Test strips are used for a variety of diagnostics in many industries (e.g. healthcare, environmental, food and beverages). A critical step in their manufacture is the verification that the seals (aluminium foil seals) are functional and do not present leaks. The Seeker to this Challenge uses a vacuum system for this effect but wishes to simplify its manufacturing line by deleting this additional step and integrating sealing check with other steps.
