FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
| ||Is the MB87X fully ICH Q1B compliant?|
Yes. The MB87X meets all the photostability requirements cited in Q1B for light sources and measurement of light exposure.
| ||Do I need to qualify the unit on a regular basis?|
Because we use quinine actinometry for measurement of light exposure, there is no need for light meters or radiometers, thereby eliminating the need for meter recertification.
| ||What about validation?|
The MB87X comes fully validated and mapped.
| ||What do I get when purchasing the MB87X?|
The MB87X comes with the cabinet itself, Option 2 lamps (cool white plus UV-A), comprehensive validation report that includes protocol, report, lamp data such as spectral power distribution curves and IQ/OQ documents. In addition, a supply of quinine monohydrochloride dihydrate and suitable 1-cm screw-capped cuvettes is included.
| ||Why buy an MB87X?|
There are several reasons such as ease of use, low/no maintenance, no calibrations of meters and availability of replacement bulbs from local sources.
| ||What are my cost-savings benefits?|
Since photostability cabinets tend to be used intermittently rather than continuously, why pay a premium price ($35,000 or more) for a unit that will spend most of its time unused. Plus, with the MB87X, there is no need for expensive temperature/humidity controls or monitoring devices, nor is there ever a need to recalibrate or requalify the unit.
