Sepha To Show Non-destructive Multi-Bottle Leak and Seal Tester For Pharma

Sepha Ltd. at PackExpo, Las Vegas on Sept 23 will launch BottleScan, which the company says is the world’s first tool-less, non-destructive, multi-bottle integrity tester for induction-sealed pharmaceutical bottles.
Launched with Sepha’s North America distributor Service Industries, BottleScan was designed, developed and manufactured at Sepha’s UK headquarters. BottleScan uses force decay technology to detect weak seals and defects down to 15 microns. It has a tool-less design and can test up to 4 bottles simultaneously in a quick test cycle of approximately 60 seconds.
The system produces objective ‘pass/fail’ results enabling good bottles to be returned to the production line. BottleScan has the ability to run in compliance with 21CFR Part 11, offering pharmaceutical manufacturers and packagers a more technologically advanced, accurate and efficient solution for testing the integrity of induction-sealed bottles, the company said.
“BottleScan is the latest addition to Sepha’s integrity testing product range and has been developed in response to increasing market demand for a more advanced, technology based integrity test for induction-sealed bottles,” said Paul Kelly, Sepha’s head of sales & marketing.
“Its tool-less design and configurable methods make it ideal for pharmaceutical lines running multiple products. Operator error is also eliminated as the quick, repeatable test provides objective data which is securely stored and can be built in to current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) and used as part of robust QA testing. We look forward to showcasing it for the first time at Pack Expo,” Kelly added.
Sepha and Service Industries will be at Stand C5100 for live demonstrations of BottlesScan throughout the show.
