Cold Storage Validation Services
Our experienced technicians perform cold storage refrigerator validation services for various types of temperature-controlled units, from compact refrigerators to warehouse walk-in chambers.
Sierra's quality services help to ensure that your equipment meets critical temperature and control specifications before it is used to hold pharmaceuticals, lab samples or product materials.
For Validation (temperature mapping services), Data is collected during an empty state and a loaded state. Additionally, data is collected on temperature recovery following specific events, such as opening doors or power losses.
Sierra gathers temperature mapping results by using highly reliable NABL traceable data loggers and temperature probes.
Warehouses: Using the portable USB based Temperature & Humidity data loggers, a complete temperature profile or heat distribution, can be performed totemperature5 guarantee product integrity. First, an evaluation of the storage area is prepared. This is to identify potential hot or cold spots, such as windows or HVAC vents. The number of data loggers to be used is then determined based on the evaluation and area of the storage location. They are then programmed and placed in the pre-determined locations. Typically, the data loggers record up to one week before the data is analyzed. Once the test period is over, the data loggers are retrieved and the data is downloaded. Multiple tests can be performed to ensure consistent results.
Refrigerated Cold Chain Truck: Using the portable USB based Temperature & Humidity data loggers, a complete temperature profile or heat distribution is performed to guarantee temperature6product integrity. Potential hot or cold spots are identified, such as windows or Air Conditioning Vents. Typically, the data loggers record up 2-3 days of data before the data is analyzed. Once the test period is over, the data loggers are retrieved and the data is downloaded. Multiple tests can be performed to ensure consistent results.
