary of the compliance area. However, it is important to keep in mind that this checklist is not meant to be inclusive of all items that should be examined during an audit.

Protocol Compliance – This ensures that documentation is available to substantiate that the clinical Investigator and the site staff have followed the study protocol approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Institutional Review Board – Documentation of IRB approval of the protocol and any amendments, informed consent documents, advertisements, and other information provided to prospective study subjects must be kept onsite.

Human Subject Records – This is one of the most significant areas of the site audit. Here, the auditor is looking through the study documents and records to make sure that all of the required information is captured and follows the protocol without deviations. Documents reviewed include informed consent forms, medical records, and other source documents.

Other Study Records – Other records pertinent to the study may include administrative study files, correspondence files, master subject list, appointment books, sign-in logs, screening lists, and MedWatch forms.

Informed Consent of Trial Subjects – Ensuring that each subject, or the subject’s legally acceptable representative, has given uncoerced informed consent is essential in every trial. Written IRB-approved informed consent forms, along with any other oral or written information, must be as non-technical as possible and must be understandable to the subject. The written consent form must be revised when new information becomes available that may be relevant to the subject’s willingness to continue participation in the research, and the communication of this information should be documented.

Financial Disclosure – All Investigators and relevant study staff must sign a document disclosing information about their financial interests to the sponsor. This document must be updated if circumstances change.

Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures – If electronic records are being used as detailed in the study protocol, the system used to generate, collect, or analyze the data must be documented and meet the requirements applicable to paper records. Training must also be provided to the appropriate personnel.

Test Article Control – Drug accountability at the Investigator site must be verified. The drug must be received by authorized personnel, properly labeled, inventoried, secured, and stored under the appropriate conditions. The return of any quantities of the drug to the sponsor, or otherwise disposed of, must also be documented.

Record Custody and Retention –Study records must be stored and retained according to the protocol and regulations.

Reports to Sponsor – Investigators always need to keep the Sponsor apprised if there are any safety issues or protocol deviations, as such, this section is used to determine whether required reports have been submitted to the Sponsor in accordance with the study protocol and regulations.

Investigator qualifications and Agreements – Auditors determine whether the Investigator has adequate experience in conducting trials; to ensure that they and their staff have been adequately trained, and that they are knowledgeable of GCP and the applicable regulatory requirements.

Adequate Resources –The Investigator must have sufficient time to conduct and complete the trial safely and adequately. The Investigator shall have an adequate number of qualified staff, and adequate facilities for the foreseen duration of the trial.

Medical Care of Trial Subjects – The Investigator is responsible for the wellbeing of the subjects including oversight of all trial-related decisions and ensuring that adequate medical care is provided to subjects including medical care for any adverse events related to the trial.

Communication with the IRB – Audits shall include verification that the Investigator has written and dated approval from the IRB regarding the research application, written informed consent form, consent form updates, subject recruitment, and any other written information to be provided to subjects.

Randomization Procedures and Unblinding – The Investigator is expected to follow the trial’s randomization procedures. Additionally, if the research is blinded, the Investigator must comply with the protocol requirements to maintain the blind and to promptly document and explain to the sponsor any premature unblinding (e.g., accidental unblinding, unblinding due to a serious adverse event) of the investigational product.

Records and Reports – The Investigator must ensure that all data reported to the sponsor is accurate, complete, legible, and timely. If there is a change or correction, it must be dated, initialed, and explained without obscuring the initial entry. This applies to both written and electronic changes or corrections.

Progress Reports – The Investigator will submit written summaries of the research status to the IRB annually, or more frequently if requested by the IRB. The Investigator must also immediately report all serious adverse events to the sponsor.

Regulatory Essentials – Auditors shall ensure that the regulatory binder contains all of the required documentation which should include, at minimum, Form FDA 1572, protocol, informed consent, Investigator’s brochure, advertisements, enrollment log, and all IRB-approved letters.

Study Staff – Auditors shall review all staff CVs and licenses to ensure that they are appropriately qualified for their delegated roles and have all been properly trained.

Data and Safety Monitoring – High-risk trials may have a data safety monitoring board (DSMB). Safety monitoring reports are reviewed to ensure there are no significant noncompliance issues or any patterns of ongoing or unresolved compliance.

Record Archiving –Reports, essential documents, and data has been neatly organized and kept in an appropriate and secure place.

Premature Termination or Suspension of a Trial – If the trial is prematurely terminated or suspended for any reason, the Investigator must promptly inform the trial subjects, assure appropriate therapy and follow-up for the subjects, and, where required by the applicable regulatory requirement(s), inform the regulatory authority(ies).

Final Report by Investigator – Upon completion of the research, the Investigator must inform the IRB and provide a summary of the research results as well as any reports required by the regulatory authority(ies).
