GF Optical Inspection Machine Incorporation
Clausen has adquired an optical syringe inspection machine.
The syringe inspection for visible foreign particles is done over 100% of produced units, which is presently performed by manual process according to Pharmacopeias. The introduction of this GF automatic inspection machine has a very important impact on the manufacturing process for prefilled biological products, offering the following advantages:
Subjective factor is eliminated during the inspection
Control over the process is increased.
Inspection speed is doubled, impacting in total productivity.
Along with the particles inspection, the following controls are executed: side walls cosmetic control, needle tip cap cosmetic control, presence of liquid between the ribs of the plunger, presence of particles between the ribs of the plunger.
