  • How To Select Critical Control Points For X-Ray Systems
    How To Select Critical Control Points For X-Ray Systems

    Food manufacturers typically install an x-ray inspection system at the end of the production line, although it can be installed at any point during the production process. But, which are the best locations for x-ray inspection? Where are the critical control points to ensure the highest levels of product safety? Should x-ray inspection be at the beginning of the production line, where the raw materials arrive, at some intermediate stage, or at the end of the line before products are shipped out? Or would product safety and quality be better served by installing x-ray systems at more than one critical control point? This white paper addresses these questions to help you understand the most effective locations of critical control points.

  • The Industry’s Shift To 100% Non-Destructive Container Closure Integrity Testing With USP <1207>
    The Industry’s Shift To 100% Non-Destructive Container Closure Integrity Testing With USP <1207>

    In recent years, container closure integrity (CCI) testing has steadily moved up the pharmaceutical manufacturing agenda. Latest research has shown that not only ampoules are prone to CCI defects. Other primary packaging types such as vials, cartridges and syringes equally require thorough testing, especially when filled with lyophilized products. Consequently, the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has been revising its General Chapter 1207, calling for more quantitative, validated CCI test methods. A significant shift is expected towards non-destructive technologies.

    A Reliable Central Monitoring Solution For Cleanrooms

    The Center for Regenerative Medicine (ZRM) in Zurich is part of the Center for Clinical Research (ZKF), which is supported by the University Hospital Zurich and the University of Zurich. The ZRM combines basic biomedical research and clinical applications in the field of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine uses cell-based technologies for the treatment of tissue and organ damage (e. g. growing skin for burn victims).

    Private Branding: How On-Demand Color Labeling Can Add Value To The Growing Generics Market

    The generics market has taken off in recent years due to numerous patent expirations for brand-name companies. In light of this, pharmaceutical manufacturers, insurance companies and consumers, in search of significant cost savings, have turned towards the generics industry.

In-Line 100% Container Closure Integrity Laser Based Headspace Inspection In-Line 100% Container Closure Integrity Laser Based Headspace Inspection

Container closure integrity (CCI) plays an important role in maintaining the sterility and stability of parenteral products. LIGHTHOUSE has analyzed CCI inspection data of commercial freeze-dried product vials from sterile facilities around the world. The data set of 15 million lyo vials shows an average CCI failure rate similar to that of ampoules (a few tenths of a percent - for more details, watch the Screencasts at the bottom of this page). The risk for container closure failure in the lyo process is part of the reason for new regulations and increased attention from inspectors to this topic in the past several years.
