Stability chamber calibration is a crucial aspect of ensuring that the conditions in a stability chamber are within the intended range and satisfactory for carrying out stability testing. 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 test samples of pharmaceuticals, cosmetic, food, and chemical products to determine their shelf-life and effectiveness over a period of time. Stability Chamber Calibration in Madison, WI We understand the critical role that calibrations have in your regulated industry, which is why we use extremely precise calibration standards. The use of these standards will ensure that your instruments are calibrated to NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed your needs. We can also offer programs that are tailored to fit your needs, such as single point or loop calibrations and verifications. Our service is provided as a 3-point "as-found" calibration and 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. 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. The most common parameters that need to be calibrated include temperature, humidity, and pressure: Temperature calibration involves verifying the accuracy of the temperature readings in the stability chamber. This is most often completed by contrasting the readings of the stability chamber with a reference thermometer, which is placed inside the chamber. If there is a difference between the two readings, we'll make adjustments until the temperatures match. Humidity calibration is similar to temperature calibration. A calibration hygrometer is placed inside the stability chamber, and humidity readings are compared just as temperature readings are. Pressure calibration involves verifying the pressure readings in the stability chamber. In this case, we use a calibrated barometer, and adjustments are made until all of the readings match. Calibration is required to guarantee that the conditions within the chamber stay consistent over time. This helps to ensure that you can trust the results of your stability testing, and it also helps to avoid simple mistakes that could force you to have to carry out the study again. You need a certified and experienced technician to make sure the calibration is done right. It is recommended to calibrate a stability chamber every 6 months to 1 year, depending on how often it is used. Download Calibration BrochureDownload Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Madison, WI An expert stability chamber validation and qualification in Madison, WI should: Provide a list of instruments used for qualifications Deliver documented evidence detailing the instruments adherence to correct calibrated state and standards Qualification and validation include a three-part process: 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 spot, that it is properly connected to electrical and other services, 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 empty chamber). The OQ process may also consist of tests to evaluate the performance of the equipment under different settings. The OQ process also includes verifying that the chamber's alarms and safety systems are functioning correctly. Performance Qualification (PQ) ensures and documents that the unit performs as intended, either in a simulation or with an actual product inside. Where OQ validates the equipment, PQ validates a chamber's performance. The PQ process takes several weeks or months, to confirm that the equipment operates as intended and meets the specified requirements for its intended use. The PQ process also includes an assessment of the operating and maintenance procedures to ensure that they will achieve the continued operation of the instruments. The PQ process may also consist of tracking the equipment for alarms of malfunction, to make sure that any problems are detected and taken care of quickly.
