Using Microcurrent High Voltage Leak Detection Technologies For Challenging Drug Products

PTI’s MicroCurrent HVLD has been hailed as a method that can leak test a wide range of product conductivities and chemical characteristics. This is extremely valuable for the pharmaceutical industry, by leveraging test method development on some products to validate other products. If a pharma site is producing 1 ml syringes, they may be filling them with a wide range of products. If PTI’s MicroCurrent HVLD is used to test the product, the system can be used to develop a method on low conductivity and high conductivity products. Once the two methods are developed and the parameters are shown to be universal across the two conductivities, the method can be leveraged to validate product formulations that reside within that range of conductivities. Doing so will save pharmaceutical companies valuable time and resources in deploying a test method.
