  1. How The Extrusion Process Impacts The Quality of Blow/Fill/Seal Products

    A collaborative study involving Cardinal Health, Inc. and Air Dispersions Ltd. has been carried out to further the understanding of the extrusion process and its impact upon the quality of Blow/Fill/Seal product. Controlled challenges to the extrusion system, comprising Low Density Polyethylene granulate contaminated with characterized levels of Bacillus atrophaeus (ATCC 9372) endospores and Escherichia coli 055:B5 bacterial endotoxin, have been conducted.

  2. Improving Uptime In Aseptic Processing Of Pharmaceutical Liquids

    Maximized uptime, minimized changeover time, and efficient OEE are key factors that have influenced the acceptance of aseptic blow-fill-seal in the packaging of pharmaceutical liquids.

  3. Improving Process Quality: Aseptic Blow-Fill-Seal Technology vs. Traditional Aseptic Processing

    BFS technology has been gaining increasing worldwide acceptance in the parenteral drug marketplace, replacing traditional glass vial processing in a growing number of applications.

  4. Aseptic Blow-Fill-Seal: A Sustainable Process For Packaging Pharmaceutical Liquids

    Aseptic blow-fill-seal systems for packaging pharmaceutical liquids incorporate materials and process that provide critical advantages for sustainable initiatives.

  5. The Role Of IoT And Control Technologies In Water Filtration Systems

    ​Water and wastewater treatment applications encompass a wide range of processes, technologies, and physical/chemical methods. Among them, filtration and separation technologies are the core of treatment processes, and in many cases, they can be critical process bottlenecks. Engineering firms, engineering procurement and construction contractors, and end users have high expectations regarding a plant's operation, process design, efficiency, and performance.

  6. An Introduction To Vacuum Decay Leak Testing

    Vacuum decay is a test method that has been proven over decades and improved with new technology innovations. The test method is simple in principle and challenges container integrity based on fundamental physical properties. It involves drawing vacuum on a package within a test chamber and monitoring the vacuum level for any decay, which would indicate a leak. The method established itself as a non-destructive replacement to the water bath leak test. It provides significant savings by not wasting product for a leak test, and generates return on investment in under six months for many products.

  7. Efficient Cleaning-In-Place Methods For Protein-Based Antibody Affinity Chromatography Resins

    This whitepaper discusses cleaning of affinity resins intended for use in the purification of monoclonal antibodies and antibody fragments.

  8. 5 Ways To Minimize Risks While Preparing Artwork For Carton Packaging

    The process of preparing artwork is essential for box packaging. There is a considerable amount of detail that goes into preparation, but it doesn’t have to be a frustrating ordeal.

  9. Performance Validation, Verification, Monitoring and Testing

    This white paper gives guidance on the essential processes of validation, verification, and routine performance monitoring for in-line product inspection equipment in food making facilities.

  10. Label Mix-Up Prevention: Using Vision To Improve The Labeling Process

    This white paper explains how vision inspection systems can help protect consumers and your brand.
