What is stability chamber in pharmaceutical industry?

A Stability Testing Chamber allows for the conduct and monitoring of chemical, biological, and microbiological tests.

Within the chamber, products can be tested to see if factors such as humidity, light, and temperature influence products whilst they are being stored.


Stability Chambers are used in pharmaceutical industries to ensure that products are not degraded by external factors when they are stored or transported. The results of stability testing can be used to determine if more testing is needed on the product before it is released for sale on the market.

The most common types of stability chambers include:

- Temperature-controlled chambers - these can be used for testing at different temperatures so that you can assess how well a product performs under certain conditions.

- Humidity controlled chambers - these allow you to test products in different humidity levels so that you can assess how well they perform under certain conditions; - Light controlled chambers - these allow you to assess how well your product performs under various levels of light exposure; - Pressure controlled chambers - these allow you to test how well your product performs at varying pressures.


What are different types of stability chambers?

There are several types of stability chambers.

Environmental chambers.

Temperature – humidity chambers.

Accelerated test chambers.

Photostability chambers.

Environmental Chambers

These chambers are used to simulate the ambient environment during storage, transportation, and distribution of products. The temperature and humidity can be controlled in these chambers to help keep the product stable during transport or storage.

The standard environmental chamber is an air-conditioned room that can be adjusted to any desired temperature, humidity, and airflow rate (velocity). These are used for long-term storage, transportation, and distribution studies where temperature and humidity must be maintained within specified limits throughout the test period.


Precautions for the use of stability test chamber?

If a drug stability test box is used improperly, it may cause damage to the instrument, or even lead to life-threatening injury. Therefore, before using a drug stability test box, you must carefully read the instruction manual.

At the same time, we must also pay attention to some simple precautions in order not to cause damage to the equipment.


The drug stability test box should be installed in a place where the temperature and humidity change is small as possible, and the three-pin plug should be used. The socket should be properly grounded.



Before starting the drug stability test box, you should be fully familiar with and understand the instructions of each component of the supporting instruments and meters, and master the correct use method.


Do not use non-standardized measuring instruments for measurement tasks. When replacing any parts or accessories of equipment during data collection and analysis, it is necessary to strictly follow their instructions for use so as not to cause damage to equipment or personal injury due to incorrect operation methods.
