Our experts provide a range of services that assess the container performance of your solid and liquid dose products. USP <671> provides a series of test methods specific to the functionality and performance of containers and package systems used for solid and liquid dosage forms. Testing is specific to moisture transmission rate and spectral transmission (light resistance) for the container sample under test. Depending on the container type — plastic bottle with closure, blister card, single unit dose system — specific moisture transmission test procedures are performed. Certain transmission rate tests provide specific pass/fail specifications while other tests are designed to provide an informational dataset.

We perform the following test procedures:

  • USP<671> MVT Desiccant Method 1- Multiple unit Containers
  • USP<671> MVT Desiccant Method 2- High Barrier single unit and unit-dose containers (Blisters and Pouches)
  • USP<671> MVT Desiccant Method 3- Low Barrier single unit and unit-dose containers (Blisters and Pouches)
  • USP<671> Classification Based on desiccant Method- Method 4- Closures without an induction seal
  • USP<671> Classification Based on desiccant Method- Method 5- Closures with an induction seal or No closures (impervious seal)
  • USP<671> Classification Based on desiccant Method- Method 6- Blister packs and Pouches
  • USP<671> Classification Based on Water Method
  • USP<671> Spectral Transmission (Light Transmission)
