Laser-based headspace gas analysis at arms reach for pharmaceutical and food packaging inspection
Headspace analysis is classified under the CCIT procedure and is a laser-based, non-destructive, and fully automatic inspection method for sealed packages that measures the quantity of certain gases in the so-called “headspace” i.e. in the space inside the packaging not occupied by the product of a hermetically sealed package. It allows for measuring oxygen concentration, carbon dioxide, residual moisture content, and absolute pressure value with the aim of verifying the headspace conditions and their maintenance to confirm stability and sterility in filled and finished packages.
The LASERCUBE is a benchtop instrument conceived for performing the Headspace Gas Analysis (HGA) of sterile pharmaceutical containers. Fully automated test cycle sequencing with manual loading and unloading of containers.
