On-line Audio Seminar 239

Qualification and Calibration of Stability Chambers

Learn how to select, conduct and document the right test parameters and conditions


Order Button

Well performing stability chambers are most important to reliably predict shelf life specifications of drugs at different environmental conditions on the way from manufacturing to patients. FDA and international agencies expect  stability chambers to be qualified and calibrated to ensure proper performance when newly installed and over the length of a stability study. Even though this is well known since long time, laboratories are unsure on what exactly should be tested initially and on an on-going basis.

Key Questions related to qualification and calibration of stability chambers are:

  • What does FDA say about stability changer qualification?
  • What exactly are the expectations of inspectors?
  • What is the difference between calibration, qualification and testing?
  • Which parameters should be tested and what are the acceptance criteria?
  • Should we test parameters over the entire range, or is it enough to test at one point?
  • When and how much should we re-qualify, e.g., after repair or firmware upgrades? 
  • Who can or should test stability chambers, the vendor, user, 3rd party?
  • What to test after changes, e.g., when the equipment is moved, repaired or updated?
  • How to bring existing chambers into compliance?
  • Which documentation should be available for inspectors?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and an overview and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, test scripts, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation..

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and equivalent international requirements
  • Examples for recent 483s and Warning Letters
  • Selection and qualification model: ASTM E2500, USP <1058>, V- or, 4-Q models
  • Calibration/qualification phases: design qualification, specifications, installation & operational qualification/verification testing, on-going performance qualification
  • Selecting parameters and acceptance limits for stability chambers initial testing
  • Selecting parameters and acceptance limits for stability chambers ongoing testing
  • Qualification for Photostability Testing Chambers
  • Requalification after equipment changes (move, repair, firmware upgrade, hardware upgrade)
  • Documentation requirements, e.g., humidity and temperature mapping
  • Common pitfalls
  • Sharing best practices
  • Most frequently asked questions
