Position Verification for Vial Filling

Liquid injectable or lyophilized (freeze dried) pharmaceutical products are usually packaged in aseptic environments. Typically, an automated liquid filling machine performs filling, stoppering and crimp capping of vials continuously at rates of 100 to 200 vials per minute depending on fill rate and vial size. Stoppers are either applied with full insertion for liquid injectable or partial insertion for lyophilized products onto the glass vials.
