Does state of the art leak testing impact today’s clinical outcomes?

Posted by:

  • Fail-safe systems for delivery of new and ever more expensive oncology drugs, infusion therapies, and even long-established methods for blood transfusions and more all rely on leak-proof plastic medical bags.


  • These staples of clinical treatments now also need to be durable for homecare uses. Because they come in various sizes and configurations -some relatively large volume; some with closures that allow precise metering of pharmaceutical deliveries; but all needing to be leak-proof at precise pressure conditions—they require versatile by consistently high-precision leak test methods and instruments.

Question – Isn’t leak testing irrelevant for near future AV EV models?

Answer: Leak Testing is More Critical Than Ever for New AV EV models!

  •  Will the electronic controls in AV EV models be failsafe?
  •  Will radar systems maintain integrity for the life of the vehicle?
  •  Will cameras maintain optimal visibility over the vehicle’s lifetime?

These may be relatively new questions for most automakers to grapple with but they are issues that InterTech’s Test Engineering Specialists have grappled with and perfected solutions in past decades for a wide range of applications – testing seals around underwater cameras, to protecting laparoscopic surgical instruments, to protecting electronic controls in outdoor applications.


IDC’s Showcase at Assembly Expo Chicago

ISO 14971 Compliance – Dry Air Leak Testing

Posted by:

Demanding medical device leak standards — where leaks as small as 0.71 microns come into play have traditionally been handled by tracer gas-based leak test instruments. These machines are relatively costly that encumber operations with unnecessary costs and drags on production lines.

InterTech is now working with a growing number of global medical device manufacturers to ensure ISO 14971 compliance using InterTech’s patented mass flow dry air leak testing technology to reduce test times and testing costs.

Contact IDC to ensure your ISO 14971 compliance with dry air leak testing.
