Checkmate 3

CheckMate 3 with Zr sensor from Dansensor.

The instrument is applied to measure O2/CO2 in sealed containers as a measure for shelf-life.

  • Checking gas composition before and during storage trials in MAP (modified atmosphere packaging)
  • Supplement to chemical analysis of products during storage/stability tests
  • Measurement of oxygen consumption in Teflon capped glass container or directly in the packaging
  • Oxygen consumption is sign of oxidation and the measurements are used for establishing optimal sampling times points
  • Zr sensor is used for measuring development of CO2 in the packaging, a sign of microbiological spoilage taking place
