Visual Inspection



100% Visual inspection is a mandatory practice for injectable manufacturers to guarantee both quality and patient safety
The finished package/product must be inspected to identify and reject:
 
  • Visible foreign matter contaminated units
  • Defects that could potentially affect product quality as those related with Container Closure Integrity
  • Cosmetic defects or non-compliance with User Requirement Specifications

Package systems –
empty / filled:
  • Vials
  • Bottles
  • Ampoules
  • Pre-Filled Syringes
  • Cartridges
  • BFS / FFS
  • IV Bags
Defects to be Detected:
  • Foreign Contaminants
  • Particles
  • Fibers
  • Cosmetic
  • Defective Caps and Closures
  • Fill Level
  • Product out of Specifications
 
  • Our Systems are used for 100% In-Line and Off-line Automated Visual Inspection of filled and finished Containers:
    • Measurement System is a computer based automated system that, taking images of Containers, visually inspect them to detect visual defects
 
  •  Automated Visual Inspection is accomplished by the following tasks:
    • Images Acquiring: A suitable collection of images of the Package are acquired using video cameras
    • Image Processing: Defects on the Package are identified and/or measured by using dedicated image processing algorithms
    • Decision Making: Packages classified as Non Conforming are rejected, Packages classified as Conforming are aspproved
