Hardly visible to the naked eye, the micrometer deformations on the tip of a cannula represent considerable risk to the functionality and safety of pre-filled syringes—and, therefore, also to the health and well-being of the patient receiving the injection. That is why it is essential that such needle hooks are detected during the packaging process and the syringes in question removed in good time. This is now achieved reliably with the further-developed Heuft Syringer.

The further-developed Heuft Syringer, which fulfills fundamental FDA, GMP, GAMP5, and 21 CFR Part 11 requirements, is extremely compact and very easy to integrate into packaging machines for pre-filled injection instruments. Faults and defects become visible with the new additional optics.

The X-ray detection identifies numerous other safety and integrity defects of pre-filled syringes after the caps have been applied with unrivaled low radiation—such as soft and rigid needle shields (SNS/RNS) pierced by the hypodermic needle, bent and deformed cannulae, or incorrectly assembled, unsafe-to-use, defective, or leaking Luer lock screw adapters and tamper-evident closures of disposable syringes.

The compact detection unit can be upgraded with innovative, additional optics for detecting needle hooks, which extends the pulsed X-ray technology for careful and precise pre-filled syringe inspection. An intelligent color sensor camera, developed by Heuft, examines the tiny needle tips from above, even before the protective covers have been added. The special light dispersion of the adaptive LED lighting used for this purpose ensures that even the smallest shape faults become visible.
