Micro-CT Examination of Seal Integrity in Glass Vials

Closure systems for glass vials containing parenteral pharmaceuticals are critical for protecting the contents against microbial or other environmental contamination. The most common closure system consists of an elastomer stopper held in place by a crimped aluminum band. Compression is applied during the sealing process, which can affect the closure integrity. We …
