Stability chamber calibration is a necessary part of ensuring that the conditions in a stability chamber are within the specified range and suitable for carrying out stability studies. A stability chamber is a controlled environment used to test the stability of products under specified temperature and humidity conditions. This chamber is used to house and monitor samples of pharmaceuticals, cosmetic, food, and chemical products to determine their shelf-life and effectiveness over a period of time.

Stability Chamber Calibration in Albuquerque, NM

Calibrations play a critical role in every stability chamber, and our engineers use precise calibrations to ensure perfect performance. The use of these standards will ensure that your instruments adhere to NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed your needs.

We can also fit our services to meet your needs, whether this be calibrations, qualifications, or verificatiopns. Our procedure provides a 3-point “as-found” calibration verification. Our calibration readings determine whether a unit is within tolerance, and allows units that are within tolerance to continue operations. If an instrument is found to be outside of the allowed tolerance, we will inform you of the findings so that you can take the appropriate steps necessary.

Additionally, if the “as-found” readings are not within the manufacturer’s tolerance, the instrument is then calibrated using the manufacturer’s calibration procedure. Once calibration is finalized, the readings of the unit will be documented to detail the units calibration and operation within the manufacturer's tolerance.

The calibration of a stability chamber involves verifying its performance against a set of standards and making adjustments in order to achieve the intended specifications. Most calibration procedures involve verifying temperature, humidity, and pressure:

  • Temperature calibration involves verifying that temperature readings are accurate. This is most often completed by looking at the readings from the chamber against those from a reference thermometer, which is placed inside the chamber. If there is a difference between the two readings, we'll make adjustments until the readings are the same.
  • Humidity calibration is similar to temperature calibration. A calibration hygrometer is placed inside the stability chamber, and the readings are compared with the readings of the stability chamber's humidity control system.
  • Pressure calibration involves calibrating the pressure readings in the stability chamber. To read pressure, we use a calibrated barometer, and adjustments are made until they show the same thing.

Calibration is required to guarantee that the settings within the chamber stay accurate over time. This helps to ensure that you can trust the results of your stability testing, and it also helps to avoid costly errors that could result in the need to repeat a stability study.

You need a certified and experienced technician to make sure the calibration is done right. It is recommended to calibrate a stability chamber at least once a year, or more frequently if it is used frequently or if the results of previous calibrations indicate that it may be necessary.

Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Albuquerque, NM

A true stability chamber validation and qualification in Albuquerque, NM should:

  • Provide a list of instruments used for qualifications
  • Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are in a current calibrated state

Qualification and validation include a three-part process:

  • Installation Qualification (IQ) provides documented verification that key aspects of the unit follow the installation design intention. This includes verifying that the equipment has been installed in the correct spot, that electrical components are properly connected, and that it meets the specified requirements for temperature and humidity control.
  • Operational Qualification (OQ) is utilized for providing documented verification that the systems and subsystems perform as intended at all anticipated operating ranges (normally performed with an unloaded chamber). The OQ process may also include tests to validate the performance of the equipment under different load conditions. The OQ process also validates that safety measures and alarms are operating as they should.
  • Performance Qualification (PQ) is utilized for providing documented verification that the process does what it is intended to do (normally performed with either a simulated or actual product load in the chamber). Where OQ validates the equipment, PQ validates how a chamber works. The PQ process takes several weeks or months, to confirm that the chamber can hold up as long as you need it to.

    The PQ process also includes a review of the operating and maintenance procedures to make sure they will support the continued operation of the equipment. The PQ process may also include observation of the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to ensure that any problems are detected and taken care of swiftly.
