Leak Test Solutions at BIO Asia-Taiwan
Sepha will join agent Rieckermann for the first time at BIO Asia-Taiwan this month on booth L512 from 25 – 28th July. The exhibition that takes place in the Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taipei, will bring together biotechnology and pharmaceutical executives and investors from North America, Europe and Asia to meet and explore business opportunities with Taiwan’s emerging biotech sector.
Sepha will have two of its non-destructive solutions on show that have been developed to leak test packaging in the pharmaceutical industry.
Blister Leak Test
The Sepha VisionScan is a non-destructive blister leak test device that can identify leaks in individual blister pockets down to 7 micron (pack dependent). The machine uses a combination of vision with vacuum and offers pharmaceutical manufacturers a cost saving alternative to blue dye, as the integrity of the packs that pass the test is not comprised. This enable companies to reuse the product and put the packs back on to their production lines.
The non-destructive method provides reliable, objective and deterministic results. And as the machine doesn’t require tooling, it’s ideal for production lines running multiple products.

Container Closure Integrity Testing
The Sepha Multi-Q is a multi-functional leak test device, designed to operate in combination with a range of testing methods aimed at testing the integrity of different pharmaceutical containers. Testing methods that are compatible with the Multi-Q are:
- Vacuum Decay
Utilizes the ASTM F2338-09 (2013) test method to test vials, ampoules, bottles, pre-filled syringes, blow filled seals, medical devices and trays. The non-destructive, deterministic leak test device can identify leaks and channel leaks as low as 5µm and gives a pass/fail result in 10 seconds.
- Pressure Decay
Non-destructive, reliable and repeatable test method, ideal for testing the integrity of lyophilized and liquid filled vials, ampoules, bottles and other containers. The device shows a pass/fail result in 10 seconds and can identify leaks and channel leaks as low as 5µm.
- Flexible Membrane
Non-destructive, tool-less leak detection device designed for flexible or semi-flexible packaging. Using hybrid membrane technology, the flexible head utilizes the ATM F2338-09(2013) test method to perform the leak test. Ideal for testing gross or micron holes in pouches, sachets and bags that contain tablets, capsules, powders or devices.
These non-destructive and deterministic test methods provide quick, reliable and repeatable results enabling customers to improve the accuracy of their leak detection procedures and reduce cost as the method prevents the packaging from being damaged.
