Element supports you with advanced pharmaceutical stability storage and testing services at every stage of your pharmaceutical drug product development program. 

The conditions under which drug substance and drug products are manufactured, transported and stored can influence their efficacy. Stability studies in the pharmaceutical industry help to estimate the impact of transportation and storage on drug and medical device performance by stressing materials under exaggerated environmental conditions. Appropriate temperature, humidity, and light conditions guarantee that drugs are delivered to patients without loss of therapeutic properties.

Element’s stability studies of pharmaceutical products enable the identification of any potential chemical or physical changes that could potentially impact product safety and quality. The data obtained from these studies help you establish optimal transportation and storage conditions and verify product shelf-life.

Pharmaceutical products stability storage and testing services

International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) stability guidelines 

As a fully Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) compliant laboratory, Element follows ICH guidelines for stability testing and storage conditions of pharmaceutical products. We offer a wide range of ICH stability conditions, including but not limited to:  

  • -20°C (± 5°C)
  • 5°C (± 3°C)
  • 25°C/40%RH, 25°C/ 60%RH (± 2°C/±5%RH)
  • 30°C/35%RH, 30°C/ 65% RH, 30°C/75%RH (± 2°C/±5%RH)
  • 40°C/ 75%RH (± 2°C/±5%RH)
  • Photostability

The Element advantage 

Element’s pharmaceutical stability teams provide high-quality data in support of all stages of drug and device development, from early research through full finished product studies that adhere to ICH guidelines.

Our stability testing programs are strictly controlled using 21CFR, part 11 compliant project management software. With chambers monitored, fully validated and alarmed, whether your project is a small, one-off study or a major program, we can provide you with a low-risk, high-quality stability study of pharmaceuticals.
