To be the leading global provider of optical-based non-destructive headspace analysis systems that lower the cost and ensure the quality of parenteral products.
What We Do
Our product lines are comprised of series of systems that non-destructively monitor headspace oxygen, moisture, and pressure levels in sealed parenteral containers. Our systems have been designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry and typical applications include 100% container closure integrity inspection, packaging developments container closure studies, at-line oxygen monitoring of oxygen-sensitive liquid products, formulation stability studies, and water activity measurements. In addition to manufacturing and marketing our headspace systems, we also provide Measurement Services which include the analysis of product sent to our analytical labs as well as providing lease headspace systems for on-site product inspection activities. As a science-based company, we provide our clients with knowledge and expertise gained from analyzing and inspecting millions of finished sterile drug samples from pharmaceutical facilities around the world.
The FMS-Series of benchtop headspace analyzers provide a portable and robust solution for development activities and at-line process monitoring. The VISTA In-Line Headspace Inspection machines enable 100% monitoring of headspace oxygen, moisture, and pressure (vacuum) in parenteral containers at production speeds. All LIGHTHOUSE headspace platforms employ a solid state laser technology called Frequency Modulation Spectroscopy (FMS) and proprietary signal processing to achieve sensitivity levels 10,000 times greater than traditional near-infrared (NIR) optical methods.
All of our systems are validated and registered with the FDA, EMA, and other national regulatory agencies for use in the US, Europe, and Asia. They are CE-certified and are CFR Part 11 compliant. Complete validation and FAT protocols are available for all FMS-Series and VISTA In-Line Inspection Systems. Our systems come complete with one or more sets of NIST-traceable calibration standards that are manufactured and certified by LIGHTHOUSE.
