PEKAT VISION’s visual inspection and quality assurance based on proprietary deep-learning algorithms and neural network has become an essential tool in the pharma sector. It ensures product quality, including packaging and seal integrity, sterility and appropriate labeling, helping to ensure regulatory compliance.
PEKAT VISION offers a selection of tools able to tackle many challenges in the pharmaceutical manufacturing, including completeness verification and packaging integrity inspection, defect and contaminant detection, label reading and verification and much more. Below you can find a few recent examples.
Liquid Level Measurement
Measurement of the liquid level in an antigen test is a recent application of PEKAT VISION. Particularly during the COVID pandemic, a common complaint was that there was insufficient amount or no test liquid in many ampules. Similarly is inspected the liquid content of vials, ampoules, or bottles and is often complemented with inspection of the integrity of packaging and contaminant detection. A backlight is often used for white or amber packaging
Foreign Object/ Contaminant Detection
Anomaly Detector and Object Detector are two PEKAT VISION tools that can be used to look for foreign objects among other solid objects, in packaging, or in liquids. The Anomaly Detector is trained on OK images only and detects any objects that deviate from the objects it was trained on such as in the left image above. In contrast, the right two images show the result of the Object Detector module that was trained to look for specific objects
Hypodermic Needle Sharpness Inspection
Needle sharpness is directly related to the pain level caused during the injection and a concern for the needle manufacturers. PEKAT VISION Classifier module offers fast and reliable inspection
Pill Integrity Inspection
Detector and Classifier modules are used to check that pills meet the required specifications including their dimension, shape, texture, color, and that they are free of defects
PEKAT VISION Detector and Classifier modules provides completeness verification ensuring that the manufacturer distributes only complete packages
Pill Blister Inspection
In the image above, the Detector and Classifier modules are inspecting the integrity of pill blisters. Individual pockets are detected and classified according to the state of the pill inside of each pocket as OK or NOK
Vial Liquid Level Inspection
Vials are important for storing liquid medications. The proper amount of liquid ensures accurate dosing. In the image above, the liquid level is inspected using PEKAT VISION Classifier module. Learn more in our blog.
