Calibration Procedure. Allow the buffered standards to equilibrate to the ambient temperature. Fill calibration containers with the buffered standards so each standard will cover the pH probe and temperature sensor. Abstract. An important aspect of all stability studies is the stability chambers themselves.

This chapter is intended to provide a description of the different sizes and types of chambers that are available, the chamber tolerances required, and to provide some practical information for qualification, calibration, maintenance and monitoring of the chambers.

Shonka Tissue Equivalent Ion Chambers (s) In Francis Shonka developed what came to be known as A tissue equivalent plastic. To a large extent, A plastic has become the material of choice for constructing the ionization chambers and proportional counters used to measure the absorbed dose to tissue from neutrons and protons.

A “typical” commercial calibration uses the manufacturer’s calibration procedure and is performed with a reference standard at least four times more accurate than the instrument under test.
