Mocon and Inspection Systems open test lab in Australia

IS Laboratories to offer seal strength and leak detection testing services

Mocon and Inspection Systems are in partnership to provide testing services using Mocon instrumentation

Mocon, a US provider of instrumentation and and consulting and laboratory services, is partnering Inspection Systems, of Melbourne, Australia to establish a certified lab for permeation, seal strength and leak detection testing for food and pharmaceutical packaging.

Inspection Systems, which supplies inspection and testing instruments and services and has operations in Australia and New Zealand, has created a separate entity, IS Laboratories, to support the partnership by providing testing services using Mocon’s instrumentation.

IS Laboratories will be the first Mocon-certified test facility in Australia and the eighth in the world. It will provide oxygen, water vapour and carbon dioxide permeation testing, burst and pressure strength testing, as well as pressure decay.

‘Mocon certification assures that companies using any one of these facilities will get the same level of service and quality,’ said Alan Shema, Mocon’s Product Manager for consulting and testing services. ‘This is ideal for multinational companies, which can now be assured that their materials or packages are tested using identical standards and protocols on four different continents.’

Additionally, for companies in Australia and New Zealand interested in purchasing Mocon instrumentation, IS Laboratories offers a demonstration service in a geographically-convenient location before committing to a purchase.

Mocon certified laboratories are located in the US, Germany, China, India, Canada, UK, Switzerland and Australia.
