Stability studies are a critical aspect of ensuring the quality and effectiveness of various products, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, and chemicals. These studies require a controlled environment to test the product's stability under a variety of conditions, and stability chambers are used to provide this environment. The reliability of stability studies depend on the stability chamber's ability to maintain consistent temperature, humidity, and pressure conditions. Stability Chamber Calibration in Minneapolis, MN Calibrations play a critical role in every stability chamber, and our engineers use precise calibrations to ensure perfect performance. Our Engineers calibrate each chamber to NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed your specifications. We can also offer customized programs, such as single point or loop calibrations and verifications. 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 address the problem promptly. Any instruments found outside of calibration can then be calibrated using the manufacturer's 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. The calibration of a stability chamber consists of verifying its performance against a set of standards and making adjustments as necessary to ensure that it meets 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 calibrated 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 follows a similar process as 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 reference barometer, and adjustments are made until all of the readings show the same thing. It is important to regularly calibrate the stability chamber to ensure that the conditions within the chamber stay precise over time. This helps to ensure that you can rely on 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 qualified and experienced technician to make sure the calibration is done right. How often you need calibration is based on the stability chamber usage and the level of precision required. Download Calibration BrochureDownload Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Minneapolis, MN A true stability chamber validation and qualification in Minneapolis, MN should: Provide a list of instruments used for qualifications Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are within the intended tolerance levels Full qualification services in Minneapolis, MN are typically described in terms of 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 correct location, that electrical components are properly connected, and that it can maintain the necessary temperature and humidity control. Operational Qualification (OQ) is utilized for providing documented verification that the systems and subsystems perform as they need to at all anticipated operating ranges (normally performed with an empty chamber). The OQ process may also include tests to assess 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) ensures and documents that the unit can reach the temperature, humidity, and pressure settings as intended, either in a simulation or with an actual product inside. Where OQ validates components, PQ validates a chamber's performance. The PQ process involves performing a series of tests and evaluations over a defined period of time, typically 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 evaluation of the operating and maintenance procedures to ensure that they are adequate. The PQ process might also consist of observation of the equipment for alarms of malfunction, to ensure that any issues are caught and addressed quickly.
