Witt-Gasetechnik has released a new oxygen (O2)/carbon dioxide (CO2) gas analyser.

Oxybaby®, a mobile measuring device for checking modified atmosphere packaging, is ideally suitable for small packaging, for instance the vials or blister packs typically used for medicines, Witt-Gasetechnik said.

The device takes six seconds to reliably determine the O2 content in packaging. The O2 value is displayed in 0.01% increments and it only needs 2 ml of test gas to ascertain the residual O2 content. As well as O2 content, the Oxybaby can optionally ascertain the CO2 concentration and calculate the nitrogen (N2) content.

The German-based company said, “The measurements are conducted randomly. To this end, the inspector pierces the packaging with the Oxybaby® needle and takes a sample at the press of a button. The results can be assigned to different product lines, products and users. The memory can hold up to several hundred entries. Data exports are possible at any time – an important function for complete documentation and certification. Witt naturally provides appropriate analysis software for this.”

“The durable O2 sensor makes the Witt device especially economical. Another major advantage that is popular with users: The pump responds automatically to any blockages in the needle or filter and adjusts the output so that a correct measurement is ensured despite this. A warning message indicates serious blockages to the user. Further options include integrating a barcode reader for even faster operation or driving a printer via Bluetooth.”
