When inspection needs perfection

Read Article

20171215ep59Sterile injectable products are extensively used in healthcare. Despite all efforts for producing sterile parenteral drugs that are ‘essentially free’ of particles, achieving such result has proven to be very challenging for the pharmaceutical industry. In many cases the observation of particles or container defects have led to product recall, sometimes causing drug shortage to patients.

Process improvement is an expectation of clinicians and patient population while quality standards are becoming more stringent. Each individual container shall, therefore, be inspected to the extent possible for the presence of observable foreign and particulate matter or other type of defects, such as container integrity.

With billions of injectable doses administrated annually worldwide, the need of reliable, efficient and technologically advanced automatic inspection machines has increased consistently.

Since the late 1950’s, Brevetti CEA has been manufacturing inspection machines for injectable pharma products. The company first concentrated on the production of semi-automatic machines until when, thanks to the intuition of the owner, the production shifted its focus on fully-automated inspection systems, which now represent the core business of Brevetti CEA.


The first automatic inspection machine was manufactured in 1980 when the availability of first photodiode sensors made it possible to automatically detect particles that contaminate pharma products. Today, Brevetti CEA boasts of more than 2.000 inspection machines installed worldwide, half of which fully automatic.

A continuous commitment to research, development and to parenteral product safety, has brought the company to become an undiscussed leader in inspection.

Fully responding to the expectations coming from the most advanced pharma sectors, Brevetti CEA offers a complete range of automatic inspection machines for injectable pharma products contained in syringes, ampoules, vials, cartridges and bottles. These innovative machines are designed according to the newest and most comprehensive concepts that cover the entire Brevetti CEA product line allowing customers to further enhance the recognised advantages of Brevetti CEA technology.

20171215ep60To complete its product portfolio, Brevetti CEA has recently launched the new ‘BH-S600’ machine. Conceived to satisfy the most demanding production lines, the ‘BH-S600’ can inspect ampoules, vials and cartridges filled with liquid products at the maximum speed of 36.000 units per hour.

Within the range of clear solutions and vaccine products, the combination of cutting-edge cameras with a new dedicated ‘Tracking Algorithm’ software for defects detection, grants high inspection performances.

Ground-breaking technologies, optimised mechanics and remarkable value for money are just some of the strong points which distinguish the new inspection solution of Brevetti CEA. With its state-of-the-art technology and a total re-designed look, the ‘BH-S600’ will definitely be the undisputed protagonist of the upcoming P-Mec show which will be held in Mumbai.
