Helium Leak Detection is a highly sensitive quantitative test method for evaluating Container Closure System (CCS) components for critical parenteral | injectable applications.
Helium Leak Detection (HeLD) technology is the most sensitive leak detection method providing quantitative leak rate data far exceeding the limits of detection of other methods. The technology is so sensitive that it can help determine the inherent integrity between specific primary container closure system components such as syringe barrel/piston combinations.
Helium leak detection is also valuable to accurately analyze the effect of processing variables on your current container closure system, such as parenteral vial capping applications, elastomeric closure selection or varying sealing parameters.
Another benefit of helium leak detection testing technology is the ability to evaluate a container or packaging system under conditions of use – direct comparison of container/package performance at room temp, -20˚C, -80˚C, and even cryogenic (-178 ˚C) storage for example. In addition, the rate at which helium escapes from a primary container system can be closely correlated to the rate at which water vapor, oxygen or other gasses may enter or escape from a container.
