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 industries, 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 Vancouver, BC We use precise calibration standards to ensure quality performance within every chamber. The use of these standards will ensure that your instruments are calibrated to NIST compliance (NIST National Institute of Standards and Technology), in order to meet or exceed manufacturer’s 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. Our calibration readings determine whether a unit is within tolerance, and allows units that are within tolerance to continue operations. 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 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 in order to achieve 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 is most often completed by contrasting the readings of the stability chamber with a reference 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 temperatures are the same. Humidity calibration follows a similar procedure as temperature calibration. A calibration hygrometer is put inside the stability chamber, and the readings are compared with the readings of the stability chamber's humidity control system. 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 settings within the chamber stay precise over time. This helps to ensure that you can rely on the results of your stability testing, and it also helps to avoid simple mistakes that could render your results invalid. Calibration should be performed by a qualified and experienced technician. The frequency of calibration depends on the stability chamber usage and the level of precision required. Download Calibration Brochure Stability Chamber Validation and Qualification in Vancouver, BC A true stability chamber validation and qualification in Vancouver, BC should: Provide a list of instruments used for qualifications Provide documented evidence the chamber’s instruments are in a current calibrated state Qualification and validation are a three-part process: Installation Qualification (IQ) provides documented verification that key aspects of the unit follow the installation design intention. The IQ process includes an evaluation of the installation documentation, such as wiring diagrams, to confirm that the equipment has been installed according to the manufacturer's requirements. 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 include 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 performs as intended, either in a simulation or with an actual product inside. Where OQ validates components, PQ validates a chamber's performance. The PQ process takes several weeks or months, to confirm that the equipment operates as intended 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 may also include tracking the equipment for indicators of malfunction, to ensure that any problems are identified and addressed quickly.
