Our pharmaceutical systems combine low-energy x-ray imaging with active pixel sensor (APS) technologies, to achieve high sensitivity through resolutions 10 times greater than traditional end-of-line x-ray technology.
As standalone systems or integration solutions, our pharmaceutical x-ray systems are subject to GAMP®5 design standards and incorporate data integrity according to 21 CFR Part 11. Bespoke projects are subject to qualification at every stage (DQ, PQ, IQ, OQ).
The constant evolution within the pharmaceutical and medical industries demands highly skilled and experienced engineers to develop new applications for custom projects. Our talented and experienced R&D team have a solid understanding of the standards and demands for these fields, making custom project collaboration easier for your teams.
We have a long history of working with pharmaceutical R&D departments to develop bespoke pharmaceutical inspection solutions. Find out how we combined X-ray with robotics to verify the integrity of autoinjectors via an inline inspection system for Oval Medical Technologies.
Our pharmaceutical x-rays can check drug delivery devices for product integrity to increase patient safety. This includes build quality verification of pumps and injectable pens to ensure high standards are attained.
Inspecting liquid medicines for gas bubbles is imperative for safe delivery. We can detect gas bubbles as small as 0.3mm in liquids contained within plastic tubes such as GLP1 slow release osmotic pumps.
Sapphire’s pharmaceutical inspection systems can measure the dose level of powdered drugs to a repeatability of <0.1mg in dose carriers that include powder inhaler devices.
For quality assurance inspections of tablets, capsules, and blister packs, choose from our budget system the A-Series, our best-selling G20 system or the sophisticated, high resolution pharmaceutical system, the G180. This systems will enable you to improve product quality through checks on dosage and product integrity (e.g. inclusion of patient leaflets).
Our systems can measure the dose level of powdered drugs contained in peelable strips, ring carries, and pellets to repeatability of <0.1mg.
As experienced problem solvers in the industry, we can provide solutions to inspect pretty much any pharmaceutical device or product. If you have a unique pharmaceutical x-ray requirement, contact our team for an expert consultation.
