Packaging Testing & Analysis


Proper testing of packaging systems for medical device, pharmaceuticals, and food products helps to ensure safety, shelf-life, and endurance of the packaging.

Our scientists can work with you in the following areas:

Oxygen Content in Your Packaging

Manufacturers of medical devices and food products often use packaging with a reduced oxygen level  to minimize oxidation of the product and increase shelf-life. Determination of the oxygen level in the packaging is a useful way to determine the efficacy of the packaging process, and to monitor the packaging integrity over time.
