The VisionScan is a tool-less, non-destructive leak detection device for pharmaceutical blister packs.

Using the latest camera imaging technology, the VisionScan lead detection device offers modern pharmaceutical manufacturers a flexible, reliable, objective and cost saving alternative to destructive blister pack test methods such as blue dye. VisionScan is simple to operate and requires no tooling, making it ideal for high volume pharmaceutical manufacturers and packagers where high levels of quality control, cost reduction and multiple product changes are required.


  • Non-destructive test generates less waste and bigger product yield
  • Accurate, validatable results for each pocket - Detects holes down to 10 microns.
  • Quicker troubleshooting for line set-up to reduce rejects - Fast test cycle means that leak testing can be carried out more frequently.
  • Fast payback by reducing waste - On average save $1,000/day by replacing the methylene blue dye test with VisionScan
  • Easy to use - Touch screen operator interface.


  • Non-destructive seal and leak detection device designed for blister packs
  • Incorporates high resolution imaging technology that will detect defects in individual blister pockets, channel leaks and weak seals down to 15 micron
  • Tool-less. Ideal for production lines running multiple products
  • Can test multiple packs per test cycle
  • Rapid test time of less than 60 seconds per test
  • Operating system can store up to 30,000 product types
  • Simple operator use via a touch screen interface
  • Can test packs that contain tablets / capsules in  multiple material / design formats
  • Objective, repeatable pack test for each product
  • Capable of storing and exporting data for audit  and quality control purposes
  • Can form part of 21CFR part 11 compliant system
  • Improved environmental impact
  • Flexible, mobile table top device
