Join the webinar to learn about the Key preparation steps for the successful installation of a functional and reliable ICH Stability Chamber and what goes into the design and planning considerations of a successful installation of an ICH Stability Chamber, including the room material selection, room size, and optimization, as well as analyzing the risks and how to manage them.

Event Abstract

This presentation discusses the key milestone steps you should consider when planning and designing your stability chambers for long lifecycle value, operational efficiency, and reliability. Stability chambers should be robust and reliable and provide years of cost-effective operation. We will highlight a case study of a large stability chamber where a sound engineering approach resulted in less power consumption and smaller emergency generators and better operational efficiency. Proper planning and execution are key to success.
We will discuss risk planning and backup systems ensuring reliable operation.
