Headspace Gas Analysis Testing

Headspace gas analyzing refers to the measuring of O2 or CO2 concentrations within a package. This testing is imperative for accurate shelf-life predictions of finished packages, including MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) and vacuum-packed products. 

Our PAC CHECK Systems are used in production, quality control, and R&D applications. This measures O2 or CO2 concentrations with small sample amounts collected. This same analyzer can be used for both flexible and rigid packaging.
