MINNEAPOLIS — The new MultiCheck 300 system measures oxygen headspace coupled with leak detection and seal strength, according to Mocon, Inc., Minneapolis. It is suited for use in food, pharmaceutical and medical products that are shelf-life sensitive, and it may test a variety of packages, including flexible, rigid and composites.
To create the MultiCheck 300 system, Mocon combined two separate technologies, its Lippke 4000 series for leak detection and seal strength and its hand-held Pac Check 302 oxygen headspace analyzer. The MultiCheck 300 system reduces the time, labor and samples needed to conduct three separate tests.
