Performing stability studies is a critical step in the drug development and approval process. These studies require using a stability chamber, which simulates different real-world conditions to help determine the effects of temperature, pressure, oxygen levels, light, and humidity on a product. This testing is not only essential to determine the efficacy and shelf life of a drug product, but it is also required for regulatory approval.
Stability studies provide pharmaceutical companies with critical data on drug performance. This data can then be used to inform decisions on product development, quality assurance protocols, ideal transportation, and storage conditions. Comprehensive testing can require a number of different types of stability chambers to simulate all necessary conditions. Depending on the stability chambers used, these studies can take several weeks or even months to complete. Explore the ways to ensure that your drug is safe and effective and which pieces of equipment are best suited to take your product to market efficiently.
