To ensure your product’s quality, safety and performance, our CCIT specialists can perform mass extraction testing on any package containing headspace, including parenteral vial packages, screw-capped bottles and flexible bags or pouches. In some cases, we can also leak test liquid packages by this approach if the threat of product formulation-clogging leak paths is addressed.

Mass extraction leak detection operates by drawing a vacuum on a sample enclosed in a chamber. The instrument monitors the airflow required to sustain a specific vacuum level. The flow required to keep the vacuum steady is proportional to the flow escaping from leaks in the sample under test.

We report results quantitatively, as flow rates, as well as qualitatively (pass or fail) according to acceptance criteria established in method development.
