Cold Box Conducts In-House Performance Qualification Testing For Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Clients
Over the past several months, Cold Box Express has conducted numerous in-house operational and performance qualification tests (OQ and PQ) tests on their climate controlled containers in order to prepare for upcoming pharmaceutical cold chain validation testing by several third party organizations.
One of the main purposes for these cold chain performance qualification tests is to ensure the container performs as expected under simulated real-world conditions. These include affixing numerous NISTED internal probes and temperature loggers inside payload compartment to determine if the box is capable of maintaining a consistent set temperature point during both typical transport scenarios. Worst case scenarios include extreme ambient conditions, power outages, an improperly closed or sealed door, or an empty payload compartment.
