Weiss Umwelttechnik GmbH– Worldwide largest Specialist in Environmental Simulation – has enlarged its Product Portfolio for Stability Testing with the new Model Pharma 280.
The International Harmonisation of Stability Tests for Medicines by the ICH committee as well as the shelf-life of foodstuffs, cosmetics and packaging during transportation, storage and use require suitable test chambers for the execution of stability tests. The Weiss Umwelttechnik GmbH Pharma series has developed Stability Test Systems, which fulfill the high requirements with regard to precision, reliability and reproducibility. The Pharma series of climate cabinets is now available in 4 different sizes (280, 600, 1300 and 2000 litres), the smaller one with 280L has been added.
The temperature precision is adjusted to the range from +5°C to 60°C and optimised with regard to the ICH values regarding this, the relative humidity can be adjusted from 20% to 90%. The required relative air humidity is generated with a patented steam humidification system (Sterile Steam System) in which the water introduced into the system is sterile evaporated at 140°C. The humidity measurement is carried out by means of a capacitive humidity sensor. To save space the units can be stacked.
In order to fulfil the requirements by GMP or authorities such as e.g. the FDA, comprehensive documents and corresponding services for qualification incl. FAT, DQ, IQ, OQ and PQ acc. to GAMP 4 and Verification Documents acc. to GAMP 5 are available for the Stability Test Chambers upon request. The system design is based on a GAMP risk analysis with a process optimised alarm management as well as a detailed user management.
