Recently we had a failure due to a cracked vial. The vial was sealed and
the crack was on the top of the vial right below the rubber stopper and
the metal cap. Therefore, it was impossible to detect the crack by naked
eye even during visual inspection of the sealed containers.
Have you ever confronted something like this? Do you have a specific
method regarding visual inspection on the top of the vials?
Should any defect of this kind occur how do you detect it, in order to
reject the container?
