Application Note: KBF with ICH-illumination - BINDER is granted German patent for light integration
2 February 2007

BINDER's new patent for light integration is the most recent evidence of its successful innovation campaign. The pharmaceutical industry uses BINDER simulation chambers to test the shelf life of medicines.

The ICH Directive Q1B prescribes a photostability test in which samples are exposed to defined visible and UV radiation in climatic chambers with ICH lighting, until the required dosages have been achieved. BINDER's climatic chambers employ two advanced, non-directional spherical sensors, which produce higher accuracy than the planar sensors used in competitors' equipment.
