Testing considerations

Considerations for package testing:

  • What is a particular set of data meant to demonstrate?
  • For that particular purpose, how many samples are required to produce meaningful results?


  • Are you interested in the strength and integrity of the added seal made by your company?
  • Are you interested in the strength and integrity of the pouch manufacturer’s seal?
  • Are you more concerned with the integrity of the seal or integrity of the whole pouch?
  • Would you prefer to monitor the strength in one location (25mm strip) or strength in many locations?

Rigid Trays or Blisters:

  • Is there one tool cavity or multiple?
  • Is one location representative of other locations?

Acceptance criteria

Ensure you create a clear table of sampling points around the pouch or blister and perform the multiplications for the necessary testing activities.

What are the acceptance criteria for each test?

  • Will your acceptance criteria at production be different to validation values?
  • Will your acceptance criteria in 10 years be different to initial production values?
