Parenteral product package systems are expected to provide barriers against drug contamination and ensure stability and sterility throughout the entire shelf life. Any defect in packaging can cause microbial contamination, exposure to gases and water vapor, resulting in product deterioration. Furthermore, the industry has seen a spike in demand for combination products and patient-centered drug delivery systems, that present a high level of technical risk for maintaining container closure integrity (CCI). Therefore, container closure integrity testing is an important stage in the sterile drug product lifecycle.
Automated package inspection with VeriPac LPX
As the pharmaceutical industry continues to grow, manufacturers require capable, consistent automated solutions for container closure integrity testing. Automated inspection systems improve package reliability, reduce chances of product recalls and packaging failure.
PTI's VeriPac LPX series are a line of fully automated package quality inspection systems for 100% inline testing. The LPX enables enhanced automated testing that provides a high level of confidence in packaging line performance. Veripac LPX is a practical and reliable solution for the problems associated with performing infrequent testing as well as for recognizing and correcting process-related quality issues.
Sensitivity and reliability go hand in hand with CCI testing. The VeriPac LPX 430.8S is the next generation automated inspection system for container closure integrity testing of parenteral products. Automated for 100% testing or batch release, the VeriPac PLX 430.8S is an eight-station dual chamber design, with robotic testing platform for pre-filled syringes and vials, products filled with lyophilized product, small molecule liquids and Water for Injection (WFI).
The VeriPac LPX features a dynamic robotic design, tailored to fit varied production requirements. LPX Series are scalable, modular solutions to meet production line demands. This adaptable platform provides reliable automated handling of a variety of packaging formats. Applications for LPX automation range from flexible packaging to rigid containers, and parenteral products. Additionally, VeriPac LPX allows easy changeover for testing different size packages on the same system.
