Stability chambers are essential pieces of laboratory equipment used to store and study the stability of products under simulated 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 a long period. To ensure that the results obtained from stability testing are reliable, stability chambers must be calibrated, validated, and qualified. Stability Chamber Calibration in Pittsburgh, PA We understand your field might have heavy oversight, which is why we use extremely precise calibration standards. We use these standards to ensure 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 procedure provides a 3-point “as-found” calibration 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. 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. 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 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 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 are the same. Humidity calibration follows a similar process as temperature calibration. A reference hygrometer is put 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. Calibration is required to ensure 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 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. The frequency of calibration is based on the stability chamber usage and the level of precision required. Download Calibration BrochureDownload Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Pittsburgh, PA A reliable stability chamber validation and qualification in Pittsburgh, PA will: Provide a list of instruments used for qualifications Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are within the intended tolerance levels 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 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) 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 assess the performance of the equipment under different load conditions. 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 can reach the temperature, humidity, and pressure settings as intended, either in a simulation or product load. Where OQ validates hardware and software, PQ validates how a chamber works. The PQ process involves conducting a series of tests and evaluations over a set period, 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 make sure they will support the continued operation of the instruments. The PQ process might also consist of monitoring the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to ensure that any problems are detected and addressed quickly.
