ICH climate conditions

Eurofins Sinensis offers cGMP stability testing and storage programs (Storage Stability) for a wide range of pharmaceuticals and related healthcare products to meet ICH guidelines. In addition we provide specialized non-standard climate conditions.
 

Storage Stability

‘Walk-in’ chambers are available for most standard ICH conditions and ‘reach-in’ chambers for specialized conditions. All chambers are continuously monitored by automated monitoring systems with full back-up. ICH stability services include long-term stability, accelerated stability, photostability, comparative stability, freeze-throw and forced degradation storage.


Storage Stability Conditions

  • ≤ - 60 °C 
  • - 20 ± 3 °C (Frozen)
  • 5 ± 3 °C (Refrigerated, Accelerated frozen)
  • 15 ± 3 °C
  • 25 ± 2 °C / 40 ± 5 % RH 
  • 25 ± 2 °C / 60 ± 5 % RH (ICH zone II, Accelerated Refrigerated)
  • 30 ± 2 °C / 65 ± 5 % RH (ICH zone IVa, Intermediate)
  • 30 ± 2 °C / 70 ± 5 % RH 
  • 30 ± 2 °C / 75 ± 5 % RH (ICH zone IVb)
  • 40 ± 2 °C / 75 ± 5 % RH (Accelerated Ambient)


Stability testing provides essential data on how the quality of a pharmaceutical varies over time under the influence of different environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and photostability. This enables recommended storage conditions, re-testing intervals and shelf-lives to be established. Comprehensive testing capabilities also include dissolution, Karl Fischer, hardness, disintegration, friability and characterization of impurities and degradants.
