VisionScan is a tool-less, non-destructive leak detection device for pharmaceutical blister packs. Using the latest camera imaging technology, it 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 seal and leak detection device designed for blister packs
Incorporates imaging technology that will detect defects in individual blister pockets, channel leaks and weak seals equivalent to a 7μm* laser drilled pin hole
Tool-less device making it ideal for production lines running multiple products
Can test multiple packs per test cycle
- Connectivity, has the ability to connect to an OPC Server or database
Rapid test time down to 10 seconds for micron holes and as low as 6 seconds for gross holes
Operating system can store unlimited 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
Compact and lightweight, mobile table top device with improved environmental impact
Active Directory and flexible reporting built-in
* Pack and material dependent
Drug stability testing in laboratories
R&D departments test materials to ensure the correct materials are used to protect new products from contamination by moisture, air and bacteria.
QA Testing of packaging processes
Build leak tests into Quality Assurance procedures for your blister packaging line. Objective seal testing maintains compliance and ensures the integrity of the packaging process. VisionScan ensures protection from moisture, air and bacteria and allows investigation of atypical results.
Reduce production rejects
Minimise reject blisters and waste disposal created in pharmaceutical production and packaging facilities by carrying out leak testing more frequently. Earlier detection of a leak means line operators can troubleshoot the cause of a leak before large volumes of faulty blisters are produced.
Non-destructive test generates less waste and bigger product yield
The image scanning 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.
- Can test multiple pack formats as no tooling is required
Accurate, validatable results for each pocket
Detects holes down to 7μm*
Totally objective results as no operator intervention is required
Pass or fail criteria can be set to the same micron level as your existing Blue Dye Test.
Result data is stored and can be printed or downloaded to other storage devices for further analysis.
* Pack and material dependent
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.
Fast payback by reducing waste
The average user can save $1,000 per day by replacing the methylene blue dye test with VisionScan
