Testing push strength for removing medicine from PTP packaging Syringe resistance test
- Test push strength required for PTP
packaging for medicine.

- Measure strength required to push
medicine out of blister packs (PTP).
Strong packaging makes removing
medicine difficult. Conversely, weak
packaging poses the opposite problem.
Measuring the optimal strength required
to push out medicine is essential.
- Measure the strength required
to push down a syringe.

- Check the smoothness of the
plunger movement
