Guidance for Understanding Container Closure Integrity Test Failures

Published Date: October 5, 2022

Does a container closure integrity test (CCIT) failure always mean a defective closure? In this webinar, failure modes that can occur on a perfectly sealed container will be discussed along with how to determine if a CCIT failure is a true container leak or something else. Additionally, learn about the value of product-specific method qualifications to ensure the test method and fixturing are suitable for your product, as using a less-than-ideal test setup can lead to false failures.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding of CCI test methodology and validation
  • Common failure modes that are not true leaks
  • Benefits of individual method qualification and cost
