Case Study

Stevanato Group recently installed a second visual inspection system for a pharma company located in Central America, filling and finishing 2R vials with vaccines for children, and upgrading it with new inspection functionalities.

The challenge

Inspect a turbid suspension in containers filled with
low-volumes of drug product. The equipment needed to be capable of handling current and future production speeds while reducing false-rejection rates.

The solution

By integrating our advanced trajectory algorithm for particles and line scan cameras to detect cosmetic defects, Stevanato Group was able to inspect containers at a mid-high speed (24,000 pieces per hour) while ensuring optimum product integrity.

Thanks to a turbidimeter, we were also able to measure the aluminum gel phosphate concentration, a stabilizer that preserves the vaccine's shelf life. A quality element that has everything to do with the fundamental safety and efficacy of the company’s vaccine.
