PTI Inspection Systems will showcase the E-Scan 625 HVLD Micro Leak Detection System at the Interphex Show, March 18-20, 2014, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York, NY in Booth 2053A. The E-Scan 625 is an offline lab instrument that utilizes high voltage leak detection (HVLD) technology to inspect individual samples for container closure integrity. HVLD is completely non-destructive to the container, is a non-contact, non-invasive test with no sample preparation required. HVLD can be used on a wide range of liquid based products, including protein based products and products with suspensions. The benchtop design is ideal for laboratory testing and R & D purposes.

Heinz Wolf, general manager for PTI Inspection Systems, commented, “High voltage leak detection (HVLD) has proven to be a highly sensitive leak test method for various types of pharmaceutical and biological products. HVLD has demonstrated improved detection capabilities compared to conventional dye and microbial ingress methods.”

Applications include:

  • Pre-filled syringes
  • Liquid filled vials
  • Blow-fill-seal containers
  • Ampoules
  • Liquid filled pouches

The HVLD test method ensures product seal integrity by identifying small pinholes, micro cracks and seal imperfections. E-Scan 625 features a fast test cycle, produces highly repeatable results and is easy to operate. Additional benefits include quick changeover and easy test parameter changes to accommodate different products. Another advantage is the HVLD method can be easily migrated from the laboratory offline to 100% inline testing applications at high production speeds. This is a huge advantage and overall simplifies the inspection and validation process.


  • Non-destructive, non-invasive, no sample preparation
  • Micro leak detection down to 1 micron
  • High level of repeatability and accuracy
  • Simplifies the inspection and validation process
  • Suitable for clinical trials and stability studies
  • Available for 100% online inspection at high production speeds
