LIGHTHOUSE’s market-leading headspace analyzer systems make finished product inspection fast and efficient.
Measuring and assessing headspace conditions against packaging and formulation specifications provides certifiable results about final product quality. LIGHTHOUSE equipment designs specifically meet the finished product inspection needs of the sterile pharmaceutical industry.
LIGHTHOUSE has been leading the innovation of headspace testing equipment since developing the first commercial system in the late 1990’s.
Container Closure Integrity Inspection
LIGHTHOUSE has partnered with Bosch to develop high speed, high performance headspace leak detection systems for identifying loss of container closure integrity (CCI) in sterile products. Loss of CCI can occur due to component defects (cracks in glass, out-of-specification vial/stopper dimensions or improper vial/stopper combinations) or process defects (displaced stoppers prior to capping, misaligned tooling, rough handling).
Laser-based headspace leak detection systems from Bosch powered by LIGHTHOUSE measurement technology enables rapid automated in-line leak detection by monitoring changes in headspace gas composition or changes in total headspace pressure.
Headspace Oxygen Inspection
LIGHTHOUSE’s market-leading non-destructive headspace analysis systems allow for statistical sampling or 100% inspection of headspace oxygen levels for all products. Batch rework to check headspace oxygen levels in finished product may be necessary due to issues in the manufacturing process such as out-of-specification nitrogen purging. LIGHTHOUSE instruments perform headspace oxygen analysis on packaging lines just before package labeling ensuring that critical specifications are met.
Finished Product Moisture Inspection
LIGHTHOUSE’s market-leading non-destructive headspace analysis systems allow statistical sampling or 100% inspection of headspace moisture levels for product with a moisture specification.
Performing headspace moisture analysis on packaging lines just before labeling ensures that no out of specification product is released to the market.
