Mocon, Inc., Minneapolis, has established multiple in-house package testing laboratories that allow companies to "test drive" instrumentation before purchase. Capabilities include head space, water vapor, leak rate and hole size determination, burst, creep, seal strength, heal sealing, hot-tack, coefficient of friction, vacuum decay and shelf life analysis.

"The primary function of these labs is to provide our clients with a pre-purchase testing environment so they can see first-hand why Mocon instruments offer the best solution to their testing issues," said Guy Wray, marketing manager. "They can then make their purchase with confidence knowing that the instrument they have selected will provide the desired results in their own laboratory environment."

Mocon provides instrumentation and consulting and laboratory services to the food industry along with other industries such as food and pharmaceutical. For more information, visit
