tritec® climatic cabinets for stability tests (acc. to ICH-guidelines)
Stability testing plays a key role in the development and approval of new drugs and pharmaceutical products. The target of stability testing is to find out how the products or substances will change under certain conditions during a particular time period.
tritec® climatic cabinets are the ideal solution for stability testing of pharmaceutical products according to the ICH-guideline. They offer temperature ranges up to 70 °C as well as moistening and dehumidification up to a maximum of 96 percent relative humidity.

- 400 Litres
- 600 Litres
- 1,350 Litres
Precisely tempered air circulates permanently in the cabinet. No unwanted temperature buildup in the corners and between the products.
Microprocessor-controlled temperature and humidity controller
- With digital LCD-display
- Entry with membrane keypad, readable on LCD-display
- Signalling in event of excess and falling of the set point acoustically
- -2 °C to 70 °C, temperature accuracy +/- 0,3 °C
- 15 °C to 60 °C, temperature accuracy +/- 2,0 °C
- Other temperature ranges on request
- from 20 % to 96 % RH / humidity accuracy +/- 4 % RH
- from 40 % to 90 % RH / humidity accuracy +/- 5 % RH
- Humidity provided by means of very fine atomising using ultrasonic humidifier
For the humidity system distilled or deionised water has to be used. The cabinet can be connected to the own maintenance. Optionally, water can be supplied from a container (e.g.,10 litres) above or beside the cabinet. The water pressure should not exceed one bar.
- With right or left-hand hinge
- Partially with inspection window
- Optionally with door lock
- Door Lock incl. two keys
- Stainless steel shelves
- Illuminated shelf
- Printer (listing)
- Socket outlet (damp room) located in the cabinet interior
- Wall opening with piping connections and screw cap
- CO2 fumigation

Climatic cabinets for stability tests with reliable results
In order to determine the shelf life of medicinal products, climatic cabinets are used which ensure constant climatic conditions. Pharmaceuticals must comply with specifications defined from a microbiological, chemical and physical point of view over a certain period of time. For example, the active ingredient content must not fall below a predetermined guideline value (e.g., 90 percent) over the duration of a stability test. The International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use, or ICH for short, provides precise guidelines on how such stability tests should be carried out.
New drugs are subjected to both long-term and short-term tests. The latter are so-called accelerated stability tests, which are usually used in addition. For a maximum of six months, the samples are stored in their final packaging at a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius and a relative humidity of 75 percent in a climatic cabinet. In order for a drug to be released, three batches in particular must be tested under long-term conditions. Such tests are carried out for a maximum of five years and the climatic conditions depend on the respective consumer region. These are either 25 degrees Celsius and 60 percent relative humidity or 30 degrees Celsius and 65 percent relative humidity.
tritec® climatic cabinets comply with the ICH guideline
Organizations such as ICH place high demands on the performance of stability tests. At tritec® you get high-quality climatic and refrigeration technology, which is perfectly adapted to the given guidelines. With our high-quality laboratory equipment, from the medical refrigerator to the incubator rooms to the neutralization system, you ensure reliable quality assurance. Our climatic cabinets in accordance with the ICH guidelines simulate perfect conditions under which you can check that your samples fully meet the specified criteria.
We offer you climatic cabinets with volumes of 400, 600 and 1,350 litres. Depending on the size, these units have a temperature range between -2 and 70 or 15 and 60 degrees Celsius. Alternatively, we can manufacture a device with a temperature range of your choice. Thanks to modern technology, we achieve a particularly high temperature accuracy. Optionally we equip your climatic cabinet with an acoustic overtemperature alarm, so that you can always keep an eye on the compliance with your target values.
To ensure ideal climatic conditions, our units can also be equipped with an ultrasonic humidifier, which ensures constant ultra-fine atomisation. Depending on the size of the climatic cabinet, this allows a humidity range of 15 to 90 or 30 to 96 percent.
Using intuitive operating elements with digital LCD display, you can set and program the temperature and humidity ranges exactly according to your specifications. With tritec® climatic cabinets you carry out short- and long-term tests which fully comply with the current requirements of the ICH guideline. Benefit from the precise results that our devices provide.
