Automated Carousel Testing System

Instron’s® Automated Carousel Testing System utilizes an innovative, adaptable design for testing of medical vials, cartridges, and pre-filled syringes. The small footprint allows it to be put on standard lab benches, adding automation to even the smallest labs. It is designed with easy-wipe-down surfaces and stainless steel covers for biomedical environments. The system is commonly configured to automate testing of residual seal force (RSF) and compression testing.

AT3 Automated Testing System

The Instron AT3 Automated Testing System utilizes an innovative, adaptable design for testing a variety of materials including: rigid plastics, elastomers, rubber, thin film, foam, and metals. With a smaller footprint than the AT6 robotic system, the AT3 provides a simple and compact solution while still maintaining high throughput and accuracy.

CT6 Cobot Configured for Syringe Testing

Instron’s CT6 can be configured as an automated solution for the required testing of syringes. Break loose and glide force testing constitutes the bulk of syringe testing and is used to determine the real-world forces required to operate the syringe. Cobots can be placed separately or in-lined to improve throughput and efficiency in both of these applications.

Instron’s CT6 offers the benefits of automation without the additional complexity of a fully automated testing system.

AT2 Automated XY Stage Throughput & Efficiency

For testing labs stretched thin by a limited number of operators or increased workloads, the AT2 Automated XY Stage is designed to improve throughput and repeatability, while also freeing up your operators to focus on other value add tasks.

Residual Seal Force Testing with the AT2 Automated XY Stage

Glass vials must maintain a robust seal between the glass vial and the elastomeric closure to prevent product contamination and leakage. Residual seal force (RSF) testing is an evaluation of the quality of this seal. To perform this test, a compression load is applied around the edge of a vial until the lower lip of the aluminum cap breaks away and begins to move in a direction opposite to the loading.
