Stability chambers are an indispensable part of any laboratory, that are used to store and study the stability of products under simulated environmental conditions. These chambers are used in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food, to ensure the safety and efficacy of products over time. To ensure that the results obtained from stability testing are reliable, stability chambers must be calibrated, validated, and qualified. Stability Chamber Calibration in Champaign, IL Calibrations play a critical role in every stability chamber, and our engineers use precise calibrations to ensure perfect performance. We use these standards to ensure NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed your specifications. We can also fit our services to meet your needs, whether this be calibrations, qualifications, or verificatiopns. Our service is provided as a 3-point "as-found" calibration and verification. The “as-found” readings are documented and verified to be within the manufacturer’s tolerance, if found within the tolerances the device is then returned to service. Any instrument outside of tolerance will be recorded, and we will immediately notify you so that your team can take the appropriate actions. If an instrument's "as-found" readings are outside of the recommended tolerance level, the instrument can be calibrated using the manufacturers calibration procedures. After completing the calibration, the instrument’s “as-left” readings are documented using the same three points from the calibration to ensure the instrument is reading within the manufacturer’s tolerance. In order to perform calibration, you must verify a stability chamber's 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 consists of verifying that temperature readings are accurate. This is most often completed by looking at the readings from the chamber against those from a calibrated thermometer, which is located inside the chamber. If there is a difference between the two readings, the stability chamber temperature control system can be adjusted until the readings are the same. Humidity calibration is similar to temperature calibration. A calibration hygrometer is located 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. In this case, we use a reference barometer, and adjustments are made until they match. It is important to regularly calibrate the stability chamber to guarantee that the conditions within the chamber remain consistent over time. This helps to ensure that the results of stability testing are reliable, and it also helps to avoid simple mistakes that could render your results invalid. Calibration should be performed by a certified and experienced technician. 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. Download Calibration BrochureDownload Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Champaign, IL An expert stability chamber validation and qualification in Champaign, IL should: Provide a list of instruments used for qualifications Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are in a current calibrated state Full qualification services in Champaign, IL are generally described in terms of three different parts: Installation Qualification (IQ) includes a series of tests and evaluations to confirm that the equipment has been installed according to the manufacturer's specifications and that it meets the requirements for the intended use. This includes verifying that the equipment has been installed in the right location, that electrical components are properly connected, and that it can maintain the necessary temperature and humidity control. Operational Qualification (OQ) provides documentation that the unit and subsystems perform to the intended, anticipated, and need operating ranges. The OQ process may also consist of tests to validate the performance of the equipment under different settings. 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 components, 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 an assessment of the operating and maintenance processes to ensure that they are adequate. The PQ process could also include monitoring the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to make sure that any issues are detected and taken care of promptly.
