Pharmaceutical Temperature Ranges

Pharmaceutical products require controlled temperature storage to guarantee that quality is not compromised.

Pharma products require close temperature control & monitoring to comply with industry regulations and pharmaceutical safety guidelines.

Pharmaceutical and Healthcare industries are required to deliver high-quality products to their patients. The storage or these products and medicines is a key priority, so that they can ensure the product is safe for use, stable and provide the intended efficacy of this product/treatment.

A range of regulatory temperature ranges need to meet the requirements of the regulator (HPRA, IMO, FDA). This is important for pharmaceutical companies to ensure they are assisting in Safeguarding public health and minimising potential risks that exist with products that are not correctly stored.

This article looks at the most common temperature range for pharmaceutical storage. It looks at how these temperatures affected the storage of products and medicine and which storage solutions offer said temperature ranges.

+25 to +60ºC | Incubator Stores / Hot Boxes

For many Pharmaceutical industries, the use of high-tech incubator stores is required for the safe testing of medical products, research, quality control and progression of scientific experiments. High-Temperature stores are essential investments for pharmaceutical companies looking to improve the quality of their product.

Suitable CRS Products that provide testing at this temperature range are Incubator Stores and Hot Boxes. These products provide safe, stable storage for a wide range of pharmaceutical products that need to be tested at increased temperature to ensure stability and efficacy. Our heated stores offer a wide range of temperatures, available for testing to concise regulatory standards.
