We can implement Quality Control of surface defects such as cracks and chips. For transparent capsules, or soft gel type, we can also check for bubbles and contamination. We have the ability to confirm the presence of logos and dosage values, including the presence and position of drug release holes. All this prevents accidental product mixing, or incorrectly marked or faulty product reaching your customer.
