MediScan is a tool-less, non-destructive leak detection device for non-porous pouches, sachets and medical device packaging.

The MediScan leak detection device incorporates the leak detection technology and software, developed by Sepha, that is utilized on a daily basis by top global companies to ensure the product integrity in their pharmaceutical prodction lines.


  • Non-destructive test generates less waste and bigger product yield
    • The non-contact method is clean and dry, unlike other destructive leak testing methods (eg Methylene Blue Dye Test), and does not destroy test product or packaging.
    • Tested product can be retrieved from faulty packs and repackaged.
    • Packs which pass the leak test can be put back onto the production line.
  • Accurate, validatable results for each pouch or sachet
    • Detects holes down to 10 microns.
    • Automatically stores product-specific data in pre-designated file locations. BlisterScan verifies the product to be tested before each cycle.
    • Totally objective results as no operator intervention is required
    • Pass or fail criteria can be set to the same micron level as your existing Methylene Blue Dye Test.
    • Result data is stored and can be printed or downloaded to other storage devices for further analysis.
  • Quicker troubleshooting for line set-up to reduce rejects
    • Fast test cycle means that leak testing can be carried out more frequently.
    • Earlier detection of leaks allows line operators to investigate the cause of the failed seal more quickly, so fewer faulty packs are produced on the line.
  • Easy to use
    • No special technical skills required.
    • Touch screen operator interface.
    • 30 second product changeover.
