Measuring instruments and all-in-one solutions for storage facilities

When storing pharmaceuticals, a high degree of compliance awareness is required in order to work safely and in accordance with the standards. This is because the indoor climate in storage rooms has an effect on the efficacy and quality of pharmaceuticals and, thus, on people’s health.

Testo’s all-in-one solutions, data logger systems and data loggers ensure that the climate of your storage facility is kept constant. This enables you to respond to any deviations in good time and to reliably comply with the regulations covering GSP (Good Storage Practice), GDP (Good Distribution Practice) and 21 CFR Part 11.

The storage of temperature-sensitive goods is a responsible task regulated by strict specifications.

Data loggers and services from Testo support you in fulfilling these conscientiously.

Goods and products that are sensitive to temperatures must be manufactured, stored and transported in qualified facilities, with qualified equipment and using validated processes.

Here, the three sub-processes of validation, qualification and mapping are of particular importance.




The purpose of validation is to ensure that a manufacturer's expected results can be guaranteed. A validation process takes place in three steps:

  1. Definition of the expected results and acceptance criteria.
  2. Verification and documentation that the process delivers the expected result.
  3. Determination of continuity, repeatability and accuracy of the validated process.



Qualification is the process of demonstrating that facilities and equipment are functioning properly.

For example, the qualification of a refrigerator or a high-bay warehouse ensures that all prescribed environmental conditions are met. Products that require refrigeration or are unstable pose particular challenges when it comes to storage.

A mapping (also called temperature or climate mapping) is part of this process step.



Temperature mapping identifies the zones of your storage, refrigeration and freezer areas that are within safe parameters for holding your products.

Mapping furthermore determines the performance limits of the air-conditioning systems. It also serves to identify critical control points in the refrigerator or storage area.

This enables you to optimally position the measuring points in your monitoring system and keep an eye on all the key parameters.
