  • 1. PACKAGE INTEGRITY
  • 2. PACKAGE INTEGRITY DIR Technologies provides comprehensive thermography based Solutions for in-line Quality control and process monitoring of pharmaceutical and medical devices packaging lines In the pharmaceutical industry, the package is of crucial importance as it fulfills several functions, such as maintaining sterility and hermetic closure to keep out moisture and oxygen. Generally speaking, the package must be able to keep its original properties for the shelf life of the product after undergoing the rigors of manufacture, transportation, storage, handling and aging. The traditional approach to package integrity testing in the pharmaceutical industry is based on sampling. This is partly because real time 100% testing solutions were not available, or result in a considerable slowdown of production. Leak tests or standard machine vision are limited in performance and can provide only partial solutions DIR Technologies techniques, based on Dynamic Thermography, have proven to be effective for fast, real time, 100% monitoring of a variety of pharmaceutical packaging processes.

  • 3. Thermal imaging has many intrinsic advantages for testing the integrity of the packaging, notably • It can see through most of the plastic materials commonly used in pharmaceutical products. 8 blue placebo minitablets (265 mg) • Many packaging processes involve heating, that makes Thermal Imaging an advantageous monitoring tool.
