MOCON’s new optional add-on film cells for the OpTech O2 Platinum analyzer make the instrumentation the first to accurately measure perforated flexible packaging structures, as well as high-barrier alternatives, says the company. The optional film cells come in two sizes -- 50 cm2 (12 cc) and 100 cm2 (500 cc). The cell’s sensor responds to the concentration of oxygen. As such, the smaller cell accommodates high barrier structures and the larger cell is well-suited for perforated materials, says the company. Typical applications for these flexible packaging structures include food, pharmaceutical and medical disposables where barrier and other key performance attributes are critical to reaching shelf life goals.
