Sepha BlisterScan - non-destructive leak tester for blister packages

Sepha BlisterScan – non-destructive blister pack leak tester

The Sepha BlisterScan is a non-destructive leak tester which identifies leaks as small as 7µm in individual blister pockets of pharmaceutical or medical blister packs. It is the perfect alternative to the methylene blue dye test. The BlisterScan blister package leak testing machine uses pressure, vacuum and a precision laser system to check for leaks as small as 10 microns. The software gives a clear result for each blister package and even shows you which cavity had the leak. Finally, there is a VALIDATABLE system for blister package integrity testing. If you are ready to move out of the stone age and leverage today's technology, give us a call and we will set up a demonstration for you in our showroom.
