MOCON, Inc., of Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, has announced that it has formed "a global network of Mocon-certified permeation testing laboratories to provide independent material and package performance verification, regardless of location." The company says that it has certified seven laboratories in North America, Europe, and Asia, and intends to offer affordable permeation testing services around the world at laboratories that have been certified by the company.

Mocon says: "The Mocon-certified laboratory network targets a broad range of companies ranging from multinational corporations, which would benefit from a local facility capable of duplicating gold standard testing protocols, to smaller firms [that] may only have need for a few validation tests per year. Certification means that the state-of-the-art instrumentation has been installed, inspected and is maintained by a Mocon-factory authorized service technician and that the laboratory staff has been trained on Mocon corporate test lab methods/protocols and record keeping to ensure quality and equivalency."

In conjunction with the certified laboratory network, the company adds, it is also introducing the Mocon Data Check 4 program, which offers periodic permeation testing services for an annual flat rate.

In addition to Mocon's laboratory at its U.S. headquarters, certified laboratories have been established in Germany, China, India, Canada, the UK, and Switzerland.
