Stability chambers are an indispensable part of any laboratory, that are used to store and study the stability of products under controlled environmental conditions. These chambers are used in a wide range of fields, 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 accurate, stability chambers must be calibrated, validated, and qualified. Stability Chamber Calibration in Oakland, CA 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 follow to NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed manufacturer’s needs. 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. Our calibration readings determine whether a unit is within tolerance, and allows units that are within tolerance to continue operations. Any instrument outside of tolerance will be noted, and we will immediately notify you so that your team can take the appropriate actions. 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. In order to perform calibration, you must verify a stability chamber's performance against a given tolerance and making adjustments as necessary to ensure that it meets the desired specifications. Most calibration procedures involve verifying temperature, humidity, and pressure: Temperature calibration involves verifying the accuracy of the temperature readings in the stability chamber. This can be done by comparing the readings of the stability chamber with a reference thermometer, which is put inside the chamber. If there is a difference between the two readings, the stability chamber temperature control system can be adjusted until the readings match. Humidity calibration is similar to temperature calibration. A reference hygrometer is located inside the stability chamber, and humidity readings are compared just as temperature readings are. Pressure calibration involves calibrating the pressure settings in the stability chamber. In this case, 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 guarantee that the conditions within the chamber remain accurate for an extended period. 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. 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. Download Calibration BrochureDownload Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Oakland, CA A reliable stability chamber validation and qualification in Oakland, CA should: Consist of calibration records of all instrumentation used during the qualification Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are in a current calibrated state Full qualification services in Oakland, CA are usually described in terms of a three-part process: Installation Qualification (IQ) provides documented verification that key aspects of the unit adhere to the installation design intention. The IQ process includes an analysis of the installation documentation, such as equipment specifications, to confirm that the equipment has been installed according to the manufacturer's specifications. 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 evaluate the performance of the equipment under different humidity and temperatures. The OQ process also includes verifying that the chamber's alarms and safety systems are functioning correctly. Performance Qualification (PQ) is utilized for providing documented verification that the temperature, humidity, and pressure settings work in the correct and anticipated manner (normally performed with either a simulated or actual product load in the chamber). Where OQ validates components, PQ validates a chamber's performance. The PQ process involves conducting a series of tests and evaluations over a defined period of time, typically several weeks or months, to confirm that the equipment operates as it should and meets the specified requirements for its intended use. 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 tracking the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to make sure that any problems are caught and taken care of quickly.
