MOCON, Inc: Non-invasive oxygen analyzer determines oxygen headspace and ingress in flexible and rigid packaging
Designed for pharma blisters, Mocon’s OpTech – O2 system is a non-invasive, non-destructive thermoformed blister package oxygen analyzer that uses an optical sensor that “fluoresces” or gives off light directly related to the amount of oxygen present.
Useful for determining oxygen headspace and ingress in flexible and rigid packaging. Blister packaging applications that depend on gas flushing to enhance the product’s shelf life, benefit from the OpTech – O2 system because it does not compromise modified atmosphere or packaging seals, or cause material breakdown, weaken barrier properties, or cause pinholes, etc. The system quickly evaluates what is happening inside a closed blister package under real-life conditions.
