Water vapour is the world’s most damaging contaminant – not only in its own right as it also reduces the effectiveness of healthcare and medical products, but also as it brings with it both chemical and biological toxins and impurities.  It reduces potency, shortens shelf-life and permeates straight through the material of any receptacle, package or blister.  Liquids and aromatics vital to the product can just as easily seep out in the same way. 

To counter this Versaperm has introduced a multi-chamber based instrument that allows you to identify and correct problems by measuring the vapour permeability not just for water vapour but for virtually any carrier gas.  A wide range of sensors is available for specific applications including mass spectrometry. 

The permeability measurement system is typically accurate in the Parts per Million (PPM) or Parts Per Billion ranges and it works just as well on tubes, jars, containers or packaging as it does on products ranging from a single capsule in a unitary dose (blister) pack, injectable or clean peel system, through to moisturisers, grooming products and cosmetics.

The latest Versaperm system can produce results in as little as 30 minutes for some materials.  This speeds the never-ending quest for quality control and effective packaging with new marketing and technical features. 

The new instrument can measure several samples at the same time and, additionally, Versaperm offers a fast turnaround laboratory testing service and a consultancy service.
