Permeability measurements to ensure
sterile packaging & contamination free drugs
In the medical environment, the permeability of packaging plays a unique role in ensuring materials remain sterile and that drugs stay contamination free.
Our latest Permeability measurement equipment can measure permeability directly, allowing you to choose the most appropriate materials and manufacturing processes for your application.
Measurements can be taken for water vapour, but also for Oxygen, CO2, solvents, and most other gases.
The permeability meter measures to an accuracy in the parts per million range, (parts per billion for some gases and materials). These measurements only take around one percent of the time needed using conventional (gravimetric) techniques and sometimes can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes.
Our permeability measurement equipment can be used on very diverse range of medical products, containers, materials and packaging - including capsules, foil laminates and blister packs. It can also be used for inhalers, syringe and analytical instrument enclosures and even allows you to measure the permeability of some substances that decompose using normal measurement techniques.
