    Stability Testing Machine

    Stability is an important quality characteristic of pharmaceutical products. The purpose of evaluating stability is to demonstrate how the quality of a drug substance or drug product varies under the influence of a variety of environment factors, such as temperature, humidity, and light, and to establish the recommended storage conditions and shelf-life for the drug product.
