PTI Inspection to Introduce Non-Destructive Technology For Blister Package Testing At INTERPHEX 2016


-Bring Blister Pack Samples to INTERPHEX for Testing by the VeriPac UBV Inspection System-

NEW YORK, NY; April 18, 2016 – International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX), the premier event dedicated to pharmaceutical and biotechnology innovation, technology and knowledge from development through commercialization sponsored by the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), and PTI Inspection Systems, a leading manufacturer of non-destructive inspection and leak testing technologies, today announced the new, tool-less technology to test blister packaging will debut at INTERPHEX, April 26-28 in New York.

The VeriPac UBV Leak Detection System is a deterministic non-destructive technology designed specifically for multi-cavity blister packs and utilizes volumetric imaging under vacuum to detect the presence of leaks…making it a simple, rapid 3-step process to test a blister pack. 

Bring Blister Pack Samples to INTERPHEX for Testing
PTI Attendees are invited to bring their blister pack samples to INTERPHEX and have their samples tested by PTI at Booth 3717.

Operators follow these 3 steps:

  1. Input number of blister cavities
  2. Place the blister pack on the inspection plate
  3. Press the START button

Within seconds, the operator sees a definitive pass/fail result, along with a volumetric measurement reading.  The location of the defective cavity is also identified.  This technology is unique in that it can provide rapid detection of defects as small as 10 microns in a test cycle of less than 15 seconds using no tools or test parameter changes.

Package quality assurance is achieved by deploying accurate, reliable non-destructive inspection methods, removing subjectivity from the testing process while reducing waste. The VeriPac UBV allows tested product to be returned to the production line and eliminates the significant costs and waste associated with destructive leak test methods.
