Container Closure Systems and Integrity Testing

Oct 07 - Oct 08, 2020
Las Vegas, NV

  • Education
  • The Americas

Overview

This training course provides insight into the fast-evolving regulatory landscape in the container closure integrity field and the latest development in testing technologies. This training course introduces a practical and meaningful methodology to construct package integrity profiles using a risk-based approach and appropriate Container Closure Integrity (CCI) testing methods.

During this training course, participants will have the opportunity to not only learn CCI requirements and testing theories but also receive hands-on training on various advanced CCI testing techniques including vacuum decay, electrical conductivity and capacitance, laser-based gas headspace analysis, and mass extraction leak test. Student will have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience through a method development case study executed using one of the deterministic testing techniques studied in class. In addition, participants can take advantage of the breakout sessions to discuss topics of interest with testing experts from major instrument vendors, such as PTI, ATC, and Lighthouse.
