Risks Of Pinholes And Leaks In Pharmaceutical Containers
Hemi Sagi , President of Advanced Test Concepts (ATC) , recently was interviewed to discuss the risks of a pinhole or a micro leak in pharmaceutical containers and packaging systems. “The idea is to ensure that the package is sterile and a microorganism cannot go through this defect size. Some of our applications include testing of syringes with drugs, cartridges, valves, and similar sterile products” said Sagi. Increasing demands for container closure integrity testing (CCIT) are driven by the FDA guidelines for sterile barrier. ATC specializes in leak testing due to the need for a better method of leak testing methods. Some of the leak testing applications include: blisters, vials , syringes, cartridges and IV bags.
