Seal integrity- the seals of each vial should be examined before the experiment to ensure that there are no defectives, and then each vial should be inserted into a tray containing the challenge bacteria. The samples should be cycled through temperature and pressure changes expected on the market for several weeks. Careful cleaning of the vials and examination of contents for sterility will determine the seal quality. a) Product and pack compatibility- the components must be washed and sterilized through a validated procedure. The vials must be filled with the sterile product under sterile conditions and terminally sterilized if this is a part of the intended product operation. Components performance should be monitored during the compatibility trials to ensure that deterioration has not occurred. Once a formulation has been agreed, the pharmaceutical company has to perform compatibility studies between the product and container to ensure the product degradation does not occur during the product market life. The material of construction requires careful consideration, particularly when the product is in contact with the container. It is necessary to ensure that the product does not deteriorate or does not become contaminated as a result of being in contact with the container, or that the product does not affect the integrity of the pack. A closure for a container for an aqueous parenteral preparation or for a sterile powder is a packaging component which is in direct contact with the drug.

The campaign aimed to collect more than 4,000 litres of plastic at the festival. Snack packets, plastic bags and bottle caps were collected and were be taken to Recycling Technologies, which recycles single-use plastics into a raw material used to make new plastic packaging products, the company says. These evaluations are employed when laboratory tests are not yet available or may not be able to predict recycling performance of a package component or innovation. In these cases, it may be desirable to test under regular production scale conditions.
This property of the packaging helps to measure the strength and quality of the materials and helps to determine the suitability of the material for different applications.

The most common tests of plastics are tensile tests, compressive tests, flexure tests, shear tests and torsion tests. Tension and compression tests involve the loading of the plastic along its longitudinal axis, but where tension tests pull the ends away from each other compression tests push them together. Flexure tests require the load to be applied to the midsection of the test sample so that it is bent into a “U” or “V” shape with the outside surface experiencing tensile forces and the inside face experiencing compressive forces. Torsion testing simply requires a rotational force or torque to be applied to one end of the sample while the other end is anchored. All of these tests are run until the sample breaks or ruptures with the stress and strain values recorded throughout the duration. Testing a plastic’s mechanical properties determines if it will meet the requirements of the desired application. Plastics are similar to metals in that they can be manufactured or produced using a wide range of procedures and material components in order to achieve the desired material characteristics. Typically the desired characteristics of plastic products are low cost, low weight, high toughness, high elasticity and ductility, and high strength in tension, compression, flexure, torsion and shear. These properties are defined by the chemical makeup of the material components used to produce the plastic and are more specifically dependent upon their molecular weight, hardness, density, and resistance to heat and solvents.

A starch product used as an anti-caking additive was not performing in the same manner as previous batches that our client had purchased. Karl Fischer Titration showed that the moisture contents of old and new samples were not significantly different. DSC analysis showed that the “bad” batch was significantly more crystalline than samples from previous batches. Thermal abuse from conditions during processing, storage, or shipping had led to retrogradation of the starch. Your sample considerations will vary based upon the testing plan required to meet your needs.
This is because plastic components contain other substances, such as plasticizers, stabilizers, antioxidants, pigments, lubricants and possibly residues from polymerization. Therefore, for components that are in direct with the product, this testing is required to ensure that the product is not affected during its life. When the components have been identified for a particular product, the validation of packaging operation is required. This is to ensure that a consistent pack quality is obtained at the required packaging rate. USP and IP provide two tests to determine the chemical resistance of glass containers. Ensure that the highly useful testing device can measure the bursting strength of the materials such as corrugated boxes, papers, cartons, multi-layered boards, single layered – boards, etc. Packaging products play a significant role to define the quality of the products. Packaging helps to keep the domestic as well as industrial products safe and unaffected from all sorts of interference and external impacts. Moreover, the prime factor of packaging is to make the products appealing and present in front of the customers beautifully. If the product does not appear good, it can directly disturb the quality of the products and can also modify the buying decisions of the customers.
