Oxygen test system

December 6, 2012
oxygen test system mocon optechThe MOCON OpTech oxygen test system for food applications uses an optical sensor that gives off light directly related to the amount of oxygen present in package headspace or dissolved oxygen in a liquid product. An ergonomic reader with a 9-in. tablet in a carrying case enables mobile testing away from the lab. A needle attachment with fluorescing sensor material applied to its tip is inserted into small headspace packages to provide an accurate reading of oxygen concentration without extracting a sample.
