Introducing MicroCurrent HVLD technology for all Parenteral and Biologic Products at Pharma Expo


Tuckahoe, New York (October, 2016) – PTI Inspection Systems will introduce the new E-Scan 655 MicroCurrent HVLD Micro Leak Detection System at Pharma Expo, November 6-9, 2016 in McCormick Place, Chicago IL in Booth W-801.

The E-Scan 655 is a revolutionary deterministic offline leak test instrument that utilizes a new class of HVLD technology to inspect vials, syringes and other liquid filled parenteral products for container closure integrity. The E-Scan MicroCurrent technology exposes the package and product to lower voltage than other conductivity based solutions and can be used with a wide range of liquid based products including low conductivity sterile water for injection (WFI) and proteinaceous products with suspensions.

MicroCurrent HVLD technology

Applications include pre-filled syringes, vials, cartridges, ampoules, BFS, bottles, pouches.

Heinz Wolf, general manager of PTI Inspection Systems, stated, “The E-Scan 655 patent pending technology uses a unique mode of MicroCurrent HVLD, applying less than 50% of the voltage used with conventional high voltage technologies. In fact, using PTI’s MicroCurrent HVLD reduces voltage exposure to the product to less than 5% of the voltage exposure experienced when testing with comparable HVLD solutions.”
