Tuckahoe, NY - PTI will showcase VeriPac Package Quality Inspection Systems at two co-located events at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL November 2 – 5, 2014, Pack Expo International in Booth S-2351 and Pharma Expo in Booth W-439.

Pharma Expo Booth W-439:  VeriPac 455 for Micro Leak Detection and Container Closure Integrity Testing:

  • CCIT of syringes, liquid filled & lyophilized vials, ampoules, cartridge pen injectors and other pharmaceutical products.
  • Features patented PERMA-Vac technology that offers high test sensitivity with very consistent, reliable, repeatable results.
  • Applications include stability studies, clinical trials, quality assurance testing and statistical process control (SPC).
  • Capable of detecting leak rates as low as 0.05 cc/min.
  • Results proven to be superior and more reliable than dye ingress.

Pack Expo Booth S-2351:   VeriPac 400 D-Series - GMP grade test system features drawer style test chamber:

  • Versatile non-destructive package inspection system specially designed for testing dry filled pouches and flexible packaging (pouches, stick packs, sachets).
  • Provides a qualitative result (PASS or FAIL) as well as quantitative data that correlates to leak rate and leak size.
  • Available in several configurations according to package specifications and test sensitivity requirements.  

“PTI’s VeriPac line of package inspection equipment ensures the integrity and shelf life of food, pharmaceutical, medical device, nutritional and oral dose products.  VeriPac systems have  proven to reduce cost and waste as well as increase quality assurance,” stated Oliver, Stauffer, vice president of PTI’s inspection technologies.  VeriPac vacuum decay technology is also referenced in the new Chapter of USP 1207 for integrity testing methods.   When this document is finally approved and released, it will have a significant impact on how companies weigh their choices in measuring the integrity and quality of a package.”

About VeriPac Technology

VeriPac technology is based on the ASTM vacuum decay leak test method F2338-09 which was developed using VeriPac instruments. Case studies using VeriPac vacuum decay technology have proven it is an effective non-destructive leak test method.  This technology has been widely recognized in published literature by the ASTM, PDA as well as the U.S. FDA regulatory guidance and consensus standards.   VeriPac package integrity leak test systems are available in several configurations according to package specifications and test sensitivity requirements.
