Leak Testing for Healthcare Packaging

Leak Testing for Healthcare Packaging

Consumers won’t buy pharmaceutical products from companies they can’t trust. A big part of building trust with consumers is ensuring the integrity of the packaging that products come in. Pharmaceutical manufacturers stand to lose a lot of money if bottles leak and lead to product loss. ALPS leak testers help pharmaceutical and medical manufacturers prevent product loss by automatically rejecting defective bottles.

Our machines use pressure decay to test for leaks. ALPS leak testers are highly effective for a wide range of healthcare-related packaging and items, including:

  • Infant formula bottles and packages
  • Body powder containers
  • Eye drop bottles
  • Liquid medicine bottles
  • Nutrition supplement bottles
  • Prescription bottles
