Cold Storage (Refrigerators/Freezers)


Cold Storage (Refrigerators/Freezers):

Performance Validation has extensive experience with refrigerators, freezers, and sub-freezers from execution of qualification/validation projects with multiple clients across Pharmaceutical, Animal Health, and Medical Device life science industries.  These projects included mapping studies using PV’s own inventory of wireless Vaisala temperature and humidity data loggers and low temperature loggers.

Performance Validation resources have expertise with determining logger placement for mapping, identifying locations for permanent monitoring sensors, and working with our clients to resolve hot/cold spot issues.  For a more cost effective solution, PV has developed standard temperature mapping templates and reports for almost any application.  A summary of the types of recent projects completed are identified below:
