What is Package Integrity and Seal Strength Testing?

STERIS provides an invaluable, independent test service to simulate typical events associated with the distribution environment, to validate packages for distribution, and to certify them as compliant with ASTM, ISTA, and ISO test Standards. Physical test methods may be used to validate that the package integrity has been maintained throughout the package’s processing, expected shelf life, and handling.

Integrity Tests Include:

  • Bubble leak testing
  • Dye penetration testing
  • Burst testing
  • Peel and tensile testing
  • Vacuum leak testing
  • Microbial challenge
