Table top Container Closure Integrity Tester

The LF-S11 by Bonfiglioli is a countertop compact machine, designed for Non-Invasive, Non-Destructive Container Closure Integrity Testing of diverse types of Pharmaceutical Containers filled with liquid, lyo, powders, etc..

Suitable for In-Process Control and Laboratory use without altering container and/or content features.

The integrated software system allows full compliance to provisions stated in FDA 21 CFR part 11 as well as EMA Annex 11.

3 Configurations of the machine available to meet all specific requirements:

– BASIC, for most of the container formats 

– XL, designed specifically for large formats (more than 100ml)

– SY, designed for syringes, carpoules including automatic plunger stopping device

Equipment test method complies with:

– FDA Guidance for Industry “Container and Closure System Integrity Testing in Lieu of Sterility Testing as a Component of the Stability Protocol for Sterile Products”.

– United States Pharmacopoeia General Chapter «1207» “Packaging Integrity Evaluation”.

– EU Guidelines to GMP Medicinal Products for Human and Veterinary Use – Annex 1 “Manufacture of Sterile Medicinal Products”.

– PDA Technical Report No. 27 “Pharmaceutical Package Integrity”

All dedicated test chambers are designed according to the container characteristics for a maximum of leak detection sensitivity and are monitored by specially developed electronics during the testing process. The group has been recently redesigned to obtain improved functionality (quick

 single-handed opening and closing). It is directly installed onto the Testing Chamber supporting flange and it is composed by: – A fixed bottom part; – A removable top cap (upper part) that allows plugging up the testing group corresponding to Container loading and unloading operations.

HOW IT WORKS

The test chamber fixed bottom part is equipped with a mobile piston, plunger stopping device (PSD), having vertical motion between two limit positions, “upper” and “lower”, and having a section equal to that of the PFS plunger.

The initial vacuum, generated in the test chamber, produces an upward movement of the PSD.

The same “upper” position is kept until the second reading; at that time, the action of a dedicated pneumatic actuator provides for exhaust of vacuum in the test chamber bottom area and produces the PSD downward movement towards the “lower” position.

Fully automatic labelling system for glass or plastic syringes

The Newman NVS2 Labelling Machine is a fully automatic, self-adhesive labelling system designed for glass or plastic syringes and other similar cylindrical containers.

 

The NVS2 is a fully automatic, self-adhesive labelling system designed for glass or plastic syringes and other similar cylindrical containers.

The system was specifically designed to meet the requirements of the international pharmaceutical industry and all the regulatory bodies, including the FDA.

 

The product is fed into a vibratory feed track either directly from the customer’s existing upstream equipment, by hand, or optional syringe feeding system. From the vibratory track, product enters an indexing starwheel for transfer to the label applicator assembly.

For accurate label placement each individual label is detected at the labelling point as it passes beneath a sensor, (product orientation available as an option), at which point the label feed is activated. The leading edge of the label is driven off the backing web at a linear speed which matches the container speed. This ensures highly accurate label placement.

 

These are the key Features of the machinery:

  • Stainless steel construction
  • cGMP design
  • Stepper motor drive for label web
  • Straight label arm, adjustable in all axes
  • Accurate label placement
