Pharmaceutical Stability Test Chambers and Rooms

Developed through our global experience, this new generation of Pharmaceutical Stability Testing facilities represents leading edge technology from Weiss Technik UK. We have hundreds of chambers in over 50 countries satisfying critical performance standards demanded by the pharmaceutical industry. With the new Pharma-Safe models, further consideration of all aspects of the stability testing process have been incorporated into the design whether that be stability testing, photostability testing, validation, serviceability or cost of ownership.

The Pharma-Safe family is available in sizes to suit every need. From the smallest 182 litre (6.5cu.ft) when demand for test space is small, to the largest Walk-in Room.

Stability Testing by definition is a long process. A Stability Test Chamber must perform reliably and accurately throughout this time. Maintenance or service interventions during the testing are disruptive and costly. The Pharma-Safe system gives you long term, maintenance free, reliable and accurate performance.

All aspects of Pharma-Safe's design are totally compliant with ICH guidelines for Stability Testing (Q1A) and Photostability Testing (Q1B).

Cost of ownership has been minimised by the use of computer controlled refrigeration systems that control the flow of refrigerant gas levels rather than the conventional on/off systems. Water consumption is very low however with the AquaRec UV option it becomes negligible. In today's environment conserving resources counts. Responsible design ensures low utilisation of valuable resources and minimises cost of ownership without compromising performance.

Validation procedures and documents have been developed and refined with input from leading global pharmaceutical companies. You can be confident that the Pharma-Safe validation protocols are recognised by industry leading organisations on every continent and will surpass even the most demanding requirements. Pharma-Safe is a global product for a global industry with personal localised service and support at its heart. Pharma-Safe dealers are trained and certified by Weiss Technik K.

Modular, quick-build Pharmaceutical Stability Test Rooms (PSR) have proven popular. The PSR range provides cost-efficient, large capacity storage for those with high and increasing sample throughput. Offering the same long term, reliable and accurate performance as the rest of the family, PSR's are installed by a dedicated team of specialists ensuring compliance with our strict validation protocols.
