Stability Chamber


The purpose of stability testing is to provide evidence on how the quality of a drug substance or drug product varies with time under the influence of a variety of environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and light, and to establish a re-test period for the drug substance or product under recommended storage conditions. Hence, Pharmaceutical Stability Chamber serves as an important quality attribute for the product.

Calibration / Validation

i) Calibration
• Temperature sensor probe calibration with traceability to ERTL
• Temperature controller calibration with traceability to ERTL

ii) Validation
• IQ, OQ and PQ documentation and protocols shall be provided with equipment.
• Documentation prepared / developed for Osworld by Premier Validation Ltd. – Ireland, one of Europe’s leading validation
