Gross Leak Detection vs. Dye Penetration for Medical Device Package Testing

WESTPAK’s test professionals present a brief webinar comparing Gross Leak Detection and Dye Penetration as test methods for evaluating a Sterile Barrier System (SBS). We review the basics of ASTM protocols F1929 and F3039 (Dye), plus F2096 (Gross Leak) that describe the tests.

What’s Covered:

  • Brief overview of Dye Penetration testing per ASTM F1929 and F3039
  • Brief overview of Gross Leak Detection (Bubble) test per ASTM F2096
  • Review of the test equipment, advantages and disadvantages of each test method
  • Recommendations of which test type to use for various medical device and package types
