It’s a rapid test requiring no changeover or sample preparation. Operators simply input the number of pharmaceutical blister cavities, place the blister pack on the inspection plate and press the START button. Within seconds, the operator sees a definitive pass/fail result, along with a volumetric measurement reading. The location of the defective cavity is presented to the operator with an image of the tested package. The small footprint kiosk design is ideal for positioning next to any production line. The clean and simple test approach makes it clean room compatible. The intuitive and simple method makes it a practical solution giving rapid feedback to production line operators.
The UBV technology is unique in that it can provide rapid detection of defects as small as 10 microns with a fast test time, averaging 10-30 seconds depending on blister cavity volume. Test system requires no tools or test parameter changes for different pharmaceutical blister formats. This technology is particularly advantageous for small to tiny blister cavities that are notoriously difficult to detect with a standard vacuum system due to the very low headspace.
