Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology companies are under a great deal of pressure to comply with regulatory requirements from the inception of a product to its final destination. One such aspect of the regulatory process is stability testing. Stability testing allows drug manufactures to expose the product to conditions that might occur in the supply chain, as well as provide for stress testing for determination of shelf life. Stability testing relies on three important parameters:

1) Control Constancy
2) Uniformity
3) Sensor accuracy

Clay Hile of Parameter Generation and Control and Greg Gowaski of ROTRONIC discuss the important points of stability testing.
