Abstract Package integrity over the shelf life of a product is critical in order to demonstrate the ability to maintain product sterility. The development of a rational physical test method to evaluate the microbial barrier properties of sterile packages has necessitated its correlation to microbiological exclusion. In this study, the ability of a mass extraction leak detector to assess the integrity of multilayer pouches with a perforated microchannel was investigated as an alternative to the… CONTINUE READING
