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 time. To ensure that the results obtained from stability testing are accurate, stability chambers must be calibrated, validated, and qualified.

Stability Chamber Calibration in St. Paul, MN

We use precise calibration standards to ensure quality performance within every chamber. Our Engineers calibrate each chamber to NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed manufacturer’s specifications.

We provide several different programs to ensure that you recieve the service you need for your stability chamber in St. Paul, MN. 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. 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. Once calibration is finalized, the readings of the unit will be documented to detail the units calibration and operation 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 desired specifications. The most common parameters that need to be calibrated include temperature, humidity, and pressure:

  • Temperature calibration consists of verifying that temperature readings are accurate. This can be done by contrasting the readings of the stability chamber with a calibrated thermometer, which is put inside the chamber. If there is a discrepancy, we'll make adjustments until the readings match.
  • Humidity calibration is similar to temperature calibration. A calibration hygrometer is put 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 ensure that the conditions within the chamber stay precise over time. This helps to ensure that the results of stability testing are reliable, and it also helps to avoid costly errors that could force you to have to carry out the study again.

Calibration should only be done by a qualified and experienced technician. How often you need calibration is based on the stability chamber usage and the level of precision required.

Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in St. Paul, MN

A reliable stability chamber validation and qualification in St. Paul, MN should:

  • Include a list of instruments used for qualifications
  • Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are within the intended tolerance levels

Qualification and validation include three different parts:

  • Installation Qualification (IQ) is intended to provide documented verification that all key aspects of the design, procurement, and installation adhere to the design intention. The IQ process includes an evaluation of the installation records, such as equipment specifications, to confirm that the equipment has been installed according to the manufacturer's specifications.
  • Operational Qualification (OQ) is meant to provide recorded 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 humidity and temperatures. The OQ process also validates that safety measures and alarms are operating as they should.
  • Performance Qualification (PQ) is intended to provide 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 hardware and software, PQ validates a chamber's performance. The PQ process involves performing 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 processes to make sure they will support the continued operation of the instruments. The PQ process may also include monitoring the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to make sure that any issues are caught and addressed promptly.
