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 San Francisco, CA We use precise calibration standards to ensure quality performance within every chamber. 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 your specifications. 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. Any instrument outside of tolerance will be recorded, and we will immediately notify you so that your team can take the appropriate actions. Any instruments found outside of calibration can then be calibrated using the manufacturer's calibration process. 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 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 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 reference hygrometer is placed inside the stability chamber, and humidity readings are compared just as temperature readings are. Pressure calibration involves verifying the pressure settings in the stability chamber. To read pressure, 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 for an extended period. This helps to ensure that you can trust the results of your stability testing, and it also helps to avoid simple mistakes that could result in the need to repeat a stability study. Calibration should only be done by a certified and experienced technician. It is recommended to calibrate a stability chamber every 6 months to 1 year, depending on how often it is used. Download Calibration Brochure Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in San Francisco, CA An expert stability chamber validation and qualification in San Francisco, CA should: Include a list of instruments used for qualifications Deliver documented evidence detailing the instruments adherence to correct calibrated state and standards Qualification and validation include 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 adheres to requirements for the intended use. This includes verifying that the instruments are in the correct spot, that electrical components are properly connected, and that it meets the specified requirements for temperature and humidity control. Operational Qualification (OQ) is meant to provide recorded verification that the systems and subsystems perform as they need to at all anticipated operating ranges (normally performed with an unloaded 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) 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 how a chamber works. The PQ process takes 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 procedures to ensure that they will support the continued operation of the equipment. The PQ process may also consist of observation of the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to ensure that any issues are detected and addressed swiftly.
