Medical device manufacturers are held to a higher standard when it comes to safety and durability. Ensuring that leaks don’t negatively impact devices is at the top of the list for safety and durability purposes for both patients and care providers. The diverse GES leak detection solutions allow manufacturers to detect the presence of a leak in virtually any application. These ground-breaking technologies provides the utmost certainty when addressing design, manufacturing, and QA/QC issues for medical device manufacturers. Additionally, GES is ready to collaborate with your team to ensure that each solution is customized to the specific needs of your device and manufacturing environment to automate the inspection of your medical device components.
Leak Testing

Optical Leak Detection

This GES patented process uses a combination of pressurized gas, light, and machine vision to not only detect the presence of a leak, but to provide its exact location.

Pretest the following components before assembly:

  • Switches
  • Buttons
  • Ports
  • Speakers
  • Cameras
  • Cord seals
  • Subsystems
  • Housings


  • Non destructive
  • 100% inspection possible
  • Provides path to rework
  • Recordable for Quality Assurance and product production tracking
  • Test process times below 5 seconds
  • Accurately locates leak

Differential Pressure Testing

  • Automated inspection for waterproof and flow testing
  • Various Designs Include:
    • Single Cavity Desktop
    • Multi-Cavity Manual Load
    • Multi-Cavity Automated Load/Unload
  • The measurement cycle consists of 5 phases:

Electric Leak Tester

High voltage, low amperage electrode to ground configuration energizes air molecules to find path from one side of nonconductive material to another. This system can detect a single hole to micron level diameter, with process times under one second.

Suitable for testing medical products including:

  • Plastic bottles
  • Bottle caps
  • Condoms
  • Medical gloves
  • Plastic bags
  • Membranes
  • Plastic bottles
  • Tubing
  • Syringes
  • Filters
  • Plastic cups
  • Tape
  • Plastic housings
