Particle Test Samples for Visual Inspection
eyetec provides Visual inspection test sets such as our Particle Test Samples (PTS). Visual inspection test sets are used to assess and validate the performance of Visual Inspection systems and operators in the pharmaceutical and other industries such as the cosmetics industry. These sets typically consist of standardized samples that simulate various types of defects and foreign matter that might be encountered in real products. By using these test sets, companies can ensure the accuracy, consistency and reliability of their visual inspection processes.
The inserted particles can vary in nature and size, ranging from glass or rubber splinters of around 80 microns to fibres of up to 3000 microns. Each particle is measured: this involves ultramicroscopic measurements determining the size of the particle, typically in micrometers (µm). But also other product characteristics can be taken into account such as colour, turbidity, surface tension of viscosity. We can develop and produce placebos to mimic your product. The measurement data for each particle and test set is documented. Ultramicroscopic images with dimensions of each particle are included.
eyetec also produces other product defects, like over and under filled samples, turbidity or colour variations and container defects such as cracks, scratches, or cap and crimp defects.
Today, we provide all the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies with Particle Test Samples.
Particle Test Samples (PTS) are used to test and qualify the effectiveness of the methods and equipment used during the visual inspection process of aseptic products. eyetec started with visual inspection (VI) but gradually introduced its own samples to the market in addition to VI & CCIT consultancy services.
In this way eyetec can guide and serve pharma customers through the entire process. To avoid contamination while producing these Particle Test Samples, the filling and sealing process is done in eyetec’s laminar flow booth, which is an isolated clean environment. Before releasing the samples to the client, they are double checked on a semi-automatic visual inspection device.
We ensure fast delivery worldwide. eyetec is ISO 9001:2015 certified for the production of Particle Test Samples
