VALIDATION CONNECTIVITY WITH SEAL STATS

POUCH SEALING

CONNECTED WITH

SEAL STATS

With our patent-pending SEAL STATS™ system, you can connect in real-time with our select medical device packaging machines. Get sealing data and critical alerts 24/7 right in the palm of your hand.

Medical Device Packaging deserves real time machine connectivity

The most critical component in your medical device packaging line is your pouch sealing machinery. Historically medical device packagers would only periodically sample machine functions in order to be certain that their equipment was functioning within spec. This process created large windows where medical device pouches were improperly sealed, risking medical device sterility. With the SEAL STATS™ system, quality managers can now review in real-time machine functions and receive non-conforming alerts from their packaging equipment on their mobile device. Watch your validated medical device packaging process from wherever you are with SEAL STATS™.

MACHINE HISTORICAL EVENTS

Medical device packaging engineers can review pouch sealing activities over a five-day period to better trend machine functions. This trend analysis can help medical device packaging engineers understand potential creep in their process in order to make machine changes that may prevent pouch sealing failures.

SEAL PERIMETER ALARMS

Imagine the power of receiving a text message or email when your medical device pouch sealer generates an error code. This is where the magic begins with the SEAL STATS™ system, the ability to connect engineers with critical machinery. Why risk a medical device packaging recall stay connected with SEAL STATS™.

WAVEFORM PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS

Closely evaluate performance waveforms from your medical device packaging machine in order to get a quick visual reference of machine adherence to your process. With waveform generation, you can overlay performance curves over previous days to better trend potential creep events with your medical pouch sealer.

Data at a Glance

Calendar Feature

A quick glance at the calendar function on the SEAL STATS™ System allows packaging engineers to quickly review medical device pouch sealing events. Within the calendar function, engineers can observe packaging machine activities on a specific day in order to trend packaging machine behavior.

Packaging engineers can also overlay specific calendar event activities to performance test data such as peel and burst testing. This granular data collection can be a valuable metric to better understand machine behavior as it relates to output data such as seal strength. The calendar feature will also list alarm activities over a 30-day period.

SEAL STATS™ VISUAL INSPECTION TOOLS

POWERFUL SEAL INSPECTION

REFERENCE TOOL AND

SOLUTION DATABASE…

SEAL STATS™ now has in-app integration of our VIU™ visual seal reference database. This will allow packaging engineers to compare their visual seal anomalies against a comprehensive database of known seal failures. Identifying the type of visual seal failure is the first step in developing a cogent solution. After identifying the seal issue, you can navigate to well-defined remedies for your medical pouch sealing challenge.

The VIU™ reference database was developed by our certified packaging professional in our ISO 17025 accredited medical device pouch testing laboratory. This reference tool was created to simplify visual seal inspection with the goal of encouraging regular visual seal inspection.

Your Medical Device

Packaging Machines

If you are a medical device packaging engineer or a supervisor at a hospital SPD center, you understand the risk of a failed medical pouch seal. With the SEAL STATS™ system, a problem notification on your critical medical device packaging line is just a text alert away.

As a medical device packaging supervisor, you can only solve problems that you are aware of, so imagine the power of real-time connectivity to your medical packaging equipment. The SEAL STATS™ system relays valuable machine data such as temperature, conveyor rotation speed, and critical force so you can monitor these critical attributes’ compliance to your process.

Critical Sealing

Machine Parameter Alerts

wherever you are…

Whether you are in the cleanroom or miles away you can now receive critical parameter failure alerts on your mobile device or computer. The SEAL STATS™ system recognizes when a medical device pouch sealer has fallen outside of acceptable parameters and then sends an alert via text messaging through the mobile app or as an email. This feature helps to alert anyone on the quality team that is registered to receive alerts so they can quickly respond with appropriate actions.

Stay connected to your critical packaging function and avoid potential product recalls due to non-conforming packaging equipment failures. The SEAL STATS™ System is an invaluable tool to keep your medical device packaging program on track with real-time connectivity to your critical medical device packaging machinery.
