Caron's New Environmental Test Chambers and Refrigerated Incubators

Caron's new environmentally controlled stability chambers include large-capacity environmental chambers (7000 Series) and refrigerated incubators (7001 Series) in two-door (50 cu. ft.) and three-door (75 cu. ft.) configurations.

The new stability chambers are designed in accordance with FDA ICH Q1A Guidelines and can be used for numerous customer applications, including shelf-life studies, stability and package testing, and temperature-elevation studies. The stability chambers have several new features, including humidity control, self-closing doors with locks, CFC-free foam insulation, and a full-color user interface. These new design features help yield up to 71% in energy savings. The environmental chambers and refrigerated incubators also have a 7” color touchscreen that has easy-to-read icons and a display that can be operated with gloves on. Both products are constructed of stainless steel, making them easy to clean and highly resistant to corrosion.
