The VISTA Headspace Inspection platform is an automated in-line 100% inspection machine designed to simultaneously monitor oxygen, pressure, and moisture levels in sealed parenteral containers. The patented machine platform was originally developed with funding from the Food and Drug Administration and received the 2004 Parenteral Drug Association New Innovative Technology Award.
The automated headspace machine platform can be configured for total headspace inspection. The VISTA/THC In-Line Inspection System is an in-line, 100% inspection and rejection system designed to simultaneously monitor oxygen, pressure, and moisture levels. The VISTA/THC System is capable of directly measuring oxygen concentrations, total pressure/vacuum levels, and moisture levels in the headspace of optically transparent packages. Applications include 100% container closure integrity testing of lyophilized and liquid product, headspace oxygen monitoring during the filling of oxygen-sensitive product, and 00% moisture determination of freeze dried product.
