New Emphasis on Shelf Life Studies

With the increasing focus on package lightening and the introduction of new barrier and scavenger films, the food packaging industry is realising the ongoing importance of real time shelf life studies to the package design process.

In addition, given the fact that many products have an impact on their environments, the ability to perform shelf life studies on live packages (filled with real product) is also increasingly important.

OxySense, the leader in non-invasive oxygen measurement, offers a complete line of laboratory instruments that set the standard of non-invasive shelf life studies and the testing of live packages.

Whether your time scale is a few days, weeks or years, the lab standard OxySense 5000 series and the entry level OxySense 300 series are ideal tools for shelf life studies.
