Seal testing is performed in the operation and performance qualification steps of validation. For PQ, ISO 11607 Part 2 says that three consecutive successful production runs are typically evaluated at the established sealing parameters. Manufacturers determine the frequency of subsequent in-process seal testing based on risk assessment considerations.
The Aergo family of medical tray shuttle sealers from Alloyd Brands was originally designed to meet operator needs—and the latest line extension is no different. The Aergo 2 Max PS can accommodate larger packaging sizes, yet is narrower in width, satisfying specific operator suggestions. These are just a few of the new model’s features, which were unveiled at EastPack 2009 in New York City in June.
