Release & Stability Testing
Comprehensive stability services.
Metrics Contract Services offers a complete stability program with ICH, cGMP and global storage conditions. At any given time, we have 900 stability studies on going. Our ICH-compliant stability storage accommodates temperatures from -80°C to 60°C and, where applicable, humidity control from < 25% RH to 75% RH with many intermediate options available. Metrics Contract Services also offers customized storage conditions should your products storage needs surpass the ICH requirements. View our complete range of stability conditions.
Secure and reliable.
All stability chambers are monitored by a building management system that records temperature and humidity every five minutes and notifies appropriate personnel if pre-determined alarm criteria are met. Learn more about our facility and our overlapping backup systems.
