Stability chambers are an indispensable part of any laboratory, that are used to store and study the stability of products under simulated environmental conditions. These chambers are used in a variety 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 reliable, stability chambers must be calibrated, validated, and qualified. Stability Chamber Calibration in State College, PA We use precise calibration standards to ensure quality performance within every chamber. We use these standards to ensure NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed your 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 documented, 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. In order to perform calibration, you must verify a stability chamber's performance against a set of standards and making adjustments in order to achieve the intended specifications. Most calibration procedures involve verifying temperature, humidity, and pressure: Temperature calibration involves verifying the reliability 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 reference thermometer, which is located inside the chamber. If there is a discrepancy, we'll make adjustments until the temperatures are the same. 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 verifying the pressure readings in the stability chamber. In this case, we use a reference barometer, and adjustments are made until they show the same thing. Calibration is required to ensure that the settings 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 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 State College, PA A reliable stability chamber validation and qualification in State College, PA will: Include a list of instruments used for qualifications Deliver documented evidence detailing the instruments adherence to correct calibrated state and standards Full qualification services in State College, PA are typically described in terms of 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 instruments are in the right spot, that electrical components are properly connected, and that it can maintain the necessary temperature and humidity control. Operational Qualification (OQ) is meant to provide documented 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 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 how a chamber works. 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 chamber can hold up as long as you need it to. The PQ process also includes a review of the operating and maintenance processes to make sure they are adequate. The PQ process may also include observation of the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to make sure that any issues are identified and taken care of swiftly.
