You will find below the abstract of the presentation of the PTI E-Scan 655, micro leak tester.

CCIT Container Closure Integrity Testing HVLD Micro Current


The E-Scan 655 technology is a MicroCurrent conductivity test method, HVLDmc , that is completely non-destructive to the container and product; exposing the package and product to lower voltage than other conductivity based solutions. The technology uses a non-contact and non-invasive test method that requires no sample preparation. E-Scan 655 can be used with a wide range of liquid based products including low conductivity sterile water for injection (WFI) and proteinaceous products with suspensions.
The study focuses on CCI testing using the MicroCurrent HVLD technology, and tangentially addresses limitations of Vacuum Decay with protein filled products, and their clogging effects.
The study was done with 1 mL and 2.25 ml glass syringes containing either water or Albumin. The samples tested included a series of negative controls (non-leakers) and certified positive controls (leakers).
