The MediBLUE automates the industry standard Methylene Blue Dye test, where packaging is submerged into a blue dye solution. The test chamber is then placed under a vacuum that forces air from any openings within the pack. After returning to an ambient pressure, the dye will penetrate and be evident within the pack should any holes be present.
Blue dye testing has proven to be a popular package leak detection option within industries such as pharmaceutical, medical devices and consumer products. This is due to it’s simple, valid and reliable results, in addition to low capital costs.
The MediBLUE range is available in two configurations, the Pre-set and the Programmable.
Based on a discrete electronic circuit design, the MediBLUE Pre-set does not require any software validation. The system is supplied pre-set with parameters, as specified by the users S.O.P. Both audible and visual alarms are integrated into the instrument, to alert the user at the end of each test cycle.
Alternatively the pre-set manual MediBLUE system allows the user to set the Test Vacuum, Vacuum Hold and Ambient Dwell times during packaging development process to determine the optimum test conditions. The system can be locked into a Run mode, preventing any unauthorised changes to the test method.
