MOCON ANNOUNCES PERMATRAN-W 3/30

 MINNEAPOLIS, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- MOCON (Modern Controls, Inc.) (NASDAQ-NMS: MOCO) has begun shipping the new PERMATRAN-W(R) 3/30, a water vapor permeation test system. The PERMATRAN-W 3/30 is a modular water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) testing system designed to assess barrier materials and packaging. The 3/30 can generate specific relative humidities (RH) without using saturated salts during the testing of materials. The modular design allows for system expansion. Up to 20 test cells can be performing testing. It incorporates microcomputer analysis for maximum operator efficiency and software that speeds analysis.
 The PERMATRAN-W 3/30 utilizes MOCON infrared sensor technology to measure the amount of water vapor permeating through a test film or package. All testing and conditioning is performed at atmospheric pressure, and is much faster than traditional weight-gain techniques.
 MOCON is a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of high technology instrumentation designed to test packages, packaging materials, films and pharmaceutical products. The company employs several patented technologies to measure permeation of various gases, gauge thickness and weight variation during production of materials, and to test for leakage in quality control applications.
 MOCON testing instrumentation is used in research, production, and quality control applications in the food, plastics, medical and pharmaceutical industries.
 MOCON's shares are traded over-the-counter and are listed in the NASDAQ National Market System. The company's electronic NASDAQ trading symbol is MOCO.
