When it comes to package integrity, what’s referred to as “level of assurance” can be rephrased as “what leak size still works for a particular product?” Gray areas exist, and it comes down to how much substrate or organisms will transfer through a leak, and at what level does this transfer of substrate or organisms affect the product. So the real question becomes, What is the “Critical-to-Quality” leak size?
Oliver Stauffer will address these issues in the IoPP webinar “The Path to Package Integrity.” His presentation will offer insight into understanding and defining the Critical-to-Quality leak size for various package and container formats, and also on how to fully understand package barrier. He will also discuss what happens when a package suffers from an integrity failure.
What you will learn:
• Understanding and acting on Critical-to-Quality leak size
• Defining sterile barrier and integrity
• Characterizing leakage
• Identifying potential problems
