Temperature Only or Temperature/Humidity Stability Chambers

Posted on Oct 12, 2012 in Shelf Life Stability Chambers

temperature humidity stability chambers for product stability and ICH shelf life testing

These stability chambers are designed to provide controlled temperature or temperature and humidity testing environments. These chambers offer FDA and ICH stability testing compliance at a reasonable price. These controlled environments are crucial for the product and packaging shelf life stability testing. These accelerated shelf life tests are required in the cosmeceutical, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries, among others.

Each stability test chamber has a chart recorder to record parameter variations and an alarm to monitor chamber performance. Conditioned air flows horizontally through louvered portholes that balance air pressure for even distribution across each tray, allowing FDA and ICH stability testing standards to be met at all points in the chamber. Ten levels of stainless steel lipped trays offer 37.5 or 75 square feet (3.5 or 7 square meters) of storage space for products to be tested, depending on the size of the stability chamber. The stainless steel cabinet has heated double-glass doors (optional solid) for quick product identification to minimize door-ajar disruptions. Both the chamber door(s) and control panel are lockable.

Options available on our stability and shelf life testing chambers include RS-232 ports or re-transmit outputs for remote monitoring (instead of the chart recorder and alarm), and ultra-pure DI water re-circulation systems for applications where high quality water is not available. Please see our Accessories page for a full list of available options.

Photostability Chambers

Posted on Sep 19, 2012 in Shelf Life Stability Chambers

Photostability Chambers

Photostability chambers provide high intensity lighting in the 300-700 nm range for pharmaceutical stability studies conducted at constant temperature (25°C) according to the ICH testing guidelines. Each shelf has a bank of 10 lights that produce uniform lighting (±10%) across a large circular area on the shelf. The banks combine black and cool white fluorescent bulbs to satisfy the ICH definition for Option 2 lighting. At a distance of about 8” from the lights, average light intensity is approximately 10,000 lux for visible light and 10 w/m2 for black light. Four light switches control the light banks, and a black light digital timer allows the black light portion of the testing to be curtailed while the visible light portion of the stability study continues to completion. Temperature failsafes and lockable solid doors protect the study from temperature excursions and light disruption.

Accessories such as an A/V hi-low alarm, chart recorder, or access port for remote monitoring are popular options. For a complete list of available options, see our accessories page.
