  • MOCON Announces Three New Accessories For Breakthrough Optech Oxygen Test System
    applications The OpTech oxygen test system has enjoyed significant success as a laboratory instrument however our customers have expressed the need for a portable option By pairing the lightweight and ergonomic reader with a 9 inch tablet in a carrying case we are pleased to announce that users now have the ability to test production line samples on the fly said Doug Lindemann vice president MOCON In addition to production line usage the instrument s light weight and portability now makes it suitable for package testing throughout the distribution chain all the way to retail if results from real life conditions are desired The second new option is a needle attachment with fluorescing sensor material applied to its tip for the OpTech reader By inserting the needle into very small headspace packages which cannot accommodate traditional testing methods an accurate reading of oxygen concentration can be made without extracting a sample In addition to headspace measurement it is also possible to measure the dissolved oxygen concentration in a liquid product with the needle attachment during the same test This option works well in both laboratory and field testing scenarios The third option is a first of its kind patent pending ImPULSE sensor designed to work with packages incorporating opaque materials or retort packages A tack with the fluorescent sensor material punctures the package and adheres via a self sealing adhesive The sensing material also is located on the self sealing side When the package is punctured a small hole is created Oxygen from inside the package is now exposed to the sensor which is sealed from the external environment A reading is then taken through the transparent head of the tack This system allows for measurements to be taken over time to determine the longer term effects of oxygen in
