Can You Syringe A BioScience Material?
Bioscience engineering is producing an array of new materials for use in the human body. Dental adhesives, ophthalmic fluids, bone joint fillers are but a few of the examples. Physical property testing is needed to qualify the performance of these materials, both in terms of how they handle as well as their final application within the body.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Procedural Reliability In Pharmaceutical Production
The worst thing that can happen on a pharmaceutical production line is a mix-up, i.e. either the product or the ID code is not what it should be.
Vision System Increases OEE By 200% On Pharmaceutical Packaging Line
A major pharmaceutical manufacturer’s packaging line presents a challenging vision system application because of the need to select exactly the right label among dozens of possible alternatives needed to meet differing languages and regulatory requirements around the world.
High-Speed Pharmaceutical Glass Vial Inspection With In-Sight Vision Systems
Few industrial sectors have such stringent quality requirements as the pharmaceutical industry. To meet these exacting specifications, companies are increasingly utilizing intelligent vision systems.
Destructive Testing: Does Your Hard Tablet Measure Up?
Vitamins and medicines oftentimes come in the form of hard tablets. Manufacturers need to ensure that they hold together from time of manufacture to moment of consumption by the customer. R&D scientists have come up with a battery of tests that can evaluate the physical properties of tablets related to fracturability and crush worthiness. Instruments of choice called “Texture Analyzers” which have come initially from the food industry are being used to perform these tests.
Slope’s Effect On Accurate Weighing
We often have customers call in with concerns that their floor is out of level and what affect that will have on their weight readings. The scale is designed with the assumption that the load will be parallel to the direction of gravity and perpendicular to the weighing platform; meaning, there is only a vertical force.
Medical Device Package Inspection Case Study
Medical device manufacturing is a labor intensive process, requiring operator involvement from manufacturing through final inspection of products.
