Compressor-cooled stability test chambers that stand out due to their unparalleled temperature and humidity homogeneity for longterm stable ambient conditions. The climate chamber ICH has been specially designed for testing pharmaceutical products according to ICH, Q1A and Q1B, option 2, and similar global standards for stability tests of cosmetics and food.
ICH with humidity control
Temperature range with humidity
ICH +10 °C to +60 °C
Humidity range 10 €“ 80 % rh
No icing, no drying out of samples, no dehumidification of the working chamber. Cooling aggregate and heating of the ICH are situated outside the working chamber in the air jacket surrounding the entire chamber thus ensuring quick and precise temperature control. Furthermore, the motor-driven forced air circulation, adjustable in 10 % steps, ensures particularly homogenous temperature distribution.
For supporting IQ/OQ/PQ validation, the control can be adjusted for three adjustable temperature values, two humidity values 20 % and 80 % and three CO2 values 5 %, 10 % and 15 % (for ICH) directly on the appliance.
For tests in accordance with ICH Q1B, option 2, an light unit with a light intensity of about 8,000 Lux is available for models designated with an L - eg ICH110L. This is a fluorescent light with cold-white light (standard illuminant D56, 6,500 K) and UV radiation with a spectral range of315 €“ 400 nm
Models with a C sugffix eg ICH110C also feature an el;ectronic CO2 control system with automatic zero setting, NDIR system, alarms and air pressure compensation.
Model sizes 110, 260, 750 L
-10/0/10°C - 50/60°C (without humidity)
10°C - 50/60°C (with humidity)
We want the process of purchasing a test chamber to be as simple as possible. Below we provide some extra information and links to our specific guides.
What is a test chamber?
A test chamber is used to simulate environmental conditions and this can be used in many applications including stability testing in a range of industry types. But how exactly is it different to a humidity chamber or an incubator? Can these units be certified medical devices? Can they perform testing in accordance with any recognised standards? What water supply is needed for a humidity chamber? If you want to know this and more including answers to an array of our most asked questions click here.
Choosing the right test chamber
Choosing the right test chamber for your application can be a bit of a minefield, with such a large selection available from our supplied brands Memmert and MMM Medcentre. Here we list the differences between chamber ranges such as what exactly the different controller types are and how this impacts use and other points to consider when selecting the most suitable chamber.
Caring for your test chamber
Test chambers are a costly purchase so you will want to keep it in top shape. You should be wiping down the chamber inside and out and be careful with how you load it to ensure efficient operation. If you want to know what else you should do to maintain your chamber and actions to follow to keep it working at its best then you can check out this page.
