CCIT

Blog

Lenox Laser is committed to ensuring the integrity of container closure systems in pharmaceutical and critical packaging. As part of this commitment, we adhere to the latest Container and Closure System Integrity Testing (CCIT) guidelines.
These guidelines, established by the FDA, recommend methods other than sterility testing to confirm container and closure system integrity. They apply to sterile biological products, human and animal drugs, and medical devices. Here are the key points:

Purpose and Scope:

  • The guidance provides recommendations for manufacturers.
  • It emphasizes using alternative methods to sterility testing for confirming container and closure system integrity.
  • These methods are essential components of stability protocols for sterile products.

Why CCIT Matters?

  • Federal Standards: Compliance with federal standards is crucial to prevent widespread damage to products and ensure public safety.
  • Reliable Testing: Companies need reliable methods to identify defects that compromise product integrity.
  • Calibration Assurance: Ensuring that machines detecting imperfections are correctly calibrated is vital.

What’s Lenox Laser’s Role?

  • Leak Detection Reliability: We contribute to the reliability of leak detection processes.
  • Calibrated Leaks: By intentionally introducing calibrated leaks using our products, pharmaceutical companies can monitor and verify that their systems meet quality standards.
  • Precision and Accuracy: Our proprietary laser drilling and flow calibration processes allow us to create orifices on a micron and sub-micron scale in various packaging materials.
  • Custom Solutions: We tailor our processes to accommodate specific requirements.

                Container closure integrity testing, or CCIT provides needed confidence in the integrity in pharmaceutical, chemical, and food packaging. Lenox Laser’s pioneering nature has expanded into this field over the past decade.

                Lenox Laser strives to deliver a controlled metric or standard using micro holes in pharmaceutical and critical packaging. These micro holes or calibrated leaks can be drilled in a variety of pharmaceutical packaging such as pill bottles, glass or plastic vials, and syringes. The leaks can be put into various locations and are each individually calibrated. Lenox Laser’s process of flow calibration and verification can be comprised of multiple steps and phases; each integral part along with the final assembly of the product is validated using these multi-step procedures. Lenox Laser also supplies special cross-calibration services through the mixed use of optical, mechanical, or flow calibration methods as means of validation and verification.
