New Non-Destructive Inspection, Blister Recovery and Packaging Technologies Launched by Sepha

Three new products aimed at meeting the changing demands of global pharma-companies are being introduced by the pharmaceutical packaging equipment specialist, Sepha. They will be formally launched at Interpack, Dusseldorf, on 8-14 May.

The first machine, BottleScan, is the world’s first tool-less, non-destructive leak detection instrument for testing multiple induction-sealed bottles simultaneously. It incorporates force decay technology to test induction-sealed bottles for holes and weak seals without destroying the contents. Ahead of its European debut, BottleScan has already attracted orders from Asian and North American customers.

Press Out Universal Mini is a low volume, rapid product change over deblistering unit that enables product to be recovered from all blister pack types, particularly child-resistant, peelable and senior-friendly packs. The unit has been developed to reflect changes in the pharmaceutical manufacturing market, where manufacturers are focusing on shorter runs of more bespoke, high value drugs in child-resistant or senior-friendly blister packs.

Finally, EZ MedPak extends Sepha’s ‘EZ’ range of low volume, package development units into the wider medical packaging market. It is aimed specifically at medical device and packaging development teams who want to take control of their own pack designs and develop bespoke packs for small devices and pre-filled syringes.

Commenting and their debut at Interpack, Sepha’s head of sales and marketing Paul Kelly said: "Sepha is focusing on innovation, by investing in new technologies and developing our product offering in line with market demand. Our new equipment extends our range into new markets and will meet the changing demands of our global pharma clients. We look forward to showcasing these additions and to a successful Interpack."

The three new machines will be on demonstration alongside existing technologies such as the VisionScan and PakScan in HALL 16 BOOTH F23.Or alternatively visit Sepha’s website to arrange a call back.

Detecting leaks in blister packaging has traditionally involved a destructive process, but non-destructive methods, which do not result in wasted products, have emerged as viable...
Demonstrating the integrity of pharmaceutical blister packs is critically important, as any defects can affect the shelf life and efficacy of the contents.
This white paper will test the hypothesis that the VisionScan is considered non-destructive.
